Of the many exciting aspects of the 2014 Raw Living Expo, taking place January 31 – February 2, 2014 at the Hyatt Westlake Village, the Rawntrepreneurs Business & Marketing Conference on Friday January 31 from 9am – 4pm will be a powerful day of enlightening education, especially for raw foods enthusiasts and heart centered entrepreneurs looking to start or grow a business in this billion dollar segment of the food industry.
With a mission to help raise individual and organizational consciousness toward ever more sustainable and regenerative business practices, the conference will educate Raw Foods business people, a.k.a. Rawntrepreneurs, and other heart centered businesspeople, from start-up to succession planning to reflect nurturing relationships with all stakeholders: shareholders, employees, customers, supply chain, distribution channels, local community, society and the environment.
The Rawntrepreneurs Business & Marketing Conference will be a day of ideas and experiences presented by international thought leaders and start-up survivors in the raw food industry and beyond. Topics covered will include publicity & marketing, raw food restauranteurship, public speaking, energy mastery for business success, branding through authentic character, creating systems in business, raw food manufacturing, how to turn your ideas into dollars with web technology and more.
The Rawntrepreneurs Conference will help raw leaders get the leg up on the latest tools, techniques and trainings for getting their powerful message out to the world and creating a successful business around it. The event will also facilitate networking among Rawntrepreneurs and create more cohesion in the raw foods industry.
Speakers scheduled for the Rawntrepreneurs Business & Marketing Conference include noted inspirational presenter and entrepreneur Sheevaun Moran, branding expert Paula Schaper, internationally renowned public speaking and performance coach Jonathan Bender, Living Light Culinary Institute directors Cherie Soria & Dan Ladermann, CEO and New Agreements in the Workplace author David Dibble, Juice Feasting and web sales expert David Rainoshek, noted San Francisco restaurateur Quentin Navia, marketing expert Deborah Tumlinson, leading raw food line Living Intentions founder Josh McHugh and more, all hosted by Chris Whitcoe of Intelligent Coach.
All the talks will be given in the popular ‘TED Talk’ style, so they will be short, just 18 minutes, but packed with telling anecdotes, stories of lessons learned, and great advice for both new and experienced Rawntrepreneurs.
