Members and guests of the NAPW Los Angeles, CA Local Chapter met for a breakfast networking meeting on October 10th. Chapter member and Branding and Productivity Coach Ruth Klein, this month’s guest speaker, shared the latest industry tips with members and guests through her informative presentation, ‘Successful Marketing Strategies for Your Business.’ More than 20 members and guests attended the October breakfast networking event.

NAPW Los Angeles Chapter President Ruth Garcia-Corrales took the floor and warmly welcomed the attendees to the monthly meeting. She invited everyone to take a few minutes to introduce themselves to the crowd and talk about their careers, professional goals, interests, etc.

“The room was filled with professional women from a variety of industries and professions, which allowed for a lively and stimulating networking session,” said the Chapter President. “They were also the perfect audience for our guest speaker, Ruth Klein, who is an expert in branding and marketing.”

Ruth Klein is a Branding and Productivity Coach with her company, The Marketing Time Source. Her presentation ‘Successful Marketing Strategies for Your Business’ was the topic for the meeting. She emphasized to members and guests that each brand should reflect their individual essence. Branding is an active and conscience process requiring credibility and a following.

“If your brand is able to portray your essence, it will allow potential clients to immediately connect to your service/product,” she told the crowd.

After she thanked Ms. Klein, Chapter President Ruth Garcia-Corrales made the announcement that Chapter members and guests had been invited by member Felicia Gutierrez to a networking social event on Tuesday, October 23rd. The event will be held at one of the TOUS stores (in Century City) and is free to all attendees.
