This new series of online coaching events, known as “ Success Saturdays,” has been designed specifically for small business owners, and the first broadcast will be hosted by Tarkenton, Office Depot’s Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer Bob Moore, and a panel of real-life small businesses. The webcast will allow participants to submit questions directly to the panel and find opportunities to connect and chat with each other following the event.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and through our partnership with Fran Tarkenton, Office Depot is elevating its commitment to empowering these very important customers,” said Moore. “As one of the most successful and well-respected entrepreneurs in the nation, Fran has been a champion of small business for decades and will bring valuable in-the-trenches lessons to Office Depot customers.”
