The Memphis office of CBIZ MHM held its annual Super Women in Business Awards Pre-Event Party on Tuesday night, August 20th. This event precedes the Memphis Business Journal's Super Women in Business Awards luncheon that will be held later this month. Steve Dunavant, Senior Managing Director, welcomed the crowd to the CBIZ-sponsored event and gave his personal support for the Awards, as well as the recognition it gives to the Mid-South's leading women decision makers.
Both the 2013 class and the 2012 class of honorees were invited to mingle and network over drinks and hors d'oeurvres.
This year the event was held at Mednikow Jewelers, a multi-generational Memphis storefront. Over 50 people enjoyed the luxurious jewels on display throughout the venue. Attendees could try-on and purchase jewelry at the time of the event. Mednikow jewelry experts were also available to provide insight into the quality and craftsmanship of their selection. Linda Lauer, Managing Director, is pictured wearing one of the store's necklaces with Mednikow gemologist, Tiffany Brimhall.
Lauer, Executive Board member for the CBIZ Women's Advantage as well as CBIZ Memphis' CWA leader, offered her insight on the importance of an internal support system of women professionals, as well as an external network of highly-skilled, seasoned, professional women.
Food and bar service was provided by Jim's Place Restaurant & Bar
. A special martini bar was also set-up as a fun addition to the event. A $150 giftcard giveaway for Etcetera
clothing was also an exciting feature. Mednikow party favors were distributed at the end of the night to the Super Women in Business as they left the venue. It was certainly a glamorous night, and 50 of the Mid-South's most influential business women shined.
