The Dames of Phoenix/Scottsdale
We’ve created a place where you can bring both your talents and vulnerabilities, be welcomed beyond belief, then walk away knowing you have the strategies and connections you’ve been looking for all along. This is more than a networking community…we’ll go so far as to call it a movement.
You will only meet women playing at your level
- that’s a guarantee.
To ensure that you will make high-caliber connections, we require that our members are women who:
- Lead and grow their own 6 and 7-figure companies and nonprofits
- Or women in Director/equivalent and higher roles in large organizations
And also women who:
- Take consistent, aligned action toward and celebrate personal and professional growth equally
- Trade high-stress for high-caliber and ceaselessly confront the myth of the "virtuous hustle"
- Desire to "get out of serious," knowing that laughter and joy are vital to limitless growth
- Influential and collaborate fearlessly, share vulnerably, and thrive in authentic connection
Meet Vanessa Shaw, Chapter President
The key to Vanessa’s success isn’t the ability to channel her inner Chrissie Evert or Carrie Bradshaw on command; it’s knowing never to channel them at the same time! Originally from the UK, Vanessa is an International Business and Success Coach with more than 15 years of experience working with business leaders (including those with The World Economic Forum, Oracle, Sandler Training and within the International Coach Federation). When you see her at our next event, ask her about the time she “accidentally” won a puppy at auction!
