I’m the keynote speaker. The mission of the third annual Kosher Food Blogger Conference is to educate kosher-food bloggers and vendors on how to enhance the value of their blogs and overall brands through best practices, sponsorships, technology and partnerships. The Kosher Food Blogger Conference brings together well-recognized food bloggers and professionals and makes them accessible to conference participants. Speakers are chosen for the experience and innovative thinking that they bring to the kosher-food-blogging community. The Conference programming is built around the topics that are crucial for building an education on social media, photography, writing, branding, marketing and technology in our current environment.
I’m excited to be presenting a session with Coryanne Ettiene.

Next, brainstorm with your peers over a light lunch and clarify your most important next step. Come away with actionable ideas and a support system for achieving your goals.

I’m organizing a 4-hour workshop, “How to Use Crowdfunding to Start, Grow or Market Your Food Business,” part of the Roger Smith Food Tech Conference. Crowdfunding is not easy, but it works, especially for food-related projects. In this workshop, you will get a deep understanding of how to run a successful campaign, get an overview of what not to do, understand the mindset needed, get the chance to discuss your campaign ideas and get your questions answered.
I’ll be telling my latest story, “The Magic Cookie Lady Meets Frankencake,” along with other storytellers J.D. Cerna, Marla Schultz, Michael Sutton, James Judd and Caren Chesler.
