This is, by far, not your standard business function. From the topics to the venue to the speakers, our goal is to meet entrepreneurs where they live and offer current and candid insight, as we did in our previous events. No formalities and no canned responses…just real information from those who have successfully navigated the process of launching and growing a business and leading a team. The panelists will discuss their backgrounds, successes, and challenges along the way and offer advice to fellow business owners. There will also be live Q&A exchange as well as the ability to pre-submit questions for the panel to discuss at the event.

Speaker(s): Tracey Abby-White, Sr. Director of Sales

  • Enablement at IronNet Cybersecurity and current chair of the Brookdale Board of Trustees,
  • Carol Gabel, President of Seven Pearls
  • Alexis Castellano, Co-founder, FASTEN (now WOWEASE),
  • Claribel Cortez, Co-founder, The Setroc Group, Inc.,
  • Lara Nikola, President, Smart Sips Coffee,
  • Marcy Ragan, Owner, Relish Your Chef,
  • Roseanne Tobey, Founder, Calm and Sense™ Therapy

Although this is a free event, space is limited so attendees are required to pre-register. There will be door prizes and a cash bar. We look forward seeing you there!.
