Retail Reinvention: Saving Main Street & the Mall

Retail Reinvention: Saving Main Street & the Mall

Wed., Sept. 20, 2017
Cabrillo Pavillion Arts Center
Santa Barbara, CA

Join us on Wednesday, September 20 as this program will focus on retail, and especially bricks and mortar, with an emphasis on business, growth, technology and entrepreneurship. The downturn in physical retail is a national phenomenon with clear local impact. This event is about the solutions, not about the problems.

We will be featuring a diverse group of speakers with a track record of success, and with vision. They will share their experiences, ups and downs, and what contributions they have made to reinvent or revolutionize the retail industry in Southern California.



Women in the C-Suite

Mountains of data have shown that the presence of women on founding teams or in the C-Suite is correlated with increased financial performance. Why are these companies thriving? What is unique about women’s approach to governing boards that leads to business growth? What can we learn to further support emerging women business leaders in our lives whether they be our co-workers, wives, sisters, daughters or ourselves? On April 19, we had another full house with a stellar panel of successful women that continued an interactive discussion through the evening filled with stories of motivation and tips for both women and men.
