The Association of Bridal Consultants will be holding a special Photography Panel at the 2013 state conference on Tuesday February 5th at 3:15pm. Some of the best photographers and videographers in Southern California will be sharing their knowledge, experience and tips for working as a professional in the wedding industry. Speakers include: Callaway Gable, The Brothers Wright, David Robin Films and Perryfield Films. A variety of informative topics will be covered on the photography panel including photographers expectations when working with a wedding coordinator, tips on getting published, technology and etiquette and what’s trending in the business now. Raphael Connelly, editor and publisher of Modele Weddings magazine will moderate the discussions.
This year’s ABC California State Conference is going to be a very valuable event. The speaker line-up is impressive and includes David Tutera, who will share his knowledge and experience on Monday at his “Dream Bigger” presentation. David will also attend the luncheon and stay for a book signing afterwards.
Rhonda Couchigian, founder of Rayce PR and Marketing will present “Social Media” — managing your business with Social Media. Elise Enloe, MBC, is the ABC Director of Education and will discuss the ABC Designations and Points System. After her presentation you will have many of your questions and concerns answered. Moving up the designation ladder will be that much easier. Barbara Wallace will share her journey and “Secrets” of her successes. Annette Hoegner PBC and Holly Chavez PBC will present a joint effort covering many key topics important to all of us — “Ethics, The importance of a well put together Emergency Kit”.
There will be a round table discussion that will be lead by six LNG Co-Directors – Lora Ward and Kendra Wershing from Sacramento, Heather Holliday from Napa Sonoma area, Maxine Goulding and Tamiko Garner from San Francisco Bay Area and Holly Chavez from the Inland Empire. Rrivre Davies from Rrivre Works Designs will share his knowledge and ideas and Tobey Dodge a “seasoned” ABC member and consultant will present “Insights from the Field for the beginner to the experienced.”
Amy Harrick’s topic is “Back to Basics”. With the social media craze that has transpired the past few years, it seems that most small businesses are having trouble keeping up with it, and constantly feel stressed about it. She would like to talk about “getting back to the basics” and focusing on setting and maintaining a solid business and marketing foundation. And she will incorporate tips on getting published. John Goolsby presents “The Wedding Godfather – Advice You Can’t Refuse”. Percy Sales will share Wish Upon a Wedding with the group and Lynne LaFond DeLuca presents: “Creating Strategic Partnerships within the Special Events/Wedding Industry.”
This conference is a great way to network and build relationships that will benefit you as a person and help to grow your business.
