Lunch & Learn: Ethical Capitalism? Compassionate Consumerism and Showing Up in the (Much Needed!) Age of Call Out Culture
June 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
We will touch on engaging an audience honestly on social media, selling things to people without taking advantage of them, the difference between impact making and value signaling, the trials, tribulations and joys of learning how to align a team on a shared vision and values, saying the right thing at the right time to your customer base—but first and foremost, I would love to know where everyone’s at on their journey and leave room for conversation and connection.
Let’s leave with a shared language around the difference between saying whatever is on your mind and deliberate, intentional, thoughtful, radical candor.
Who Should Attend?
Small business owners, big business owners, anyone in the D2C consumer brand space, social media managers, influencers interested in affecting social change, and any Asheville humans looking to engage in honest conversation about capitalism, consumerism, community building, equity, and looking for creative solutions for how they might (or might not—gotta take all options into consideration) coexist.
Connie Matisse is the Co-Founder, Chief Creative Officer and Chief Marketing Officer at East Fork, a socially conscious, direct to consumer manufacturer and seller of ceramic dinnerware, based here in Asheville. She studied English and Peace and Conflict Studies at UC Berkeley and had no plan or interest in selling things or running a business until she started doing it. She lives with her husband and business partner, Alex Matisse, and their two young daughters, Lucia and Vita, in North Asheville.
The lunch & learn is free and open to the public, with registration required. Lunch is not provided, but you are welcome to bring your own.
