Who needs a red velvet rope, when you have a red velvet curtain to showcase your skills and talent?! Learning the different elements in creating a successful event can be both challenging and rewarding at the same time.

Being an event planner and owning a business is a learning experience that our Guest Speaker, Cindy Lo, will be sharing with us. She will be telling us her insights and stories on how she built her international awawrd-winning company, Red Velvet Events. Through mistakes and triumphs, we will be able to learn: how to unlock our creativity, handle finances, take risks, how to master our networking skills, find the right clients, and define our company's culture.

Cindy Lo will also be presenting her Bestselling book Behind the Red Velvet Curtain: Build and Run the Event Planning Business of Your Dreams at the meeting and will be giving out autographs as well.

You will earn 1 CE credit in Sales and Marketing for attending this program.
