Please join us for two speakers over coffee (and optional breakfast) at Arterra Restaurant in Del Mar. ## "Business & the Law in 2018" ## Business and employment law attorney Katharine Tremblay Beck will be addressing important laws for business owners, including recent changes in California employment laws. Small business owners with employees will want to meet Katharine and learn about laws (including some new changes) to be keenly aware of affecting the employment relationship. Katharine's presentation will provide valuable information for small business owners to avoid the often complicated legal business landscape. Katharine's full list of topics includes: - Entity Formation and Management - Copyright, Trademark and Confidential Information - Insurance Concerns - Employment Practices and Policies - Exit Strategy Come meet Katharine and bring your questions on the above topics. ## "Get 'ON' Your Biz!" ## Andy Kemal of INFIX will present on the number one performance issue for most small businesses: owner accountability! Business owners typically know what they "should" be doing - but frequently are not able to focus on their highest priorities.... because they have day-to-day activities in running their business that can create some significant challenges. This, ends up being the "working 'IN' your business" situation, when we probably know the importance of working "ON" our business. Andy will address some valuable methods to employ to "Get 'ON' Your Biz". How through defining a clear vision, strategy, goals, and method to track accountability, one can start to climb ON TOP of their business and find time for the things one "should" be doing to scale and grow the business for greater profits and longevity. Come meet Andy and bring your questions on the above topics. ## Speaker bios: ## Katharine Tremblay Beck is a graduate of University of San Diego School of Law and a practicing attorney with extensive experience in litigating both business and employment law issues. Her law firm is Tremblay Beck Law. Andy Kemal has been coaching small businesses since 2011.

What we're about

Public Group

Refresh San Diego is intended to be a resource that brings together those in the San Diego area who are interested in web development, new technology, and business startups - and who are working to refresh the creative, technical, and professional Internet culture. Everyone interested in "refreshing" the Internet is welcome to participate.

This Meetup is part of one of the largest business alliances in San Diego for local entrepreneurs and business people.

For over 10 years we've endeavored to provide networking events, resources and education that are uniquely effective in helping local professionals make new connections, develop important professional relationships, grow their business enterprises, and continually increase their business and personal influence.

The people we surround ourselves with matters, and participation in quality face-to-face opportunities in the community will be personally, and/or professionally life changing. For best results, one actually needs to attend events in-person. ;-)

It's about time to increase Networking ROI.
