I had the privilege of sitting with consultant Margo Hansen, Morgan Stanley financial advisor Kathryn O'Hagan, Meadows furnishing solutions Rebecca Ellington, The Consulting Group managing director and Exelcior bookkeeping services president Mila Harris at the first table. And then, after the speaker spoke (as they are wont to do), we all switched tables. Over dessert Carol Long (who does mortagages), MetLife Wall Street Planning Association agency director Sunita Bajaj, event and board governance consultant Jodi Kass-Tracten and Faulding Architecture's Margaret Davis and I exchanged our pitches at a second table.
In addition to eWomenNetwork's actual events, their online network is a growing database of women who believe in supporting other women-owned and operated businesses. While some of us wished there was a bit more time on switching tables and actual networking as opposed to hearing a sales-y pitch on the power of the organization, everyone had a great time and made some solid contacts. http://www.ewomennetwork.com/
