Chula Vista Business Conference

Saturday and Sunday

October 23 & 24

Give your business a much-needed energy boost with this two-day hands-on conference with subject experts. Enhance your message with better communication tools, put your brand on point, and find out what to do with social media—finally! 


Each two-hour workshop begins with an overview by a subject expert and then you are given time to practice the ideas and concepts with your colleagues in the workshop. You will leave with tools and reference materials, a network of personal business colleagues, and organizations there when you need help in the future. The workshops fall into three categories; communication, branding, and social media. You can pick and choose between the three tracks.


There is a special track available for business owners wanting to concentrate on increasing their computer skills. Those who enroll in this track will not be able to participate in the other workshops.


There’s no cost to attend, only commitment. Space is limited, register today.

Together we are able to move toward a better business future.

You will be notified if any of these scenarios are activated.

The idea for the business conference came to the organizer, Patricia Maxwell, after noticing how many small businesses in Chula Vista and in her own neighborhood near Third Avenue, had permanently closed their doors this past year due to COVID. She has a consulting business and wants to shake off the inertia by the seeming year of inaction obscured by perpetual doomsday messages and Zoom meetings. Like other business owners and community members, she wonders what’s next and if the wardrobe of the future includes sweatpants. This is when she decided to put together this business conference. The big idea is to reconnect, retool, and relaunch—and to do it even better than before. The phoenix from the ashes.
