For me, one of the best events at 2016 Tucson was the Fireside Chat at JCK Tucson. It featured Todd Reed & Sarah Graham answering questions from Victoria Gomelsky and was standing room only!
I have to take my hat off to JCK's planners - this pairing was brilliant. Both Todd & Sarah have experience with designing and marketing a unique look and a style that was their's alone (Todd - Raw Diamonds; Sarah - Blackened Gold) and I wish they had discussed that process more.
So, this year JCK is offering three Fireside Chats....
Learn and be inspired through these can't-miss informal talks that offer insight into the inspiring careers of these industry icons.
All chats will take place in the Arizona Ballroom at the Marriott Star Pass.
