USA Today have shared the news that Nicole Richie will be the keynote speaker for the next Create & Cultivate roaming conferences. They have been held all over the US, including LA, Portland and Dallas and have featured a wide variety of guests including Jessica Alba and Rachel Zoe who are close friends of Nicole. Find out more information below!
In its fourth year, Create + Cultivate has become a network for women looking to forge a career in digital entrepreneurship.
Nicole Richie will be the keynote speaker for the next installment of the roaming conferences, which have been held everywhere from L.A. to Portland and Dallas. Richie will be joined by Ayesha Curry, Whitney Port, Sarah Michelle Gellar and more than 50 other speakers with backgrounds in blogging, startups and marketing in Atlanta on Oct. 15.
Past speakers, including Rachel Zoe, Chelsea Handler and Jessica Alba, have touched on everything from the difficulties of starting a business, to juggling family life and tips to inspire creativity. They’ve also offered practical advice that’s hard to find if you don’t have a willing mentor, like how to be a more effective manager: “I really believe in not micromanaging people. I think if you hire talented people, you have to just let them be,” Zoe said at a past event.
Though the focus is primarily on the one-day physical conference, the organization, led by blogger-turned-CEO and conference founder Jaclyn Johnson, spreads the lessons digitally throughout the rest of the year. The blog has become a great resource, with a similar blend of practical technology updates (new Snapchat features and tricks for using LinkedIn) to advice on being healthy at work and how to recover from mistakes.
Tickets are $300 for the day, including meals, and are on sale now. If you can’t attend in person, we’ve compiled some of the best advice from Chelsea Handler’s keynote along with videos of past discussions below.
