Developing the course offerings at Worc-It Business Lab has been the culmination of  a long, hard but rewarding road that my team and I have been on for several years now at SMGraves Associates.

Now more than ever we’re discovering new ways to deliver  professional development to citizens that satisfies their vocational as well as avocational goals.  Our work sits at the heart of our advocacy for economic equality, access to education as well as access to cutting edge resources for economic development.

Partnering with The Worcshop is a key step for our team, as owners Randal and Angela Meraki have charged us with  seeking innovation in the delivery and curriculum development of our Worc-It Business Lab.

All Marketing classes are arranged in multiple hour long sessions at specific levels of ability. Disciplines represented include digital marketing, email marketing, Facebook marketing, public relations & Twitter.
