Influence OKC Internet Marketing Lunch ‘n Learn

influence-lunch-and-learn-3Anna sponsors a monthly lunch networking event for business owners every first Wednesday at lunch time in the Plaza District of Oklahoma City.

Influence OKC (formerly Influence & Brown Bag) is a monthly lunch & learn + networking meetup for business owners in Oklahoma City who are interested in expanding their knowledge of digital marketing while expanding their personal network.

I founded this event for a few reasons:

  1. To have a networking event that also helps business owners with digital marketing for their small businesses for FREE.
  2. To meet other business owners in the city without having an event that extends the workday with either an early morning meeting or an event after work is finished for the day.
  3. To offer a more intimate networking opportunity for those business owners who prefer a smaller group to a throng of people.
  4. To host an event in the thriving and growing Plaza District, and especially at the unique and new venue, The Barn.

influence-lunch-and-learn-1If you:

  • Are a small business owner looking to get more customers
  • Are looking for additional opportunities to network with other business owners in your community
  • Want to expand your knowledge of online marketing to grow your business
  • Want to meet fellow entrepreneurs at a time that doesn’t extend your workday

Then this meetup is perfect for you.

Here’s what attendees have said about this event: 

I have been attending this meetup the past several months. The networking is always fun and productive. The sponsored meal is always exceptional and usually comes from a local neighboring restaurant. But of course the real reason for attending is to be involved with Anna and to sit under her teaching for a fast paced, high energy, marketing seminar. You won’t find anything like this in the metro area that I’m aware of.

Anna always has much to offer and is generous with what she knows. Depth of knowledge, depth of experience and high energy are Anna’s strong points.

Brett Dickerson

I am going to be opening a healthy pizza restaurant with my sisters in a couple of months and Anna has already taught me a lot about using social media to get our name out there.She is informative and she is passionate and genuinely interested in helping people. I look forward to her meetings every month.

Traci Stone

I define success as having a plan to accomplish a goal, and then making it happen. As a photographer, specifically a commercial product and real estate and  photographer, I went to the Influence & Brown Bag meeting with the hopes to meet some real estate agents as well as finding other potential contacts for my business. What I came away with six very good contacts including three real estate agents, a job scheduled later that same day and another, larger job, scheduled in the near future.  Then, when you add to that, a wonderful topic talk, great conversations, and really good food. That’s more than a success, that’s a win! Thank you Anna, I will be back!

Thomas Testi

My sister and I started attending Anna’s monthly “Influence and Brown Bag” meetings last month, she is a wonderful speaker and gives great information with a sweet smile and spirit. We really enjoy being a part of such a great group! Thanks Anna!!
