The Southern C Summit

This April, I'm excited to be heading east again to Charleston, South Carolina for the Southern C 2015 Summit. It's a conference for Southern creatives that includes a bevy of expert panel discussions on branding, marketing, monetizing, social media and more. They fill up the three days with so many interesting people and topics, that it's impossible not to walk away enlightened and inspired...

Whitney Long and Cheri Leavy are the creative minds behind it all. I loved meeting these two last year- they're kind, giving, smart and savvy, which is essential when creating an event such as this. I personally love their focus on the South. As they shared, "The South is full of so much talent, creativity and innovation. We feel it is important to celebrate and connect Southern makers and creatives to build up our shared economy and culture." 

Their list of speakers is impressive, including Robert Leleux, Editor-in-Chief of Domino magazine and East Coast Producer and Editor of Better Homes and Gardens, Eddie Ross. Also present will be Amy Hughes, Susan Hable and Rinne Allen (to discuss book publishing) as well as Y'allsome founder Craig Evans and Proud Mary founder, Harper Poe to help us gain a better understanding of cause marketing and how to integrate it into our existing businesses. The list goes on...

To make it even sweeter, the conference is being held in downtown Charleston. Cheri and Whitney work hard to create an impressive lineup of speakers to share their insights and wisdom, but they also work equally hard to offer breaks througout the day and evening that showcase the best local food and drink. There is ample time to network and socialize, which is incredibly valuable for any Southern creative. If you'd like to partake, it's best to sign up soon as their early bird discount ends January 31 (that would be tomorrow). I hope you sign up and I hope to see y'all there...
