Attention local business leaders, managers, and entrepreneurs: You still have the opportunity to be inspired and connect with the South King, Pierce, and Thurston County business communities through this year’s South Sound Business Summit to be held online May 5.

Created in 2015, the South Sound Business Summit is a must-attend event for business leaders, managers, and entrepreneurs looking to make the most of their business, employees, and profitability. Businesses with large or small revenue are invited to attend.

To help ensure the health and safety of all attendees amid the COVID-19 crisis, tickets were converted to access the online event. Registered attendees will receive login instructions and a password prior to the event. Tickets are $35 each.

Speakers for this year’s event include:

Mike Michalowicz — the entrepreneur behind three multi-million dollar companies and the author of Profit First, The Pumpkin Plan, and what BusinessWeek deemed the entrepreneur’s cult classic, The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur.

Elisa Hays — an inspirational speaker, consultant, and author. Her presentation titled “A Crash Course in Leadership” will help you transform your life. By applying the lessons, you will turn weakened staff into star performers, and refashion your organization into a connected community.

Barry Long — a speaker and president of Talk and Roll. During his presentation, titled “Choosing the Positive Path to getting where you want to go,” Long will share how embracing the power of asking for help, having fun, and ones own attitude will help everyone see they have the ability to achieve anything they want and truly enjoy life.
