Extraordinary Exceptionalism

Broads CircleHave you ever been to a Broads Circle event?  If not, what’s holding you back?  Please take a few moments to answer 3 quick questions and give us your feedback.  Click here to take the survey  

At Broads Circle what we care about is Helping Women Make Money!!!  In an era of financial crises, it has not been easy even for the ‘best of the best’ to grow capital and drive revenue.  But we feel a change in play for women who have the motivation and ambition to drive revenue and grow capital, a time that offers extraordinary opportunity to achieve exceptional results in all metrics for women:

  • Revenue: bottom line money, money in the pocket
  • Capital Transactions: women enjoying liquidity events
  • Power Women Capitalists: women sitting in power seats in the C-Suite and in the corporate Boardroom

The Broads on Boards 2042 Manifesto:  Calling all women captains of industry and other brilliant women!  Let’s take on the challenge that we will work our way into those corporate board seats, until we get to parity by 2042!  No excuses!

March 20:  3rd Annual Women on Corporate Boards
Sponsored by Levine Leichtman Capital Partners
Broads on Boards is hosting this event downtown LA.  If you want to power network with the women who sit at the table in corporate boardrooms, come to this event at the Omni Hotel and learn from corporate Board Directors of Lazy Boy, Jack in the Box, Conway and Whole Foods.  Ask them if they think that women can conquer 50% of all American corporate board seats by 2042.  Register by March 18 to avoid late registration fee!

Women General Counsels discuss sitting in the C-Suite and how to make sure you are driving revenue and growing capital within the law.  Our panel will discuss how to push the pedal to the metal on revenue and capital growth and still play fully within the law, in an increasingly regulated and legally complex global business environment.  We are currently working on putting this panel together–stay tuned for more details.   Continue reading

Happy New Year!!

Darya Allen-AttarI have decided that the word for me in 2012 is STRATEGIC!!!  In 2012, which promises to be a complex year, I will be working on strategic growth of my business and assets, strategic positioning and strategic alliances. It is part of my realization that with the complexity that this year promises, time and resources are particularly limited, and that I need to plan, position and deploy resources carefully, and execute brilliantly to make this year count.  Plan, position and pounce!!!

Let’s tackle the challenges and sieze the opportunities together!   Building relationships and having authentic conversations is what makes my life fun, and we got to do that at the January Broads Circle members-only Monthly Huddle – Meet the CFOs.  At this lunch, we created the first Broads Pod! The CFO Broads Pod was created with new members Berenice Officer, Dogswell; Dawn Olsen, VCA Antech; Jen Petrovich, Body Armour; and Anne Plechner, CFO Consulting.  If you know of other members (or potential new members) who are CFOs and would like to join the CFO Broads Pod, please let us know.

The February Monthly Huddle is Meet the Investment Bankers and women in private equity, and will be on February 8th.  Hope to see our members there!  If you know of any women general counsels, please invite them to Broads Circle, as our March Monthly Huddle will be Meet the GCs.

Broads Circle is going to Orange County!  Our first event in OC will be held on Feb 15th.  Broads Circle is looking for C-Level women leaders in the OC to join the panel.  We have formed an OC advisory board to help plan and produce our events in OC. If you know of any OC professional women who would like to get involved with Broads Circle OC, please contact us. Continue reading

Invest in Yourself

Linda LoReAs the year is winding down, we have some great events to close it out on a positive note.  Be sure to check out the upcoming events listing on our website to learn more.   Our first annual Bottom Line Broads Awards on November 3rd was so exciting for us! We had a fantastic group of women who are leading the way in driving revenue and growing capital. View the event photos at www.BroadsCircle.com.

Is your revenue growth stalling a bit this year due to a tough economy?   Are you growing your capital as you would like?   If not, you may need to invest more time and effort in generating revenue for yourself and your business. I don’t mean sitting there doing the work, but maybe you should invest more in rainmaking.

Broads Circle events provide the opportunity to build business relationships. We believe that successful, impactful, powerful people have strong networks. They draw on these networks in driving revenue and growing capital for themselves and their corporations. Our events provide opportunities for exceptional women in Los Angeles to meet and create high quality money and power connections. Perfect for the Alpha-Girl building a stellar career.

If you are ready to take your revenue and capital to the next level, invest in yourself by attending an upcoming event and connecting with our guests and members. One conversation with the “right” person can help take your business to the next level. If you’ve never attended an event, we invite you to join us and find out what you’re missing!

  1. Members-only dinners following cocktail events
