This was a very well planned boot camp, with polished, accomplished speakers. I walked away reenergized and with a wealth of helpful information. Thank you for sharing your expertise!

Kara Blank-Gonzalez Food For Life Instructor

The Vegan Professional Bootcamp was a wonderful kickstarter for marketing my new wellness center. I've already begun applying the lessons I learned in my business and am noticing great results. I highly recommend this bootcamp to all Vegan Professionals whether you're just in the planning phases or have been established for years!

Katelin Mae Petersen Sprout Wellness Center

This event exceeded all my expectations. I didn't know it was possible to cover SO many areas of marketing a vegan business in such a LIMITED amount of time! This was time and funds well spent!

About Vegan Professional Bootcamps

Vegan Professional Bootcamps are designed with the busy vegan professional in mind. They are a series of stand-alone multi-city events that pack a power-load of information into each 5-hour session. Every bootcamp will feature exciting and experienced speakers from the local veg community – people who have successes, tips, tools and tricks to share that will help your business to succeed. There will be information pertinent for everyone from the newbie to the experienced business owner. Average event size is 40-60 participants.

These events are not just about listening – they are all about the interaction! There will be plenty of time to participate in round-table discussions, Q&As, and networking opportunities. We won’t just spout about theory, we will put theory into practice and conduct hands-on sessions on topics such as building your brand, online marketing and putting trends into action. We encourage you to bring your laptop, iPad, iPhone and gadgets, so you will leave the day not only with ideas, but with an actionable plan to implement for your business tomorrow. And when you go back out onto the street? We don’t just toss you to the crowds…all paid attendees will receive access to online support communities on Google+ and LinkedIn.
