First Women In Business Summit to Feature Familiar Faces

Covington businesswoman Donna Salyers remembers well the infancy of her successful and now international Fabulous-Furs.

It was 20 years ago and she attended an event for women entrepreneurs and found that in some ways she’d gotten the cart before the horse.

It was in the early nineties, “when Fabulous-Furs was just a toddler,” she said. Salyers recalls “how profound it was to learn I should have put together a business plan – Whew!” The fabulously successful female entrepreneur is now a featured speaker at the inaugural day-long Women’s Small Business Summit in Erlanger at Receptions Inc. on Sept. 26. It begins at 8 a.m.

The event is sponsored by the Women’s Business Center of Kentucky in Louisville and Heritage Bank in partnership with Community Ventures Corp. and the U.S. Small Business Administration.
 
There will be small business workshops, career counseling, guest speakers, business lenders, a power luncheon and multiple networking opportunities. The plan is for attendees to learn the best practices and strategies for small business leaders. Topics include marketing trends, data management tips, bookkeeping strategies, success stories and more.
 
In addition to Salyers, other speakers will be Crystal Kendrick, president and owner of The Voice of Your Customer; Rebecca Volpe, director of the Northern Kentucky University Small Business Development Center; and Debbie Simpson, president of Multi-Craft and chairperson of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
 
The cost is $25 and registration can be completed online by clicking here.
