VVC Scholarship Applications + Speaker Series #5: Michelle Lee, Creative Professional

Posted on Updated on

Happy Tuesday, vegan-land! We’re bringing you two conference news updates today: the opening of two scholarship Michelle Lee VVC speakersspots (one international! one domestic!) for our conference this May, and the latest 2015 speaker interview. The Vida Vegan Con Speaker Series continues with another special Canadian vegan, the charming Michelle Lee of Broadview Design and Vegan Prom Vancouver.

As a creative professional based out of Vancouver, B.C. and two-time Vida Vegan Con attendee (not to mention cat and vegan food enthusiast), she knows exactly what our third conference lineup needs. Michelle is presenting on “Branding for Bloggers“, which will tackle design, branding, logos, typography, consistency and pretty much any and everything both independent creative professionals and bloggers alike should really sorta kinda, well, definitely know.

Vida Vegan Con Speaker Series: 

Michelle Lee, Creative Professional

This interview was recorded on Saturday, March 7, 2015 Hatch Innovation in Portland, OR and Vancouver, B.C. 

Heads up: For whatever reason, this video does have a few technical difficulties – our apologies! It remains swell and insightful.

Afterwards, head over to Google Plus, where you can add Vida Vegan to your circles, and make sure you hear first about the upcoming exclusive talks in our ongoing Vida Vegan Speaker Series. And for goodness sake, make sure you turn notifications off so you don’t get emailed every day.

Catch Michele at Vida Vegan Con May 29-31st in Austin, TX! You can follow her on Instagram & Twitter as @food.n.catz

Looking for our full 2015 VVC Speaker Lineup? You got it.

Tickets to both events during this three-day super vegan weekend are available here. See you in May!

Vida Vegan Tech Seminar

Posted on Updated on

Hot on the heels of 2013 Con registration, we have more news for you!

It’s the Vida Vegan Seminar Series. These are going to be one-day seminars focusing on a single topic, with a small classroom and instructors prepared to make sure you leave for the day with a nice little skill set. We’ll space them out (between the conferences) and try to travel around a bit with them.

Our first seminar is set to take place this fall—Saturday, November 3, at the gorgeous Seattle Public Library, to be exact—and we’ll be diving into the technical aspects of Internet veganism: blogging and social media. At the end of the day, you will be armed with skills and resources to build a more effective online presence.

Classes will run one at a time, with lunch and snack breaks, and are set to include (we’re locking down our instructors and their specialties now):

  • Shooting & Sharing Video
  • Podcasting on a Budget
  • Strategic Social Media & Outreach
  • Design Basics & Tools
  • Blog Building, Coding & Hosting

We are limiting class size to 50 attendees so everyone gets ample Q&A time. Registration will open Friday, July 20, and is nonrefundable, no exceptions.

Interested? All the info is on the Tech Seminar page, which we’ll be updating as details are confirmed.
