Pavese Law Firm’s Christina Harris Schwinn Introduces Junior Achievement CEO Academy Participants to Real-World Strategies for Starting a Business
Pavese Law Firm partner Christina Harris Schwinn spoke to entrepreneurial-minded teens on June 21 during Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida’s annual CEO Academy. Schwinn, whose primary practice areas include employment law, business transactions, community association law and real estate law, provided students with background on the legal and financial considerations when forming a new business, including strategic business planning methods such as the SWOT Analysis.
During the week-long camp, participating high school juniors and seniors learn about business operations from experienced local professionals, participating in hands-on activities such as creating business plans and marketing packages based on case studies of specialized international corporations. “Teaching kids the SWOT Analysis or how to evaluate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats involved in a business or project venture, is valuable to their understanding of the internal and external factors that can impact their success,” says Schwinn. “Given the current economy and business culture, it’s more important than ever to provide tomorrow’s business leaders with real-world insights and experience.”
Schwinn, who joined Pavese Law Firm in 2005, is an accomplished public speaker. She regularly writes articles that have been published both locally and nationally in a variety of publications. Schwinn is available to speak to local businesses and organizations on a variety of employment and business development topics and can be reached at 239-336-6228.
