Spotlight Speaker: Camille Clement-Gregg will be sharing information about the Brighter Stars Fund that she is passionate to support.

Camille is President and CEO of Outside The Box Marketing and has served the Arts in our community with an unrivaled passion for decades. From early on with the Otis Smith Foundation where she was responsible for and implemented the Jaguar’s that adorned our city streets and now reside with new owners. (One of which is Pixie and her husband Rob have; Water Lily hangs out in their backyard as a beautiful centerpiece).

Camille is also an advocate of all things feline, fostering, feeding, rescuing and finding homes for countless animals. Although her most noted claim to fame is her OBSESSION with Elton John. She has seen him in concert over 125 times, met him, and has the pictures to prove it.

I would like to personally thank Pixie Larizza, CCO of Pixieglas™ for donating this spotlight speaker opportunity in the name of the arts and for Brighter Stars.


Keynote Speaker: Leigh Gardner, Cypress Business Communications, Inc

Following a 20-year career with Florida Blue, Leigh Gardner founded Cypress Business Communications, Inc. in 2015 in response to a need for a business-savvy resource to help businesses tackle communications that often sit on a to-do list: proposal content, case studies, and policies and procedures for business owners who want to make the right first impression with potential customers, investors or employees.  

Leigh’s career has focused on the compliance-heavy healthcare industry. After 18 years with Memorial Medical Center, she moved to the health insurance side of health care, where she worked for Florida Blue and their subsidiaries, First Coast Service Options and Incepture.

Her roles of managing RFP responses, documenting policies and procedures, and responsibility for project management documentation contributed to the development of Leigh’s writing career. She has managed responses for multimillion-dollar federal government contracts, commercial print mail bids, and information technology services quotes. As a charter employee of Incepture, Inc., she was responsible for documenting operating policies and procedures for the new company.

Leigh holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Florida. She is currently on the board of the Northeast Florida Postal Customer Council and volunteers for the annual BikeMS fundraiser for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of NE Florida. She has written and presented on various business topics, primarily focusing on written communications and information security.
