Chrissy Watson, an IP litigation attorney with Carr & Ferrell LLP, social media strategist, blogger, and “mompreneur”, will be speaking at the 2nd annual BlogHer PRO conference. Watson will be speaking on "Partnerships: Understanding Typical Legal Terms and Arming Yourself for Contract Negotiations". She will offer entrepreneurs and professionally-minded bloggers with strategic skills for growing their businesses and protecting their brands.
Taking place October 22-23, 2013 at the Hotel Sofitel in Silicon Valley, the BlogHer PRO conference will be focused on educating online entrepreneurs and influencers on how to take their business, marketing, and technical skills to the next level.
“I’m thrilled for this opportunity to support fellow bloggers and entrepreneurs in successfully building their brands and businesses,” says Watson. “Although it can be one of the most intimidating parts of growing a business, understanding how to effectively enter and manage partnerships is key to a company’s success, and I’m looking forward to empowering BlogHer’s community by demystifying this essential piece of the process.”
Most recently Chrissy was a speaker at Bloggy Con ‘13 in Ohio where she presented “Truth in Blogging: It’s the Law,” a seminar detailing bloggers’ legal and ethical disclosure obligations under the FTC’s updated guidelines and advertising laws. Chrissy continues her speaking engagements in January when she is scheduled to participate on the MomTrepreneurs 101 MommyTech Summit panel at 2014 International CES, the world’s leading innovation event.
