PORTSMOUTH — Small businesses in and of themselves face a plethora of challenges. In light of this fact, Trinity Business Group (TBG) will host a BE Conference with a theme of ‘Connect, Communicate and Community,’ on Saturday, Jan. 23 from 9 a.m. to noon at The Lofts, 840 Gallia Street, Portsmouth.
Sean Boldman, owner of Trinity Business Group, and visionary of the BE Conference, a series of Coffee Education events preceded this first BE Conference.
“Yes, I opened up Trinity Business Group more than two years ago since then we have been working to encourage small businesses in our area,” Boldman said. “Over the last few month Trinity Business Group has hosted a few free Coffee Education events focusing on social media. Up until this weekend they were “coffee education” events. This is our first BE conference,” Boldman said.
Boldman said BE started out as Business Enhancement, and they quickly realized the conference would mean so much more. Being Excellent, Bold Endeavour. Building Entrepreneurship.
Expressed interest from participants past events, inspired Boldman to confer with others to host a more detailed event.
“After the last event many of the attendees asked if we could do a more detailed event. So we called a Think Tank meeting at TBG to start the process on what was going to be important to success business people,” Boldman said. “That is where we came up with our focus of We’ll be focusing on the ever-important topics of connection, communication, and community, with three dynamic speakers and plenty of guidance to help you grow your business.
Bryan Davis VP of Sole Choice will be the keynote speaker of the BE Conference. Two other featured speakers will be Matt Seifert of TownCal.org, Zack Sims of Reach Success Coaching.

Howard Newton, owner and team leader, also known as ‘Mr. Transformation,’ of Get Fit – Get Healthy, said he has enjoyed participating in TBG’s Coffee Education events, and looks forward to participating in the BE Conference.
“I enjoy attending these coffee workshops. They provide an informal opportunity to network and interact with other local like-minded business leaders with similar goals covering a wide variety of topics,” Newton said. “For me, the BE Conference allows me to be exposed to ideas and acquire skills to continually building a relationship of trust with my current and new customers. “
Establishing relationships provides opportunities to share information about products and services available in the community.
“I might have the greatest product or service on the planet, but if nobody knows about them or can try them for their selves, they benefits no one,” Newton said. “Attending the last BE event at the Port City Pub, my greatest takeaway, If no one known what you do or how you can positively impact their lives, you are not really in business – you have a hobby. I am looking forward to this Saturday’s BE event.”
Small business is the heart and life for communities, according to Boldman.
“I believe that small business is the life of our community. My heart for starting Trinity Business Group is to grow small business in our area. Healthier business will mean better jobs, more opportunities, more social events and a better community,” Boldman said.
