Consultants who seek to grow their business and achieve greater success in today’s rapidly changing business environment need to creatively use a host of new tools and techniques. Join us on January 12, 2018 at The Lakes Golf Course in El Segundo, for an interactive presentation on the “Tools Consultants Can Use to Grow Their Business and Achieve Greater Success in Today’s Changing Market” by Ryder Todd Smith, president of Tripepi Smith Marketing / Technology / Public Affairs.

Born in the Internet age, Tripepi Smith operates in a virtual office environment. No single set of walls contains this team. Being virtual allows the firm to engage the right talent at the right time, and it enables it to operate more efficiently to save money for clients.

Today, Tripepi Smith is a growing firm that provides consulting services in the areas of marketing, technology and public affairs. Combining many years of experience in local government, technology and the marketing fields, Tripepi Smith offers a unique blend of skills to help clients achieve their goals. The Tripepi Smith team helps clients with outreach campaigns, video production, content writing, messaging, graphic work, technology infrastructure and websites. The firm also offers staff training in how business relationships that often begin in-person often transition to written exchanges can be enhanced by expressing ideas clearly and concisely in writing.

Consultants who attend this session will:

  • Learn to plan for and measure success in new and growing consulting businesses;
  • Learn how to develop and protect your brand’s online reputation;
  • Understand how to best communicate with clients, customers, employees, local communities, shareholders, trade associations, business groups, and the media.

Join us at 7 AM for networking with other consultants. Breakfast and introductions generally starts at 7:30 AM, with our program from 7:45-9 AM.

Please note: This is a “hybrid” session, with our speaker presenting in the meeting room and the session captured live via video conferencing. The hybrid format allows consultants to join us virtually from anywhere in the world. Attendees who join us via Zoom will have an opportunity to introduce themselves and participate in the discussion.
