“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)!

This Event's Entertainer:

Nanciann Horvath, Comedian

Nanciann has always seen the need to live in the present moment and working in the medical field has just reinforced this for her. Therefore she volunteers for many different groups and agencies.

Just one of her many passions is SAG BookPals reader-their website currently has her picture up there. Making Dr. Seuss her specialty, she has done very animated and different readings at: schools, hospitals, nursing homes, KCET TV, LA Zoo, museums, Long Beach Aquarium, and book fares (just to name a few).

Her other passion is helping people in the present with the joy of improvisation! Having done improvisation with LA Connection and other groups she started reading and doing research about the health benefits of improv. Check out her website:
