Always wanted to meet your MNN bloggers in person? Then I hope you live in the Los Angeles area and can get up early this Saturday because the networking group Women of the Green Generation is back with its second annual conference. And I'll be there as a part of a panel on green marketing!
But first, about the event: The Women of the Green Generation conference is an all-day affair, featuring not only the usual speakers and panels, but also eco-spa treatments, an "ask the experts" forum, a mini eco-expo of sorts featuring green goods, short eco-films and more. Plus, attendees can get organic food and drinks all day — including a light breakfast, a lunch catered by Large Marge Sustainables, and a closing reception.
This is one green event where women take the center stage. Speakers include raw food chef Ani Phyo, author of "Gorgeously Green," Sophie Uliano, Rachelle Carson Begley of "Living With Ed" fame, Zhena Muzyka of Zhena's Gypsy Tea and many others — like myself!
When: Saturday, May 14 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Where: Marrakesh House, 6310 Tompkins Way, Culver City
Cost: $35 in advance, $50 at the door.
I'll be on the 11 a.m. panel titled "Marketing 911 — What you don't know could hurt you," which will tackle marketing techniques for green businesses, with an emphasis on social media strategies. Other panelists are Venice's Whole Foods Market marketing director Kelly Layne, Tracy DiNunzio of Recycled Bride, and Susan Neisloss of Working for Green. Susan Emmer of Farmacy Agency will moderate.
Hope to see you there!
