Sonora: Business Expo

March 7 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm


“Together We Are the Destination”

A visitor’s experience begins when they park their car and doesn’t end until they get back in and drive to the next destination. Every minute they are in your town influences their experience, and as their host, we need to make sure that they leave with memories that will bring them back again . . . and again. Lani’s presentation will include:

  • Importance of Image
  • Creating a Genuine Relationship
  • Cultivating a Cohesive Experience

Lani Lott – President, L.L. Consulting
