It is no secret that one of my favorite events of the year is The Southern C Summit. I think it is the best conference of its kind and actually the only one I know of that takes the business of being and entrepreneur to such a new and well respected level. The speakers, parties, cocktails and collaborations that arise from the networking are exceptional!

 A desire to attend by previous attendees or alums says it all!  That being said, a very limited number of tickets are NOW on sale. Hop to it!

 I hope to see you there and here are all the details.  

The Southern C Summit cultivates a talented line-up of presenters to provide tips & techniques in the following categories:

Social Media Strategy  •  Branding + Creative Strategy  •  Blogger + Brand Collaborations

Media, PR & Marketing  •  Business Entrepreneurship

Creative Partnerships  •  SEO + E-Commerce

It’s all about access! Our presenters and sponsors are full participants – connecting with you throughout the Summit. With collaboration in mind, The Southern C Summit is limited to 250 attendees.
