Virtual Zoom Meeting |


Life throws us curveballs at the most unexpected moments, with no regard for your business ownership, client base, or personal life. As an entrepreneur, it can be an extremely trying time for your brand, your business, and your team. Unfortunately, there is no handbook for dealing with these moments of grief, and it can be an overwhelming learning curve to endure.

Join José as he discusses his own experience with the life-changing loss of his husband, how grieving initially impacted his business, and how he picked himself back up and returned stronger than ever (and how you can do the same).

1. Stages of grief and how they impact your business, including a more technical approach to what things you need in place to avoid an absence within your brand.
2. Having a plan of action. What strategies to put in place to provide yourself and your business with security in the event of a loss or hardship.
3. What you can do to communicate with your audience and clients, whether it’s sharing the moment as part of your brand/your story or removing it from the public eye for a more private approach.
4. Tips for focusing on growth, support, and the future during emotional turmoil/depression and remaining business-forward as best you can. Finding the balance of growth and knowing it’s okay to grieve, including best practices for self-care.

Open to NACE members and everyone in the catering and events industry, we are offering registration for our virtual meeting at only $10 per person to help make this accessible for everyone.

We will send you the video chat link in advance so you can join the call by 12:30 for a little bit of networking before we get started with Jose's presentation!
