How does one define their own brand? The answer to that can be found through the expertise of experienced brand strategist, Melanie Spring. Branding is what Melanie does best and with that said, she was put here to get you outside of your box and firmly in your purpose – professionally and personally. Please join us for Salon, an Artful Conversation where the topic will focus on creatives building a brand, becoming a brand, and living that brand.

Melanie runs Branded Confidence as an international speaker and facilitator – bringing her charisma and confidence to humans worldwide. She’s so dedicated to her purpose that she once drove 7,000 in three weeks to find out why great brands work. And she’s here at Artists & Makers Studios 2 in Rockville, MD to make sure you know how to rock your creative world and life!

There will be time for Q & A for attendees and we encourage you to bring snacks to share.

Previous Salon conversations
From early on we had tremendous interest and artists soon were inviting friends to join us for monthly get-togethers. Salon has run non-stop since its inception, and we have had an amazing roster of guest speakers, many of whom are friends and colleagues of ours. They speak for free, and give of their knowledge with a presentation and Q&A session. This simple formula has worked like a charm, providing outstanding content, respecting the speakers and making guests feel welcome in a nurturing space for learning and growth.
