Thank you, everyone. It is scary to have huge portions of your revenue evaporate instantly, but this gives me the hope and motivation to carry on, working with our partners and customers and looking for new ways to serve the need (we provide in home childcare).
Pat Williams
Great meeting. Many thanks to the Chamber for organizing and to all the panelists for thoughtful comments. I found this inspiring.
Shelton Welch
Thank you Oakland Chamber for putting this on. Though I’m a Fremont resident, it was good to see how Oakland Chamber is working to bring partnership together. I see Oakland as my city, a city where I spend my money through dining and education opportunities.
