Sugar Business Forum Breakfast

Whether you already have a “sweet” business of your own or are just thinking of starting one, join us for this delicious and informative breakfast even. 

Roxanne Roberts

"Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me"

Our guest speaker for the inaugural Sugar Business Forum Breakfast will be Roxanne Roberts, longtime Washington Post columnist and regular panelist on the NPR radio news quiz “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me…”. The focus of her presentation will be Cake in the News, both in current events and in suggested ways to help you interact with the media and have your OWN creations featured in the news, for all the RIGHT reasons.

Roxanne brings a unique perspective to the conversation as both a veteran journalist and as someone who also dabbles in the Sugar Arts. Not only is Roxanne a member of the Cake and Sugar Artists of Northern Virginia (CASANOVA), she is also a member of ICES.

So, whether you are a long-established business owner, a part time Cake Entrepreneur or just THINKING about turning your love of the Sugar Arts into a business, all are welcome to join us for breakfast and informative conversation at the Sugar Business Forum Breakfast on Saturday morning, during the ICES 2018 Convention and Show in Cincinnati, OH.
