Speaker: Kevin Grossnicklaus, President, ArchitectNow
Topic: Unlocking the Power of AI for Small Businesses


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the way businesses operate and compete. It can be used to automate tasks, generate content, streamline operations, and help key employees make critical decisions. Whatever industry you are in, AI will affect how people work and live. While we don’t have all the answers, this talk will be a great way to start to understand what is possible and to plant some seeds on what you and your organization should be considering or be prepared for.

This talk will introduce the audience to the general capabilities of AI as it is currently being adopted by many businesses.   We will discuss how AI is used in a variety of real-world scenarios and will utilize Microsoft Copilot 365 to demonstrate what is possible. The talk will address common concerns such as access, cost, pre-requisites, and security.  We will also demonstrate how AI can be trained with company-specific information and data to provide significantly more value than what is available to the average consumer. Regardless of what your role is at your organization this talk will provide insight into the modern workplace and how AI is being used by your peers.

Fenton Chamber luncheons are held monthly on the first Wednesday of the month.

Special School District is proud to co-host the 3rd annual St. Louis County Apprenticeship and Career Pathways Showcase with the Affton, Pattonville, and Rockwood school districts. Families and students in grades 6 through 12, as well as recent graduates, are invited to these FREE events to experience a variety of careers through interactive exhibits and discussions with industry professionals. 

 

Sponsored by American Welding School, the showcases will connect attendees to exciting and fulfilling job opportunities, many requiring training instead of a traditional, 4-year degree. Regional employers seeking young talent will be ready to share information and guidance about career pathways, including healthcare, advanced manufacturing, construction, information technology, and public safety. Some industries will offer hands-on activities and opportunities to work with equipment to ensure students enjoy an immersive experience.

Events are planned for the following dates and locations:

  • Saturday, Feb. 24, 10 AM to 1 PM, at Eureka High School

  • Saturday, March 2, 10 AM to 1 PM, North Tech High School

  • Saturday, March 9, 10 AM to 1 PM, South Tech High School

Business Neighborhood: Dierbergs Fenton Crossing
Let's Get Together... In Your Neighborhood!  
Meeting members & supporting businesses... one neighborhood at a time!
The Fenton Chamber is committed to meeting members where they are. Through the "In Your Neighborhood" program, we make it EASIER for our members to connect with Fenton Chamber staff and fellow members, as well as meeting fellow business owners near them that they may not meet at other events. With each of these IYN events, we select/target a "neighborhood" location by choosing a meeting place for breakfast/lunch/after hours. All are welcome to each IYN event, but we do make an effort to personally invite members (event non-members) within close distance of that location to attend.

No event fee; attendees pay their own way
