BrandSource will host a variety of special networking events for members during the group’s upcoming convention and expo next week in Las Vegas.
The BrandSource Young Professionals Group, created last year to meet the unique needs of members in their 20s and 30s, will host a noon luncheon on Monday, August 24 featuring guest speaker Kerry Lebensburger, president of sales for Ashley Furniture. Lebensburger will host an interactive session designed to boost problem-solving skills and encourage a group discussion about best sales practices.
The Young Professionals Group will re-assemble the next evening for an action-packed photo scavenger hunt focused on the unique sights of the Las Vegas Strip. Hosted by BrandSource and Electrolux, participants will break into groups and embark on an extensive but fast-paced photo hunt, with each team presenting their findings to the group at the end of the evening. The team competing most challenges in the most creative way will win casino chips totaling $500. An after-party will include a DJ, open bar and late night snacks. Designed for first-time convention goers as well as seasoned guests, these events offer a terrific opportunity for networking and camaraderie with peers.
On Tuesday morning, August 25, BrandSource will host its annual Women In Business breakfast. The event is designed to offer a mutually beneficial forum for women to socialize, brainstorm new ideas, discuss everyday business issues and discover new opportunities for growth. Women in the appliance, electronics and home furnishings industries including finance, marketing, advertising, customer service and sales, are all welcome.
The Women In Business Breakfast guest speaker will be Nancy Friedman, founder and president of Telephone Doctor, an international customer service training company in St. Louis, MO. Friedman has been recognized by the national media as an expert on customer service, communications, sales training and management and has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show and CNN, among others.
In addition to the breakfast, the Women In Business group will sponsor its first-ever Women’s Lounge during the convention. The Lounge will offer a serene environment in which to relax, catch up on work-related issues or have a refreshing beverage. The Lounge will be located in the Sorrento Room at Caesars Palace and will be open Tuesday, August 25 from 12-8 pm and Wednesday, August 26 from 8-2.
