Can You Articulate your Awesome?

Most decisions made about you and your opportunities are made in a room that you’re not in. Scary, right? But true. Think about it. So how do you make sure that what people think and say about you – whether you are in the room or not – is the story you want told?

Joanna Bloor guides her audiences through strategies to make sure they are both part of the consideration set and have an impact on what’s being said about us. All this starts with asking the question: What do you want to be known for? And understanding why.

One of the unique and compelling components of Joanna’s presentation is her ability to perform “speed coaching” during her presentations. She draws in an audience member and in a matter of minutes, has crafted a bold and compelling personal value proposition unique to that person. It’s amazing for the participant and educational to watch.

About Our Speaker:

Joanna is here today because of many decisions made in rooms she wasn’t in.

Sometimes she was offered my dream job, sometimes she was shown the door. In each case she noticed, the story about her, and what she was known for, impacted the result. Which made her ask, do you know, or can you influence what’s being said about you in that room? Are you even part of the consideration set for the opportunity? And if so, how?

Joanna Bloor believes you can, and in today’s business world you must. So much so that it inspired her to launch The Amplify Lab to  help people uncover their bold, unique, authentic and compelling Human Value Proposition and help them achieve impact by strategically amplifying their ideology.

Known for being brave, curious Joanna has spent 20+ years working for technology  startups. In leadership roles in companies including OpenTable, CBS Interactive, and Pandora, there she was challenged to develop and implement growth strategies to help them grow from idea to IPO.

Her brave, curious, and authentic approach also helped her tackle a personal problem – losing weight with 3D printing. Sound a little out there? As a tech enthusiast and scalability junkie, she was curious about 3D printing. With a goal in mind to lose weight, 3D LILA was born. The project grew to a series of podcasts in which she interviewed experts and innovators about 3D printing, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and much more, and leading her to speak on TED stage in 2016Learn more about Joanna

Dr. Kristi Funk - Breast Cancer Specialist and Surgeon

The Latest Advances in the Fight Against Breast Cancer

Dr. Kristi Funk is the board-certified surgical breast specialist and the co-founder of the Pink Lotus Breast Center.  She is an expert in minimally-invasive diagnostic and treatment methods for all types of breast disease. She has helped thousands of women through breast cancer treatment, including well-known celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Sheryl Crow, who have turned to her for her expertise.

Former Director of Patient Education at Cedars-Sinai Breast Center, Dr. Funk opened the Pink Lotus Breast Center in March 2009, in the middle of a recession and just three months before giving birth to triplet sons. The Pink Lotus Breast Center fuses state-of-the art screening, diagnosis and treatment with preventive strategies and holistic, compassionate care.

Dr. Funk graduated with distinction from Stanford University in 1991, and received her medical degree from UC Davis School of Medicine. She is also a former Oxford University scholar, and worked as a research assistant at UCLA and Baxter Diagnostics. An outstanding investigator, Dr. Funk patented a surgical device used to increase operating room efficiency, assisted in the development of a method for the rapid detection of cytomegalovirus, and helped design an in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility test. 

Dr. Funk’s published works have appeared in Advanced Therapy of Breast Disease, Surgical Clerkship Manual, Archives of Surgery, the Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery and The Journal of Clinical Microbiology. As a frequent presenter, she has addressed crowds at national and international Breast Cancer conferences, multiple Los Angeles-area hospitals, the Society of Nuclear Medicine, Southwestern Surgical Congress, Pacific Northwest Vascular Society, British Esophageal Group, Seattle Surgical Society, Virginia Mason Medical Center and the American Society for Microbiology, as well as numerous community audiences.

As we approach Breast Cancer Awareness Month, let’s welcome Dr. Funk and learn more about the plan to reduce your cancer risk.  While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

  • Fred's at Barneys Beverly Hills (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Coolhaus co-founders Natasha Case and Freya Esteller started baking cookies, making ice cream, and combining them into "cool houses" in 2008. With mutual backgrounds in the design and real estate fields, they began naming their ice cream sandwiches after architects and architectural movements that inspired them - and eventually decided to take their newfound passion (dubbed "Farchitecture," or Food + Architecture) to their hometown streets in Los Angeles. So after a few days on Craigslist (and some time convincing their families they weren't crazy), they found and bought a beat-up old postal van, trekked out to the world-famous Coachella Valley Music Festival in April 2009 to make their debut.
