The Avanti Summit, a new event slated for May, is targeted to entrepreneurs.

Veteran entrepreneur Norm Brodsky will be the keynote speaker. Brodsky is senior contributing editor of Inc. magazine, co-founder of Branded Entrepreneur Network and honorary chairman of the Business Owner's Council.

At the summit, experts will offer strategies and systems.
A panel discussion titled “The Pleasures & Pitfalls of Being an Entrepreneur” features Michael Linehan, Premier Laser Spa; Arunas Chesonis, Sweetwater Energy Inc.; Kathleen Pringle, Kathleen Pringle Group Inc.; Rob Levin, RSL Media; Bruce Peters, Beyond Teal; Lauren Dixon, Dixon Schwabl Inc.; Richard Kaplan, CurAegis Technologies Inc., a Torvec Co.; and Philip Saunders, Saunders Management Co.

The all-day summit is May 4 at the Strathallan. The event is presented by David Mammano, founder of Next Step Education Group.

“There are many business owners who are great visionaries but when it comes to organizing their thoughts into a process that leads to execution, they fall down,” Mammano said in a statement.

 Individual tickets to attend the event are $195. See more details at
