SMALL BUSINESS | TIMES SMALL-BUSINESS CONFERENCE

Kinko's Founder to Share Expertise

September 02, 1998

Paul Orfalea, who opened his first tiny Kinko's near UC Santa Barbara almost 30 years ago and steered its growth into a worldwide leader in business services, will give a keynote address at the Los Angeles Times Small Business Strategies Conference next month.

Orfalea will touch on three themes: work, love and play--all of which he said have been central to the company's philosophy.

More than 10,000 small-business owners are expected to attend the conference Oct. 17-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Participants may choose from more than 40 panels and workshops.

Some of the nation's top entrepreneurs and small-business leaders will share their expertise on such topics as opening franchises, developing leadership skills, negotiating, taking on family businesses, marketing to ethnic groups, writing news releases and creating a Web site.

Registration is $70 for one day, $99 for both days. Orfalea will speak Oct. 17 from 8:15 to 9:30 a.m.
