Hosted at Cattle & Claw within the cutest hotel on Beverly Blvd. Sofitel Hotel complete with instagram friendly backdrops and killer cocktails my friend, Kelli, who runs "The Single Girl Life" threw a cute party/networking event for this special day, celebrating women! Kelli has a dream to build a network of women that support each other through thick and thin.
She invited inspirational speaker, Sarah Pendrick, of Girl Talk Network to help facilitate, speak and help proclaim the love we have for ourselves!
Unlike other networking events, where it feels awkward to actually mingle and meet people, Kelli's event enforced and encouraged us to meet and talk to the other women that were in attendance.
We did a few group activities that were a little awkward at first, but had a big pay off at the end. One of them was holding hands with the person sitting next to us and spending 30 seconds telling that person what we love about our-self. Followed by a few of us getting up front of the crowd & proclaiming why we love ourselves and sharing one "brag". I loved the collaboration>competition message in these exercises because there is an underlying understanding that there is room for everyone to succeed.
Since we had to get vulnerable with each other, it was easy to connect with others.
The event came complete with cute activities such as nail art & wine glass flower arrangements.
Kelli truly set the bar in new-age networking getting all of us to speak to each other, participate in activities, and truly embrace ourselves for who we are with no judgment attachment.
I can guarantee that every attendee left feeling empowered, inspired & full of love.
Oh, and did I mention cupcakes?
