The conference, which will feature keynote speakers, a panel discussion, and speed networking, is designed to train entrepreneurs to successfully pivot through challenges and grow regardless of the obstacles they may face.
“We are living in unusual times and entrepreneurs have been challenged to figure out how to adjust to the many changes that we have experienced over the last year,” says ZaLonya Allen, president and CEO of the National Entrepreneurs Association. “This event will provide additional tools and resources to help entrepreneurs become and remain more stable especially in times of crisis.”

Her topic will be “The Pivot Mindset,” which will focus on how entrepreneurs can make necessary changes when circumstances shift.
