The Centerville Seminar Center located at 875 Centerville Road in Warwick is now the home of Prophet Share, Inc., formerly known as the RI Small Business Recovery Program. This program has emerged as an excellent example of what has become internationally known as “a sharing community”. In simple terms, “a sharing community” removes duplication that doesn’t add value and concentrates on things that do add value.
Through participation in Prophet Share, talented business owners and trainers (prophets) no longer have to individually own projection, video and recording equipment. Nor do they have to rent expensive classroom or hotel space in order to share their talent and experience with their peers. Instead, they jointly have access to a newly redecorated facility that will seat forty-two attendees and has cutting edge technology, internet access for up to forty individuals simultaneously and, a kitchen facility to serve food and beverages.
As the result of this “penny-pinching” sharing approach, Profit Share, Inc. will be able to bring high-quality business training to the Rhode Island entrepreneurial community on a meager budget of less than $25,000 annually.
While the organization is changing its name, it is not changing its direction. Prophet Share, Inc. will continue to provide high quality seminars and workshops to the area small business community. In the past thirty two months, the Recovery Program provided peer-to-peer training to over 7,000 business owners and entrepreneurs. With the collaborative efforts of experienced business leaders and teachers, Prophet Share, Inc. is expected to greatly add to that number.
