Ruth Furman, principal at ImageWords Communications, will discuss self-promotion for businesses during the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) of Southern Nevada’s 2019 speaker series.
Furman will deliver “Sharing the Love through Self-Expression: Simple Tips for Shameless Self-Promotion,” from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Feb. 13 at the Associated Builders & Contractors’ Nevada office, 5070 Arville St., Suite 4 in Las Vegas.
Furman, who has three decades in the marketing and communications business, will work to help business owners overcome one of their biggest challenges — celebrating their wins and maximizing their results.
Her session will focus on finding the best way to “toot your own horn.”
Furman said some of the routine components of running a business — signing a new contract, moving to a new location or hiring a new executive — can be easy ways to help grow an overall brand.
“Many business owners I know seem to feel shy or uncomfortable sharing news and wins,” Furman says. “But deliberate self-promotion and brand layering leads to amazing results. I’m also a huge fan of authenticity. It’s OK to be real.”
In this interactive workshop, speakers will share inspiring case studies on seizing opportunities to shine, promoting business wins inexpensively and mastering the magic of brand layering.
Attendees will leave the conversation with tips they can implement immediately and strategies to keep them relevant.
The event is free for NAWBO Southern Nevada members and $20 plus tax ($2.85) for nonmembers.
Divine Events, a locally owned, woman-owned business, will provide breakfast.
