Laura Henderson is the Founder and CEO of BizConnect Hampton Roads. Her passion is helping local small business owners grow their business and increase their profits and presence in the community. Her experience comes from 15+ years at Pilot Media / The Virginian-Pilot as an Art Director and Operations Director where she was responsible for hiring employees, day-to-day business operations, human resources, customer service, revenue generation, strategic planning, process improvements and business continuity.
After leaving Pilot Media, she started her own marketing business, WIN LOCAL STUFF, which is an online business promoting local retail stores, restaurants, artists, service providers and more. Win Local Stuff grew into more than promoting businesses through online contests so she started local networking events as a way to bring new customers into her client's businesses. As the events grew, BizConnect Hampton Roads was created and the events combined bringing potential new customers to her member businesses as well as connecting the local business community.
Laura is also a member of the Hampton Roads Chamber, Downtown Norfolk Council, the Retail Alliance, LOVEVA, Hampton Roads Business Outreach (HRBOR), the Ghent Business Association, and also serves on the Board of the Ghent Business Association and participates on the membership committee and marketing committee.
