Day 2 of our Blogger Xchange XPO weekend was held at redpepper an ad agency in Nashville. It was a full day of learning and fun. Upon arrival, guests were able to enjoy coffee fro White Bison and breakfast from Rush Bowls. They were able to shop from various vendors including: Hello Well Co., Jad'Marie Cosmetics, Denor PR, The Nash Collection, Crafted By Heart, A Mint Macaroon, and CEO.
After Leigh and I officially thanked everyone for coming out and shared more on what to expect, Dr. Lauren Elise Simpson shared her story and wisdom as the keynote speaker. Dr. Lauren is a Nashville Native who has moved to Atlanta, but loves her home of Nashville. She has several business and gives back through different organizations including her non-profit. During her speech she provided tips on how to self care, stay motivated, and how to get out comfort zones. It was the perfect way to get everyone ready to learn from the breakout sessions!
We offered five different sessions throughout the day: Advanced Social Media taught by Jasmine Sweet and Ashley Houston; Branding 202 taught by Ashely Northington; Pro Brand Pitching taught by Tasha Dahl and Katie Soltas; Legal + Fiance taught by Thallen Brassel and Ashely Harlan; and YouTube + Videos taught by Nikki Burdine, Brittany Coleman, and Melissa Emily.
Taziki's Gulch provided lunch that was so delicious! We enjoyed the chicken feast with rice, potatoes and greek salad. For the afternoon snacks Kinimi Kitchen provided Cajun Pop & Cinnamon Pop Corn and Tiff's Treats provided an assortment of cookies that were freshly baked and still warm!
We concluded the day with mingling, more shopping at the vendor booths, and of course photos!!
