"The fun never stops as long as you're in community!” - Olympia Hostler

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
  • OR you are a senior leader of a large corporation or nonprofit (directors, VPs and C-Suite executives)
  • Your organization is mission-driven and makes a positive 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)!

This Event's Award Recipient

Marisa Murgatroyd

Hi, I'm Marisa Murgatroyd, and I'm the Founder of Live Your Message and the creator of the Experience Product Masterclass. I turn everyday entrepreneurs into online superheroes so they can change the world from their living room.

I started my career as an artist who was told by my father that I had no marketable skills. I figured out how to build a multi-seven figure business anyway and showed over 5,000 students how to succeed online—many of whom felt like they had "no marketable skills" or were also told they couldn't do it.

I teach people how to design and market a brand new kind of online program called an "Experience Product" that combines gamification, adult learning theory and the psychology of motivation to create an unforgettable experience that gets anywhere from 10-30x the industry standard results for your customers... and for your business. And the best part is that anyone can do it.


This Event's Entertainer:

Denise Shue

Denise Shue has spent the past 40 years making beautiful smiles, but recently she has been making people smile in another a stand-up comedian.

Shue's sunny sense of humor has always kept her patients entertained.

Often they'd tell her she should do stand-up. When her sister. Candy Shue, gave her a comedy workshop as a Christmas present, Shue jumped right in.

Shue did open mics at several dive bars in Orange County while working her way up to performing at the Irvine Improv, Brea Improv and Ontario Improv. Her following has grown substantially from her early days when the only people in the audience were the other comics.

In fact, she has become so popular that she was even "roasted" by her fellow comedians and one of her patients, for her birthday in September.

"My comedy is all about me, bright teeth and short skirts!" says Shue. "Who would have guessed that USC would be where I started out? It turns out that my dental operatory is the perfect comedy workout room. My patients are a captive audience.

"The first class was exciting and scary! The good thing is that it put me on stage right away, and I was hooked," says Shue. When not working for USC dentists, Shue enjoys traveling to foreign lands and cheering on the USC football team. Readers can follow her adventures and find out where she'll be performing by "Liking" her Facebook page,
