Please join us at Bank Midwest for August Beyond Banking. Presenter Santina Cessor will lead you through a variety of activities designed to help you form a foundational business story quickly without overthinking.

Santina is classically trained in Interior Design. Starting her first business in February 2016, Threads Studio became an innovative, creative firm helping companies define and tell their stories through various communication outlets. 
Santina spent over a decade dedicated to the design, construction and real estate development industry, working in business development, marketing, and interior design. She is a master at getting businesses, and people revved up about their skills pushing them to share it all, calling out how to take action on those skills and do so authentically. 
Santina's intimate knowledge of the design process, ability to listen intently and create purposeful story makes her a unique partner. She is able to work in unison with various trades seamlessly and interweave her client's brand and story throughout the design process. 

Doors open at 8:00 a.m. for networking and the program will begin at 8:15 a.m. A light snack will be provided.  There is no charge to attend.
