CHARLESTON -- At the Aug. 22 Business for Breakfast event, Steve Blackwell of Blackwell and Company will discuss the topic How to Build the Perfect Ad.

"I can't guarantee 'the perfect ad', but I'll get you thinking and, hopefully, put you on the right track," Blackwell said. "As consumers we are constantly berated with advertisements and marketing messages.

"Whether you have a big budget or not, you better have a plan -- and it better be creative!"

The hour-long event is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Aug. 22 at the Charleston Marriott Town Center's Whitewater Grille. It is sponsored by SCORE, SBDC and The State Journal.

There is no fee, although individuals are encouraged to purchase breakfast.

Pre-registration is appreciated. To pre-register, go to or e-mail SCORE at
