WHAT IS THE EVENT?: Created in 2015, The South Sound Small Business Summit's purpose is to support the South Puget Sound's (South King, Pierce and Thurston County) businesses through an educational event that inspires and connects the community.

WHY DOES THIS EVENT EXIST?:  We believe that the local business community needs a place to learn from other business owners success and failures, marketing techniques and other ways to grow and expand your business.  We do this to give back, not to make a profit, that way everyone can succeed in business. 

WHO SHOULD LISTEN?:  Business leaders, managers and entrepreneurs looking to make the most of their business, employees and profit. Businesses with large or small revenue should attend, the topics help all businesses regardless of size.



How to work ON your business, not IN your business

Josh Dunn- Owner-Premier Media Group

 There is a bridge every entrepreneur must cross in order to grow a business beyond a certain point, a point where they must transition from “doing” to “leading.” It means stepping back from day-to-day operations and slipping into the role of overseer. Josh Dunn who is the owner of Premier Media Group will share his story about how he has done this in his business and some of the challenges he faced as well as how this crucial step has benefited his business.

Get out of your Comfort Zone

Jude Larson- Owner- JML Real Solutions


Freedom from Fear: How to get out of your comfort zone for the benefit of your business.

What is fear?  Noun: an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that something is likely to cause pain.

Fear can be a valuable thing. It keeps people safe and encourages caution where caution is due.

But it is more often a limiting thing: Not everything you’re afraid of deserves attention or caution. And sometimes, moments of bravery are what are needed to make your business and even life better.

Jude Larson from JML Real Solutions will show you that when you push through fear and out of your comfort zone, amazing things happen.


Growing your successful business

Brian Harding- Owner- The Plumbing & Drain Co. 

Brian will take you through his experience starting a business, with his two partners Eric and Randy, in the worst economy in 80 years in 2011 and walk you through growing that business, which now has sales of over $5.5MM in annual sales, for the first 3-5 years.  He will cover things they did well, lessons they learned along the way, and how to implement key processes and philosophies to ensure success.
