Brand specialist to speak

Lakes Area Professional Women will host a brand specialist at a talk open to the public from 4-6 p.m. Monday, March 12, in the Grand Arbor Community Room, 4403 Pioneer Road SE in Alexandria.

Kelly Lucente has worked with national brands such as RE/MAX, Pearle Vision and Rollerblade, the women's business group said, as well as on the 1992 Super Bowl halftime show.

This candid workshop will discuss how personal brands are perceived and why that's important, and show how to build a personal brand for the business world and for one's personal life.

The cost is $30 for members and $35 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased at or at 218 Third Ave. E., Suite 100 in Alexandria. For more information, call 320-766-5222.
