You have to be at SHOP 09 this Monday, April 6, 2009.
Portland is the eye of the storm when it comes to all entrepreneurial success, green to go and small business triumphs – even in this economic climate, whatever that is.
Which means that you will hear more than 30 of those successful entrepreneurs share their expertise, inspire the masses and give back what they’re gotten from all their hard work.
SHOP Symposium 09 is a unique opportunity to hear people like Kent Lewis, founder of Anvil Media, Inc. one of the best SEO marketing agencies on the planet. Surely you’ve heard about Mindee Doney, co-founder of Little Busy Bodies, Inc. and Boogie Wipes. Her Boogie Wipes, amazing gentle saline wipes for tiny noses, are being sold in 30,000 retail stories across the country after only two years from the starting gate. Other speakers are no less well known – Marlynn Schotland founder of Mamapraneurs, Inc., Kathi O’Neil, publisher of Portland Picks and Alice Dobson who took Portland and New York by storm with her Sofada line. She has been featured in Lucky Magazine, Oregon Business, Fashion Ledge Magazine and in boutiques across the country, as well as here in Portland.
It’s amazing when you realize just how many savvy business owners and entrepreneurs are here in Portland … walking among us!
Here’s a list of other speakers who will share their expertise and savvy business experience:
Drew Force, Blackfish Creative founder; Jennifer Wong who owns the company called Muse, Lisa Johnson, Author and CEO of Reach Group; Mark Hayes, Founder and CEO of Flowerbud.com and Sarena Regazzoni, Director of Marketing for Oregon Entrepreneur Network (OEN) to name just a few.
