CEDAR CITY – Guidance provided by retired business executives at SUU’s Business Resource Center is made possible by volunteers like Neal Smith and Joanne Brattain, who no longer go to the office daily but still want local businesses to flourish.

“The key to a strong community is volunteer work,” said Smith, who spent 31 years in marketing, advertising, and non-profit organization management.

After moving to Cedar City six years ago, Smith got involved through SUU’s BRC. Donating his time as a SCORE volunteer allows him to counsel new and prospective business owners on the responsibilities of starting and managing businesses.

Smith also provides feedback to people with ideas for business ventures and helps them gauge the likelihood of their companies’ success.

“I’m here to help people prepare to run a better business,” Smith said.

Brattain also has vast experience.

She spent more than 20 years in high-tech fields.

Brattain also has experience in marketing and employee training. She began her career in systems programming, and later expanded into sales and sales training.

“I thought (SCORE) was a great way to assist our business community and therefore, the health of Cedar City,” she said.

Brattain said she hopes businesspeople in Cedar City will know that there is a place that can provide assistance to them.

“The BRC is a terrific resource,” she said. “We have workshops on how to get started with a small business, business mentoring ... help with all areas.”
