La Voz Marketing President, Stacey Kaszton Jones, was invited to speak at
The Elite OC’s May Educational Schmoozer, alongside Dr. Chip Espinoza of Concordia University.  The two speakers educated over 100 attendees on personal branding and thriving as a millennial in today’s market.  Dr. Chip Espinoza is the co-author of “Millennials@Work: The 7 Skills Every Twenty-Something Needs to Overcome Roadblocks and Achieve Greatness At Work” and “Managing the Millennials: Discover the Core Competencies for Managing Today’s Workforce.” He is also Academic Director of the Organizational Psychology program at Concordia University Irvine.

The Elite OC, with the support of Concordia University Irvine, hosts quarterly Educational Schmoozers that offer information about relevant topics. This quarter attendees listened to Stacey Jones talk about the power of personal branding and how one can establish and fortify their personal brand to achieve greatness.  Dr. Espinoza spoke about thriving as a millennial in the workplace, and how millennials can stand out among their peers and excel in the workplace alongside Baby Boomer and Generation X colleagues.

As part of its mission, The Elite OC raises awareness and donations for a local nonprofit organization at each event.  LVM’s client, the Newport Beach Public Library Foundation, was the highlighted charity for this event.  The Foundation funds valuable library resources and programs –– engaging the community in cultural and intellectual adventure through the sponsorship of diverse public programs and cutting-edge library enhancements.  Aside from funding the library’s Media Lab, the Foundation also funds plenty of educational community programs, such as the Witte Lectures and Library Live series, the monthly Medicine in Our Backyard, book discussion groups, financial workshops, and children’s events and programs.TEOC Image

The Foundation relies on its members’ support to fund the programs at the library that support education and culture in our community. If you’re interested in giving to this organization, click here.

La Voz Supports Community College District in Raising Job Awareness

Anaheim Angels RSCCDLa Voz Marketing recently supported the Rancho Santiago Community College District (RSCCD) in planning and executing its first ‘Hop On, Hop Off Tour’ to raise awareness of job opportunities among high school students.  The program focused on opportunities in the retail, hospitality, and tourism fields. LVM partnered with the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC), the Honda Center / Anaheim Ducks, Visit Anaheim, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Hilton Anaheim and Angels Baseball to give students from various community colleges in the area an introduction to the world of hospitality, tourism and more.
The tour, which included experiences at ARTIC, the Honda Center, the Anaheim Convention Center, and Angel Stadium of Anaheim, was the first of its kind to be hosted by the RSCCD.  It featured a lunch panel of speakers from Visit Anaheim, Hilton of Anaheim and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., which allowed students to get an inside look into at jobs in these areas and a chance to ask the questions from the experts.
Rancho Santiago Community College District (RSCCD) is one of the largest of California’s 72 community college districts, based on the number of credit and noncredit students. Many of its colleges have Hospitality and Tourism programs. Helping expose high school students to different job fields early is important because RSCCD can help students realize and achieve their goals through their many courses
and programs.
If you also believe in the cause of helping students become passionate to achieve their goals through education, or if you yourself are still searching for your passion, contact RSCCD today to find a program at your local community college!
