2017 Women Business Advanced Marketing Conference June 15, 2017 By Doris Symonds

As a small business owner, my professional mentor/advisor, Ken Klotz at Bradley University gave me this advice: You must market your business for customers to find you! You must work on your business for customers to connect with you! And, you must learn how to balance your time working in your business!

Have you ever thought about learning from a host of small business owners who are confident, well read in their field, profitable, innovative, and articulate while maintaining a high level of sustainability? How great would it be to have face to face contact to ask questions of a company president? How beneficial would it be to take control of your learning to enhance your business or to become a first time business owner? Would you be interested in learning advanced marketing strategies, business resource tools, selling your products to neighboring cities or countries, investing your money wisely, connecting with like-minded people and company presidents? An opportunity exists for people like you to make things happen for yourself!

The 11th annual conference with the theme: Advanced Marketing Analytics is hosted at the Par-a-dice Hotel on June 15, from 8 am to 2:30 pm.

There will be six workshop sessions, luncheon keynote speaker and exhibitors.

Conference Cost: $69 Early Bird Special before May 15 or $75 thereafter. Luncheon and keynote only at $50.

Get on board and join us if you are interested in starting a business or learning innovative things as an existing business owner.
