We are thrilled to partner with a range of amazing speakers for our Be Sage Conference this August. When we sat down to set our curriculum for Be Sage, we asked ourselves: “What are the challenges that experienced business owners have in the wedding industry?” We came up with a list of questions and found the best people to speak on these topics.
How do I franchise my business?
How do I license a service or product?
Introducing: Betsy Butwin, Attorney with Bernick Lifson, PA
Betsy works with clients in the wedding, music, and creative industries. She helps entrepreneurs launch their businesses, draft and negotiate contracts, and manage their intellectual property. She also heads Friedman Iverson’s estate planning practice. She teaches intellectual property and contracts at the Institute of Production and Recording.
3 How To’s you’ll gain from Betsy:
1) How to manage and make the most out of your business’ intellectual property
2) How to navigate and negotiate licensing opportunities; how to legally protect yourself in a licensing relationship
3) How franchises work and what are the legal requirements
We feel pretty strongly about partnering with companies and individuals that mirror and augment our own core values. Here are 3 core values that are fundamental to Betsy and how she does business:
1) Treat clients and co-workers with respect and integrity
2) Do great work
3) Help people pursue their passions
We hope you’ll join us this August!
BE SMART. BE BRIGHT. BE SAGE.
Ticket sales are open for Be Sage Conference.
Here’s a little refresher if you missed our post last month about our new conference:
We want you to have a deeper business strategy that will take your business to the next level. This isn’t a business theory conference. And, while you will certainly be inspired, we aim to prepare you with actual tools to use in your business (not just a hope and dream.)
