Throughout his keynote, he will explain why there are no bad ideas and how to better invest in ideas at your business.


Six Amazing Panelists:

Investing in Your Budget

  • Veronica Passalacqua, Co-Founder of The Beauty Spot
  • Kelli Thompson, Owner of Kelli Thompson, MBA
  • Jessica Anderson-Conard, Director of Client Services at Revel Brand Design

Budgets don’t have to be big to be powerful, especially when marketing your brand to a local audience. Sometimes starting small is the best way to prove and test results. Our panel of local marketers/small business owners will share examples of how they have leveraged different budgets to increase their business goals.

  • Ingrid Alverde, Economic Development Manager at City of Petaluma
  • Cameron Hattan, Co-Founder, VP Account Mgmt and Education at Fiddler’s Greens

Life in the North Bay has been forever changed since the Wine Country fires last October. Now more than ever, the economy is focused on getting tourists to our area and encouraging people to buy/eat/shop/go local. Our panel of Sonoma County leaders (wine, food, tourism and cannabis) will discuss how the changing economy and digital marketing has affected their industry.
