Connecting Great Women to Great Women!
Join us at our next Extraordinary Women Connect Gala on January 23, 2018!
At Extraordinary Women Connect Galas we gather in an intimate circle of wildly successful extraordinary women connecting in meaning, purpose and shared support. Together we will explore stories of courage, success and living out loud. You’ll say yes to you, yes to connection, yes to living an inspired life!
Extraordinary Women Connect Galas always feature a very special group of women who join us as our guest Circle of Inspiration Facilitators! I’m always so honored by the amazing extraordinary women who say YES to leading our circles of inspiration and insight! I invite you to visit our Hall of Fame of past Circle of Inspiration Facilitators!
Our January event is going to feature CEO women of some fast growing Colorado companies! Let’s meet our honorary Circle of Inspiration Facilitators! (scroll to the bottom for their impressive bios!) I can’t wait to host a panel of discussion around success, making a difference and women in leadership! I know you can’t wait to sit around an intimate table with these women in story and meaningful conversation! That’ the beauty of Extraordinary Women Connect!
Who Attends Extraordinary Women Connect: Extraordinary women leaders interested in connecting with other wildly successful women in real conversations and story! They are the change makers, the rule breakers and the rebels. They are women whose voices are meant to be heard. They are the dreamers AND the doers, and they lead with grit and grace. We’ve had representation from the DBJ’s most influential women list, and senior executive woman in some of the Denver area’s largest companies and the fastest growing start-ups.
What we do: We start with cocktails and great conversations, followed by an inspiring panel discussion with our Circle of Inspiration Facilitators. Finally we move into intimate and inspiring circles of conversation around topics that really matter. You will share stories of courage, success and living with intention with other women leaders, led by our circle of inspiration facilitators!

What the wildly successful women say about Extraordinary Women Connect!
“I enjoyed the event last night….. Such amazing women and great questions to ponder and discuss!”
“It was so inspiring to hear all the women’s stories that they shared so eloquently!”
“It was really an amazing evening. Bravo on bringing so many amazing women together and connecting us all. And the venue was magical!”
“A first class, one of a kind event! I was looking forward to the event since you announced it, but had no idea the level of deep interaction and thought provoking ideas that I came away with. My batteries were fully charged by the time the evening was over with and it’s just want I needed!”
“It was warm and authentic, the table topics were just right, the facilitators were great, and the company was wonderful. And the food was so good, and so thoughtfully crafted into the evening’s activities.”
“Thank you for a wonderful evening! I had no idea what the event would include and was pleasantly surprised at the energy, sharing and networking that occurred. It was also a great opportunity for me to reflect on my current life, where I spend my time and how I can best create more space in my life to accomplish the things I have much passion about and need for in my life. I called a close friend and told her all about the event on the way home. Then, spent a half hour telling my husband. He said, “You sound like you just spent an evening with your best friends!” Great energy.”
