The Santa Barbara Business Expo is an interactive business convention. The networking event is sponsored by the Women’s Community Business Network and was created to bring together the brightest business minds in the Santa Barbara area.

Attendees of the conference will have the opportunity to network with experienced business experts and collaborate with like-minded people seeking similar goals. The expo will feature eight presenters speaking on various business themed topics ranging from Google to how to be “stress-less.”

“Lorrie Thomas Ross is a Santa Barbara success story. She’s a motivational speaker who has distinguished herself in the growth area of online marketing, while also gaining notoriety on a national stage for her published works and speaking engagements,” said Sandy Goe, founder and chief executive officer of the Women’s Community Business Network. “We are excited to give her a local platform at this inaugural event.”

Her perspective as a thought leader, humorous delivery and value-packed presentations are high in demand as she caters each presentation to the business, niche, skill sets and professional concerns of her attendees.

“I’m delighted to be joined on stage by a distinguished roster of speakers,” Thomas Ross said. “The Santa Barbara Business Expo provides a wonderful opportunity for me to bring insights that I’ve honed in front of audiences around the country to a room full of Santa Barbara professionals.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
