“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
  • 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 Entertainer:
Rachel Burch

Internationally known to rock the microphone (via her podcast), this former trial attorney believes life transformation should happen in the most pleasurable way possible. Rachel is a life transformation coach and mentor, stand up comedian and host of her own podcast, The Transformation Maven Podcast. Leading by example, Rachel shares how she transformed every area of her own life, from her career to her relationship with her body to her cluttered countertops.

Rachel ascribes to Tony Robbins' belief that "success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure" and helps professional women and entrepreneurs bridge that gap between success and fulfillment.

Rachel recently wrapped her first sitcom pilot and was a finalist in the Funniest Housewives Competition. She has performed at local venues throughout Southern California, including the Irvine Improv, Adele's in San Clemente, the Camino Real Playhouse in San Juan Capistrano, and most recently, Victor's Speakeasy in Long Beach.
