Montecito Bank & Trust’s Upcoming B2B Series

Montecito Bank & Trust’s Fall B2B Education Series Focuses on Innovation and Leadership

Santa Barbara, Calif. – For the fourth consecutive year, Montecito Bank & Trust is presenting its business education series designed for local business owners, business managers and nonprofit executives. Janet A. Garufis, President and CEO said, “As a local community bank, we are proud to provide education opportunities like this that are conveniently located, affordable and offer advice from high caliber speakers on the most relevant business topics. Because we started this series with local business owners in mind, we poll attendees to see what types of topics are of interest to them. Those responses shape the direction of these events, and help us continually tailor the annual series to what our local businesses say is most important. This year, due to the overwhelming response from attendees at last year’s event, we’re excited to bring back The Leadership Challenge workshop. These workshops continue to be oversold so it’s important to reserve your space early. I am particularly pleased to present Stuart Jenkins, Deckers’ VP of Innovation, as our keynote event this year. Stuart is an inventor and an entrepreneur. I am certain you will be inspired by his intellectual curiosity and his vision of innovation as a discipline we can all benefit from. It’s going to be a great series!”
