NIFA Announces Upcoming Luncheon Featuring Ryan Smolkin on Dec. 1
The Northern Illinois Franchise Association (NIFA), founded by All Points PR’s executive leadership team Jamie and Lauren Izaks alongside friend and colleague Andrew Bleiman, managing attorney with Marks & Klein, one of America’s leading law firms specializing in the franchise industry with a Chicago office, is hosting its December Luncheon, to be held Dec. 1 from noon – 2 p.m. at Intro in Lincoln Park. A truly unique restaurant concept, Intro features a rotating roster of notable chefs who bring their own food style to the chic spot.
We’re excited to announce that the December Luncheon will feature keynote speaker Ryan Smolkin, and will be sponsored by event sponsor BMO Harris and valet sponsor Honkamp Krueger.
Ryan is best known as the nonconformist CEO of internationally acclaimed Smoke’s Poutinerie, whose creativity, innovation and unorthodox approach to business and franchising has turned the concept into a global phenomenon. He has a storied background in big brand marketing, leading the charge for brands such as Nike, Molson and Maple Leaf Sports. Ryan will discuss “Communicating the Brand: How Strong Brand Identity Can Electrify Growth.”
