Bizwomen Mentoring Monday Sells Out

CBIZ MHM had the honor of participating as a National Sponsor in Bizwomen Mentoring Monday held at the Memphis Botanic Gardens on April 7, 2014.

This year was the first time the Memphis Business Journal hosted the event, and the response was tremendous. Tickets sold out, and 250 women (and men - see photo by Alan Howell, MBJ, at left) gathered for one-on-one mentoring sessions with some of the Mid-South's most influential women in business. The event coincided with Mentoring Mondays hosted across the United States in all the American City Business Journal (ACBJ) markets.

Linda Lauer, Managing Director in the Memphis office of CBIZ MHM and Executive Board member of CBIZ Women's Advantage, was one of 40 mentors who coached mentees in five-minute one-on-one conversations. Attendees ranged in age from high school students to experienced professionals, all seeking business or career advice. Mentoring Monday also featured Lori Greiner of hit TV-series Shark Tank, who spoke on entrepreneurship and the importance of having confidence in the business world.

Though the speed-networking sessions demonstrated quite literally the term "organized-chaos," the event's success was evident in the exchanges between the mentees and the mentors.

Look out for a follow-up post including video footage from the event. You can see more pictures and tweets from Mentoring Monday by searching for #bizwomen and #bizwomenmentoring on Twitter. Further information regarding women in business can be found on the ACBJ's new website: www.bizwomen.com.
