Louisville Local Business Expo
We have all become more aware of the reasons to buy local – and they apply just as much to our business purchases as our personal ones. This event will give attendees the chance to ‘walk the talk’ and find quality, local vendors for their business purchases. After all, a market shift of just 10% to local independent businesses would retain an additional $416 million in our regional economy, which helps all of our businesses!
We have 65 local businesses represented this year, along with insightful programming and fun giveaways:

TED-Style, 20 minute talks from:
1:30pm - The Storyteller in You
Stories told by excellent communicators create sticky memories in the listener’s brain. They generate imagery that goes beyond normal corporate jargon and take us deeper into our emotions. Madison Cork is a pro at creating great storytellers and will share the simple ways to bring out the storyteller in you!
2:30pm - Turning the Ship Around
3:30pm - Being Your Own Super Fan
Darnell Ferguson, owner of SuperChefs, struggled for much of his life. In this talk, he shares how with the right belief in himself, he overcame trials, tribulations and barriers to become a successful business owner.
As a ‘Louisville original’ independent local firm, we love being part of such a forward-thinking, collaborative, compassionate, and ‘weird’ community. We measure our impact by much more than the numbers, and embrace the opportunity to contribute to the success stories of our great city and the entrepreneurs that make it so.
