About the speaker
“One theme has remained consistent throughout my career: I rely on my best ideas for work.”
Rebecca Thomas is a veteran entrepreneur, expert problem-solver and writer of useful things. Her entrepreneurial career began at twenty-four with a small real estate firm. In 2005 she opened a retail wine bar which has grown into a 150 seat restaurant (kybecca.com).
Her experience in building a restaurant from the ground up, sustaining it and evolving the business to meet a changing marketplace has enabled her to understand how important it is to set your enterprise up correctly from the get-go. Structure sets success.
She has developed real estate for specific use both in residential and commercial, worked with cities to secure incentives, scouted locations, created a concept and brought it to fruition. In 2016 she began consulting to select clients to help them access the mentorship and clarity that made such a difference throughout her own career.
Rebecca is also a freelance writer who maintains a weekly email blog on the subject of what makes a good life. She believes understanding yourself and learning to train your mind to interpret other people’s actions, the systems we live in, and our true motivations lead to a more satisfying life. Her work centers on the idea that the examination of the self is a worthwhile endeavor that can contribute a greater good to society at large.
Rebecca moved to Richmond in 2014 to have more access to culture and the arts. She is a passionate pedestrian who has made it a point to walk the whole city. You can find her enjoying the many public trails, sampling yummy things and relishing in her own good life.
At Capital One, we believe that innovation is powered by perspective and that teamwork and respect for each other lead to superior results. We elevate each other and obsess about doing the right thing. Our associates serve with humility and a deep respect for their responsibility in helping our customers achieve their goals and realize their dreams. Together, we are on a quest to change banking for good.
Here’s what you need to know about us. We break traditions. We break molds. We break through. Our passion is to help you make the change you need to succeed. From strategy to execution, we create the kind of change that brings you closer to the people you serve: citizens, consumers, and entire communities.
Just as we did when our company was founded in 1970, we continue to call ourselves “printers” – and so do our customers. Makes sense. Offset, digital, wide-format, and letterpress printing are today the core technologies of Worth Higgins & Associates. UV ink and coating, foil stamping, embossing and die cutting are tools of the printing process that we handle extraordinarily well in helping our clients achieve their creative goals and take their ideas beyond their imaginations.
Consider cultural impact as The Martin Agency’s modus operandi. When Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres and Stephen Colbert spontaneously start talking about our clients…when our clients are a Jeopardy! clue and Wheel of Fortune reveal…when SNL parodies our man in a lady wig…we consider it both a good day and all in a day’s work. And maybe a Hump Day, too. A full-service advertising agency with a goal of not just making our clients seen – but making them culturally relevant, Martin has created steady buzz around GEICO, OREO, UPS, Donate Life and Walmart, to name a few. And we’ve been doing it as far back as 1969 when we penned Virginia is for Lovers. People still wonder, What can Brown do for you? Work that leverages culture, wakes people up, fights invisibility, and gets talked about – it’s what we do, and we’ve done it for 53 years.
