Grace Lanni: “How Authentic Personal Branding Led to a COVID Gift”
Grace is an Executive Producer from Austin, Texas. She is currently working on her new docuseries "4 Days to Save the World".


About this event

Grace is an Executive Producer from Austin, Texas. Her current project is a cinematic docuseries ‘4 Days to Save the World’ premiering on Amazon, Apple, and more Labor Day ’21. She continually stretches the cutting edge of personal/professional branding via television, radio and social. Originally trained as a Bio/Electrical engineer, Grace’s first CEO venture was an online software solution. One of only two women to be venture funded at the multi-million-dollar level in Austin in 2000, Grace was featured in the Austin Business Journal, on KEYE, and won the KPMG Stand-Out Startup Award. Today, she is focused on the intersection of entrepreneurship and television harmonizing her producer life. Jan, Feb, and March ’20 were banner months for Grace’s 21-year-old firm, ‘All About That Brand’. Then, COVID happened. On 4/15, she made a decision to start something new – and was unsure exactly what that might be. The campaign she was running on LinkedIn captured the attention of a producer on a television show. The entertainment industry was an unknown, and the participants in the production were entrepreneurs ready to solve a social problem. Join Grace to learn about her journey from Associate to Executive Producer in 12 months. This talk is for you if: 1) You’re not sure about how to approach social media and your career. 2) You want to start something new, but you’re not sure where to start. 3) Television is a medium you are curious about.

Leo Ramirez, Jr.: “Corporate Social Justice: The Next Chapter of CSR”
Leo is co-founder and CEO of Encast, which connects people by revolutionizing how relationships are built around common ground.


About this event

Encast boosts culture, brand, and connection by bringing organizations closer to their most important asset: people. Encast is the world’s first transaction-free donation platform for causes. 100% of every donation goes to charity. A single tax receipt at year end makes it convenient to give securely: anytime, anywhere. Corporate social responsibility often evolves when the world goes through a philosophical shift. The current environment surrounding COVID-19, the economic recession, and most recently, global civil unrest, makes one thing clear: we are entering the age of corporate social justice, as Lily Zheng says in the Harvard Business Review. Zheng defines Corporate Social Justice as a reframing of CSR that centers any initiative or program on measurable, lived experiences of groups harmed and disadvantaged by society. In this talk by Leo Ramirez Jr., you will learn: -Identify the disadvantaged groups that your company can credibly support -Build programs through channels in the ecosystem surrounding those groups -Articulate how these new initiatives play a role in your broader CSR strategy
