This week, our salon owner, Lauren, heads to Yelp headquarters in downtown San Francisco. Yelp has an annual event called Coast To Coast in which the company hosts 100 of the best businesses using the review platform to build their organizations.
The event celebrates the achievements of this select group and arms them with best practices to help them continue to grow. Yelp also provides a platform for attendees to network and dialogue with their peers, while internal teams gain valuable insight in order to improve the experience business leaders have on Yelp. The 100 attendees represent a wide range of businesses, different levels of experience, and years in business, but the one thing they all have in common is their desire to build a robust business in their local markets.
A select few of these business owners serve on Yelp’s Small Business Advisor’s Alliance. This exclusive group, many of whom attended Coast-To-Coast 2015, is comprised of critical thinkers who effectively use today’s technology to grow their business. They’ll present on an array of topics and guide conversations in small breakouts. Lauren is honored to serve in this group!
The event takes place Monday, November 14th through Wednesday, November 16th. On Tuesday, Lauren will be presenting to the group along with four of her Alliance Advisor colleagues. Yelp is dubbing this group “The Fabulous Five”. The panel will be speaking on the topic of “how to continue to build and survive when catastrophe hits”. All small business owners know that things are not always sunshine and roses when running a company and this experienced group will address this topic and share advice with the rest of the attendees. The discussion will be live streamed via Yelp’s Facebook page on Tuesday!
So, wish Lauren luck and tune in to Facebook to hear a little bit about what keeps our team at the top of our game.[/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][ssboost][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
