Design influencers raved while hundreds of delegates logged on for several hours of DIConnect programming over three days in early March 2021.  Exactly one year from the close of the last in-person Design Influencers Conference in San Francisco, Esteem Media opened up the first of three broadcasts for influencer marketing presentations, influencer recruitment, networking, and private meetings; a joyous reconnection for the community of luxury design professionals that busy themselves with building influence and followings for meaningful business outcomes. The broadcast surpassed the experiential requirements that Design Influencer Conference organizers demand for this community and they immediately began finalizing the second DIConnect planning for the April 5-6 agenda.

April DIConnect: You and Your Brand

Rachael Bozsik DIConnect speakerDr. Larry Peltz DIConnect Speaker

Keynote speakers are Rachael Bozsik and Dr. Larry Peltz.

The COVID pandemic has created many shifts in the world and in the conditions we face in our lives and businesses. These changes have been at different times destabilizing, illuminating, freeing, and frightening. Dr. Peltz’s talk will focus on how we can use the data of our own experience — in the economic climate, in our clients and in ourselves—as opportunities for learning to relate to stress and difficult emotions, tapping into our creativity and authenticity.

Do you feel like you are your industry’s best-kept secret or lack the personal brand visibility, inbound leads, and high-profile clients you deserve?  Rachael will share insights into creating the time, clarity, and know-how to make that happen.  The talk will address COVID era branding opportunities, niche requirements, brand audits, and other key steps in organizing a profitable branding approach.
