Protect Yo' Neck! An Intellectual Property + Trademark Workshop

Join HFBC Erika Harrison of BlackGirlsWhoBrunch and Katrina Clarence Rene of The Corkscrew Concierge for a fun filled knowledge session on how to protect your brand! 

 

About this workshop
A quality Trademark or "mark" is the bedrock of any successful business or product. Protecting this valuable asset is imperative to a company's success, and yet surprisingly few entrepreneurs know much about what it is and how to protect it.

In this class, students will learn the fundamentals of trademark law, including what makes a good mark, how to select a mark, how to protect a mark, and how to properly use a mark in the marketplace to maximize the value of this important asset. This workshop is perfect for bloggers, product marketers and  other individuals who will be responsible for or are interested in learning about selecting a company name, product name, or designing a brand!

* *While Katrina and Erika are attorneys, their advice/suggestions during this segment should not be considered legal advice nor will it form a attorney-client relationship.  Attendees are encouraged to attend to learn about Katrina and Erika's first hand experience with completing a trademark and are encouraged to seek legal counsel for additional assistance* *

This event is free and will take place at HS Green. Food and Beverage provided.

Taste of Italy Houston

Calling all Italian Food and Wine lovers!!

On March 5, 2018 the largest food and wine trade fair in the U.S. devoted exclusively to Italian products is coming to Houston! The Houston Food Blogger Collective has cordially been invited to attend and capture this amazing event. 

Our very own Jeremy Parzen, Ph.D. Writer, food and wine historian (DoBianchi.com) will lead the discussion as one of Taste of Italy's featured speakers! 

A little bit about Dr. Parzen:

Ever since completing his studies in Italian literature in 1997, Houston-based food and wine writer Jeremy Parzen has written extensively about Italian culture and foodways. An adjunct professor of food and wine writing at the Slow Food university (the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Piedmont, Italy), Parzen is also an editor of the Slow Wine Guide to the Wines of Italy, Slovenia, and California. A widely published author and translator, he was called a “Master of Place” by Wine & Spritsmagazine in 2016 and his blog, DoBianchi.com, where he writes mostly about Italian wine, is considered to be a leading resource for Italian wine lovers and wine professionals.

THANK YOU. THIS EVENT IS FULL.

Should the Attendant not be there: When you enter the building go to your left and turn right at the hallway near the stairs. Peli Deli will be on your right hand side.
