This week I attended Professional Women’s Roundtable’s monthly meeting held at the elegant Four Seasons Hotel. Ann Armstrong, Four Seasons’ Director of Marketing, collaborated with PWR’s VP Heather Herrington, Esq. to host us in the beautiful Fountain restaurant. The meeting theme was “Tailor your Image”. We had several guest speakers who offered us break out sessions for various aspects of polishing our professional images as women in the workforce – wardrobe and make-up; vocal coaching; print imaging of our experiences, etc.

Together with the delicious appetizers and the specialty peach cocktail, the evening and the camaraderie was a great success!

Visit to learn more about PWR and upcoming events. The next one on Wed. August 7th 8 AM, is timely because the topic is “Taking your Seat at the Table – Empowering Women to Success in their Career Paths”. There will be a panel discussion about Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg’s best selling book “Lean In”.

My connections & networking with PWR most definitely were a catalyst for me to begin my book quest journey. Events, personal meetings and discussions at their group were definitely a part of empowering me and encouraging me to “lean in” and follow my dream of writing my book.
