1:30PM-2:30PM: Branding & Social Media 101 with Xza Higgins
Whether you are your brand, or your brand needs a facelift, this session will delve into the keys to branding a business or person at any stage.

We will touch on social media, content creation and relaying a consistent image. Much of this session will be Q&A based so come prepared with questions or listen in on what your fellow attendees are curious about.

Xza Higgins is most notably the founder & CEO of MommyCon, and brings a dozen years of branding and identity experience to the table as she previously developed and implemented branding plans for female small businesses in Chicago. Prior to that she worked in the hospitality industry on launching a new hotel brand in the Chicago area.
2:30PM-3:30PM: Toddler Parent Support Group with Niki Hughes
Is your toddler driving you up the wall? Do you desperately need adult interaction? Join us for an hour of chit chat where we can commiserate over the toddlerhood adventure. If you BYOB we won't judge you... really, we will just want to be your friend.

4:30PM-5:30PM: Introduction to Back Wrapping with Alisa DeMarco
Alisa DeMarco is the creator of Tekhni Wovens and is a Certified Babywearing Consultant with the Center for Babywearing Studies. She will be teaching attendees how to back carry using woven wraps. Experience wrapping is required to attend the class. Having a baby at the class is not required, however all babies being back wrapped must be at least six months old. The wearer must have mastered at least one front carry in a woven wrap. This is not a 101 class.

If you are in need of ASL interpretation services or any other accessibility accommodations, please email with your ticket information 60 days prior to the event so we can discuss details with you.
