The South Bay Business Leaders Summit was held on Friday March 6th at the Manhattan Beach Marriott. This year the summit focused on branding, marketing, and leadership with some of the most outstanding professionals lending their expertise to the more than 200 attendees. Throughout the course of the event guests had the opportunity to glean key learnings from keynote speakers such as Tracy Cioffi, VP Marketing and Direct Sales for See’s Candies and Andy Cohen, Co-CEO Gensler as well as amazing breakout speakers. During the breakouts participants were able to hear from Daniel Martin of Paoluccis Salling and Martin on influencing others through communication, Kim Salzer on building and enhancing your brand, Peggy Grande of the Quiggle Group on the “Wow” factor and Bill Karz of the Los Angelese Tourism and convention board on digital marketing strategies for success.
Combining the experiences of the speakers with the opportunity to network with the attendees produced an exceptional event. The South Bay Business Leaders’ Summit, now in its second year, has built on the outstanding fifteen year track record of the Women in Business Conference. Over the last two years we have broadcasted live during the event on the South Bay Show. We encourage you to take a moment and hear from some of the attendees involved in the event that day.

Broadcasting live from the south Bay Business Leaders Summit would not have been possible without our great hosts Jackie Balestra and Joe Terry. Just over a year ago we partnered with the two of them to bring a weekly business show to the airwaves.
