I AM NOT A BUSINESS OWNER. CAN I BENEFIT FROM ATTENDING FLOURISH MEDIA CONFERENCE?
Totally! When you attend the conference one of the revelations we hope you experience is the ability to obtain years of wisdom by having a short conversation with more experienced business owners who have “been there and done that.” You benefit by problem-solving and sharing ideas with WOMEN LIKE YOU. You will learn a lot from the panels, keynotes and workshops, but you will have an opportunity to learn even more from the informal interactions you will have during meals, social events and the EPIC adventures you and your new conference buddies will have exploring Miami when the conference is not in session.
I AM INTERESTED IN BECOMING A SPONSOR. WHAT SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES ARE AVAILABLE?
Sasha Revolus is our Director of Brand Partnerships. Sasha can send you a sponsorship deck and talk about a sponsorship package to meet your goals. Her email is LinkUp@FlourishMediaConference.com
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We get this question often ^.^. Wear whatever is comfortable. For those who would like more specific guidance- Wear Your Brand! Whether you are a service professional, product creator or hobbyist, you have a “brand.” We do not have a dress code, however we do advise you to bring a sweater or a wrap because conference venues are notoriously cold. If you are still not sure, dress to impress. Some people wear heels and jeans while a few wear full business suits. We are a diverse group brought together by passion for growth - not our choices in fashion.
I’VE NEVER BEEN TO THE CONFERENCE BEFORE. ARE THE PEOPLE FRIENDLY?
We spend a great deal of time interacting through social media, many entrepreneurs are the only productive dreamers in their family, workplace or social circle. So when business owners have a chance to be around other people who “get it” or interact in-person with people they’ve been engaging with online for years, they are happy! People pay registration fees, purchase plane tickets and make hotel reservations because they want to meet and interact with new and old friends and colleagues.
