Simone Bruni, a New Orleans resident, was a corporate meeting sales planner by trade prior to Hurricane Katrina, selling the city to high end convention planners. She led her customers through the bayous and plantations, as well as the best restaurants in the Crescent City. She showcased the city with a passion and flair of southern hospitality. When Katrina hit, her life changed completely. As a single woman with no construction experience, rebuilding was a daunting task. Instead of relocating she decided to stay, rebuild, and help her neighbors. "Sometimes a disaster can open some of the greatest opportunities in one's life. In the middle of tragedy, I discovered something beautiful - hope heals - and it can also be a good business." Although the event planning and demolition industries are very different, they have one of Simone's passions in common - serving people.
Join us to hear Simone's story, and learn how she reinvented her life from bitter lemons into sweet pink lemonade.
Networking begins at 11:30am with the program starting at 12pm. Please confirm your attendance by Tuesday, June 18th.
