What do you do when a global pandemic strikes, the economy is in tatters, and most people stay home? It’s a natural time to lay low and hopes that it passes by, to quote a particular member high, high up in the Republican party. Or you can take the occasion to hit the ground running, reassess your priorities, and see if your business, indeed your life, can pivot at a moment’s notice.
“While facing unprecedented times, it is doubly important to create an environment where business leaders can gather and discuss how to navigate these challenging times.”
On April 16th, that’s precisely what Omniprint International did. Owner Victor Pena and his staff dedicated their vast resources to create a digital conference, The Creator’s Boardroom, where a variety of creators came together, digitally, to discuss all manners of entrepreneurship, from financing to sales, creative and tech, to social media, and anything else that would fit under its virtual roof. More than 1500 registered attendees, featuring 17 speakers from all over the United States, assembled for this dynamic gathering that had a little bit of everything.
Founded in 2003, by President and CEO, Victor Pena, Omniprint International, located in Costa Mesa, CA, is one of the leading Digital To Garment (DTG) manufacturers in the world, SGIA has recognized them as one of the finest Direct to Garment printers in the industry. Victor manages all facets of Omniprint International while supervising one of the best teams in Orange County, or anywhere else for that matter.
Upon hearing of the local community’s needs, and the importance of managing this global health crisis, while providing experienced leadership, Mr. Peña completely reorganized its hectic schedule, his local staff, and created an experience that won’t soon be forgotten. While everyone logged in via (the popular meeting platform) Zoom, G Social and its staff coordinated the logistical elements, Zoom logins, and maximized technical capabilities, while filming the proceedings, as well as producing behind-the-scene footage that captured the busy afternoon.
G Social’s Founder, Gabo Garcia was pleased with the results: “I think that it’s essential to do whatever we can to help each other, now, and, frankly, whenever this crisis is a thing of the past. My responsibility, as a small business owner, is to connect the various individuals that will help us through this.”
