Government's affect on Small Business

Brian Hicks, President & CEO of Hicks Partners in Columbus, will update our members on what is happening from the Ohio Statehouse to the U.S. Capital and its impact on small businesses. Whether it’s groundbreaking legislation or simply a reshuffling of the legislative agenda, Brian will provide an overview of the issues affecting business’s bottom line and offer insight into critical upcoming policy proposals and the politics surrounding them.  In addition, Brian will talk about new funding and incentives from various government agencies that can support business growth. 

Prior to forming Hicks Partners in 2003, Brian Hicks had a long career as a public affairs official in a variety of key roles in federal and state government and on local, state and national political campaigns.
