Tampa Bay Business Journal BizWomen Event April 7, 2014

Meet Your Mentor at the Bizwomen Mentoring Monday Event with Keynote/Broadcast Interview with Lori Greiner, The Warm Blooded Shark.

Tampa, FL, March 21, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Join the Tampa Bay Business Journal on April 7th for the first event of its kind and the beginning of an annual tradition that brings women together in a casual, fast-paced coaching atmosphere. This event will take place in 40 markets on the same day which means at least 200+ women will be coached in every market or 8,000+ women across America, from Albany to Hawaii.

The event will offer attendees the opportunity to choose from 40 mentors who are the most influential women in the community for one-on-one coaching sessions for five-minute conversations. The attendees will stand in line and wait for a particular mentor or move to the next mentor available. This will allow the attendees to network with each other while they are waiting, which is just as beneficial as the coaching sessions. We expect every attendee to have the opportunity to meet between one and seven mentors. The quick turnaround is organized chaos, which will be fast, fun and fulfilling as everyone gets the chance to meet new people and gain new insights.

When: Monday, April 7, 2014 8am-10am
Where: Metropolitan Ministries’ Welcome Center, 165 East Francis Avenue, Tampa 33602
Tentative Agenda (subject to change): 8:00 a.m.-8:30 a.m. Networking and buffet breakfast
