“Laugh and who cares if the world laughs with you or not!” -- Meghann Conter

We’ve learned that when you “get out of seriousness” for an evening that you make deeper connections than at your typical, buttoned-up networking event.

The Dames events are a spunky, energy-filled mixture of connection, laughter and illumination. Devotees come to rub elbows with women who are at or above their level instead of fending off “business card stabbers” to find the one potential collaborator in the mix.



Does This Sound Like You?

  • You own and/or lead a six or seven-figure business
  • You are a senior leader of a corporation or nonprofit (directors, VPs and C-Suite executives)
  • Your organization is cause-based and you are on a mission to make an impact
  • You love to collaborate with and learn from other female business leaders
  • You’re up for a night of laughter and fun at a non-traditional networking event

If so, you’ll fit right in at The Dames and find yourself surrounded by like-minded women who are ready to reach new heights together (and have fun in the process)!

Using Emotional Intelligence to Maximize Your Success

The term “emotional intelligence” (often abbreviated as EQ for “emotional quotient”) is part of our popular culture. It’s the rare person who hasn’t heard the term and even thrown it around in casual conversation. But do you really know what it means and how to use it?

Emotional Intelligence is a powerful tool that can positively impact how you engage and respond to the world around you. Developing your EQ can help you become more resilient, increase your productivity, help you communicate more effectively, and give you better outcomes for mental and physical health. This presentation will show you how EQ can go from being a buzzword something that you can actually use to have a huge impact on your personal and professional success and on your bottom line.
