NEW ORLEANS – Jay Barros, the director of partnerships at ThreeSixtyEight, a creative agency in Baton Rouge that helps clients including Epson, Quantcast, and CenturyLink embrace their creative confidence, will speak at the Hispanic Business Conference and Trade Show, Wednesday, Aug. 9, at Harrah's New Orleans, 228 Poydras St., from 11:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.
Presented by the Hispanic Young Professionals of Louisiana, Barros’ breakout session is called “Tackling The Networking Jitters – A Critical Skill For Young Professional.”
The Hispanic Business Conference and Trade Show is the premiere venue for Hispanic businesses to market their goods and services and it is the perfect opportunity for those reaching out to the Hispanic business community for inclusion in the sourcing process, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana reps said.
Small business owners, corporate supply chain executives and nonprofit resource partners are invited to participate in this free event from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Barros, an advertising executive from Lima, Peru, started his career in 2011 when he was hired by LSU Student Media’s sales team, a place where students are encouraged to learn by doing and forging their own path to success, with the guidance of professional staff.
Six years later, ThreeSixtyEight’s director of partnerships Barros has helped build the company that is currently on track to hit $2 million in revenue this year, thanks to their ability to network and forge strong partnerships both locally and nationally, reps said.
Barros has also served on the leadership board of the American Advertising Federation – Baton Rouge, the executive team of BNI, and he’s one of the organizers for Geaux Rouge, a group that puts on quarterly food festivals like Burger Fest, Mac and Cheese Fest, and Brunch Fest.
Although Barros works in the creative industry, the best way to get his attention is to talk to him about cars, cats or pursuing something you are passionate about, HCCL reps said.
