About our speakers:
Kari Switala lives in Farmington with her husband, Kevin; her sons, Max & Sam; and her furry-legged sons, Steve & Murphy. She is a chief creative officer at Wild Fig Marketing, a boutique marketing firm that specializes in business and marketing automation, email marketing and website design. When she's not writing or working, you'll likely find her at her cabin in northern MN, where she loves paddleboading; boating with all her boys; and reading books while relaxing on the dock with a glass of chardonnay. She is wildly passionate about helping others tell their stories, so they can better connect and cultivate more meaningful business relationships. She does this in two main ways; through her new book, "Living with the Lid Up" and through public speaking.
We're super excited to share this special offer from this Friday's Speaker! In addition to being the Chief Creative Officer at Wild Fig Marketing, Kari is also a published author. Her book, "Living with the Lid Up" is a collection of hilarious and humbling stories designed to show business professionals how sharing their personal stories can help them connect and cultivate relationships with their customers, prospects, and employees too!
Kari has decided to generously offer her book for $10 (normally $14.99) to those of you attending this Friday's event. All you need to do is click the link and submit your pre-payment and Kari will bring a signed copy of her book for you on Friday. You can buy one for yourself and one for a friend too!
