nawbo-2016Sedona AZ (September 10, 2016) – The Red Rock Business Summit 2016, is a daylong event focused on providing aspiring and established entrepreneurs with meaningful tools and resources that they need to develop and grow their businesses. It is being held Friday, November 4, 2016 in the Vista Hall at The Collective Sedona in the Village of Oak Creek, Sedona.

The event hosted by the NAWBO Sedona Verde Valley Chapter, Professional Women’s Group of Northern Arizona and the eWomenNetwork.com, is open to the public. It was developed through a collaborative effort to engage with and foster the entire business community of the Verde Valley.

“Our vision for the event is to develop a “Toolkit for Success” for new and established business owner to launch or re-engineer their business, “commented Tamara Middleton, President of the NAWBO Sedona Verde Valley Chapter. “This program is designed to empower the attendee to develop strategies to build good connections, a concise business plan, understand their finances, and construct a marketing strategy with focused sales goals designed for customer retention. We are all very excited to bring this to our community.”

The event includes four general sessions covering the topics of networking and building connections (both Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumer (B2C)), creating a business plan, understanding financial statements, marketing and sales. There will be a “Power” working luncheon where attendees will be introduced to professionals that will share their best practices and why it is important you have someone in their role as a mentor in your corner. The panel includes an accountant, attorney, payroll and benefits specialist, money manager, banker and insurance advisor. Attendees can ask questions during the working lunch. Finally, the program will end with a B2B Networking and Vendor Fair where attendees can meet with other participants, the speakers and exhibitors to learn what resources are available for their firms.

  1. GOOD NEWS says:

    A logical and better way to approach the subject sponsored by an authorized group to represent the entire Verde Valley (including Sedona). This should shame City of Sedona, council members and staff for wasting municipal tax dollars to support competitive regional establishments. Time to get rid of the ill conceived “Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau” (or whatever name they tacked on to cover their tails). Take heed. Pay attention.

  2. Sarah W. says:

    How much is anyone willing to wager that the CEO of C of C (Jennifer Wesselhoff) as well as the Chairman of the Sedona Lodging Council (Steven Segner) will show up with bells on in order to grand stand? They always do. Every thing in this area generally turns out to be about them. Don’t believe it? Watch a Sedona Council meeting.
