Testimonials


Tim Burg is responsive and ready to help whenever asked. Tim is a connector between the business community and city staff. He is a valuable resource for retailers and real estate developers.
Caleb Hill, Precor Ruffin
Tim Burg and the staff at Shawnee Forward have been very helpful in providing us information about what is going on in Shawnee and the surrounding area. We have benefited from receiving contacts of new businesses coming to Shawnee and exposure to local business people through events held at our facilities.
Richard Hefner, Bar H Bar Branding Iron
We are extremely grateful to Shawnee Forward for promoting COWIB programs and supporting our mission to help strengthen the workforce in the Shawnee area. The Shawnee Forward Virtual Job Fair is a relevant resource that we share with employers to help locate talent. This partnership with Shawnee Forward continues to expand as we collaborate on workforce opportunities for our community.
