"Reinventing a Company with a Soul"
Featuring: Sara Campbell, Founder & CEO and Peter Wheeler

This quarterly presentation will be a riveting account of unexpected challenges and learning as you go. Sara Campbell began her career in 1982 as a featured artist in a wearable art gallery and museum shows. This lead to the birth of a women artist mail order catalog. Sara's one-of-a-kind garments became a numbered, limited edition series.

In 1985 Sara Campbell founded Sara Campbell LTD, where she designs, manufactures, and retails the brand of woman’s clothing, aptly called Sara Campbell. The collection features dresses along with novelty and playful sportswear. A few years later, Sara was joined by Peter Wheeler, a veteran in the industry. Their relationship as friends and business partners has been at the heart of the daily successes at Sara Campbell LTD.

Sara Campbell likes to say, "We like to think of ourselves as a business with a soul. We feel a deep responsibility to carry a spirit of gratitude, and in carrying that spirit, give back to those in need."

But Sara Campbell's soul has been challenged and tested. In this presentation, Sara Campbell and Peter Wheeler will share five significant lessons they learned the hard way:
business niche - why this is so significant | reinvention of a company - how this can come about
investors - how they help and challenge an owner | divorcing family employees - beware!c
hallenging professional advisors - how to choose them c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y
They will also discuss their philanthropic activities.
