It sounds cliche, but to succeed in this biz, it isn’t just what you know, but who you know. Don’t have any great connections as of yet? Fear not! We’ve rounded up some networking masters to show you how it’s done at our “Right Ways to Network” panel, happening during our first-ever conference.
Here’s what to look forward to:
Want to make it big in the fashion-tech sector? Let Alisa Gould-Simon show you the ropes. Having worked as a freelance fashion writer and a digital consultant, Gould-Simon went on to found The Rackit, a full-service fashion brand consulting agency, and co-founded shopping app Pose.
Or, sit down and listen to rewardStyle founder Amber Venz. Her B2B invitation-only affiliate e-commerce platform serves top-tier digital style publishers from around the world (ahem, including us).
We’ve also brought on Lucky magazine contributing editor John Jannuzzi to teach you how to go from intern to employee. Jannuzzi’s not just an editor, he’s a social media wizard–just ask his 25k+ Twitter followers!
And last but certainly not least, you’ll hear from Ruthie Friedlander: Born and raised in Manhattan, she’ll teach you a thing or two about working your way up in the tough world of New York City fashion. She’s gone from building Club Monaco’s content platform, managing online press for Chanel, to currently overseeing all digital aspects of CFDA award-winning The Row as the brand’s Senior Digital Manager.
Join us in New York City–and schmooze to your heart’s desire!–at the Dream Hotel Downtown on Friday, June 21 from 9AM to 4PM and let our panelists teach you how to network your way into the fashion career of your dreams.
