Getting to the Heart of Your Business: a lesson in messaging

June 4, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Have you found that creating the messaging for customers of your business is really hard? Having someone experienced and outside your business to help you with your messaging can be a powerful way to make breakthroughs. Grant Dew brings an objective perspective to the critical art of creating the messaging for your business.

Don’t miss this interactive workshop on Tuesday, June 4th at Station 2 that will help you get to the heart of your business.

Networking starts at 5:30PM Workshop at 6:00PM

In high-school Grant Dew launched a recycling project, the Green Division, to aid local businesses’ ability to deal with their recyclable waste bi-products that he still oversees today. Over the years he has birthed several other businesses ranging from light carpentry/handi-work to graphic design. His latest startup, Haniya’s Design, is a graphic business started to aid he and his wife’s calling to adopt. Haniya’s Design offers services ranging from rebranding to business coaching to printed materials and much more. Ultimately, Grant loves to empower others to consider the “why” of their businesses. His most anticipated business achievement is helping others remember why they do what they do and seeing that revelation impact how they do what they do.

Grant Dew serves alongside his wife, Ashlee Dew, as Next-Generation Pastor at the Source Church. He is a graduate of Union University in Jackson, TN where he received a degree in Biblical Studies. He has served in ministry for the past 7+ years. In addition to his experience spreading the Gospel, starting small businesses have played a pivotal role in his ability to follow his calling in ministry.
