I planned to post something for you on Friday but I was so busy with an event on Thursday evening and conference on Friday I'm just now getting to it. Thursday evening, I sponsored a reception for A Connected Affair, Women in PR BootCamp Summit. The reception was held at the Terrell Moore Art Gallery in Downtown, Los Angeles. The event was planned by YES Productions & Concierge and The Kartel Company. The evening was was intimate, full of electricity and the perfect place to connect with women putting action behind their words when it comes to building a business that thrives in this economy. The BootCamp Summit was geared towards PR and Event planners with the purpose of going over all the details of planning special events and obtaining sponsorship. I was able to attend a portion of the Bootcamp which focused on event sponsorship. I am so happy to have found the Women in PR organization. they are an amazing resource from PR professionals as well as entrepreneurs who handle their own PR. The organization fosters growth and encourages it's member's to give back in the rapidly changing world of public relations. Although I could only attend for 2 hours, I picked up so much information to use for many of my upcoming LA Girls Do Cook events. This year is all about growth and taking calculated risks to get my business to the next level. I was able to meet some amazing Publicists who work are responsible for a host of Celebrity hosted red carpet events. I even met someone from the Food Network. I often have Chefs and other entrepreneurs asking me the steps on how to work with celebrities or get press. It's by knowing the right people, building lasting relationships, strategy and a lot of prayer. Out of this event, I met a dozen publicists who work with celebrities and some of the most sought after brands. Did I mention I have a tasting scheduled Thursday for one of the publicists clients who will be having a major party in Vegas?!!!! I can't wait to blow the client away with my food and presentation. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to get paid to do what I love and to be able to make others feel special. I've gotta run but I want to leave you with a few pics from past events. Next week I'll post the albums so you can view the complete gallery. When I receive my pictures from A Connected Affair event from my Photographer, I'll post them.
