For all women who live in the San Francisco Bay Area…

This Professional Networking Gathering For Extraordinary Women Is Like No Other…

Upgrade Your Business and Your Life!

This unique gathering offers a relaxed environment to be re-charged, re-inspired and re-connected and to do business with like-minded professional women like you.

Women at DevA
  • Are you ready for networking to be fun: to take the “work” out of networking?

  • Are you looking for new business solutions that will allow you to be successful and have a life?

  • Are you craving a community where you feel seen, valued and supported?

Did you know there’s a way to get more done by doing less?

We have tested this theory and it works! When you take a break from technology from time-to-time and schedule regular face-to-face time with like-minded women, you will find, as we did, that your energy, enthusiasm and creativity is renewed by connection.

At the same time, perhaps you are looking for new ways to grow your business?

There’s no doubt about it, women like to build the “know”, “like”, and “trust” factor before doing business with another. We like the time to get to know one’s another, to build a relationship first: this way business is sustainable over time.

Dearest Extraordinary Woman… We’re Karen Renée  and Aimée and we have a new solution with a demonstrated track record! Over the years, we’ve attended many women’s events, business professional gatherings, and networking meetings where all too often we left feeling tired, de-energized and questioning if it was all a waste of our precious time. We found little that was truly nourishing and resented the “push” energy of the room. After all, how much can you absorb when you are feeling pressured to perform? This began the conversation about what kind of event would we want to attend? A networking event you can hardly wait to get to each month…

We have good news! Experience an even better way to connect!

Imagine investing one afternoon each month to attend a unique business gathering for extraordinary women (yes, that’s you!) that offers a nurturing and uplifting environment so you can be inspired, renewed, educated, and recognized. A networking event where you will get to meet and connect with other extraordinary professional women and grow your business by developing new relationships.

That’s Right…

This Is Not Your Typical Business Networking Meeting!

Join us for just a few hours a month where you will:

  • Be inspired and educated by our top-of-the-line speakers
  • Learn new tips and techniques for being more conscious in business
  • Make new business connections with other professional women
  • Be nurtured by the warmth and beauty of our meeting space
  • Leave re-energized, recharged, and motivated to take better care of yourself

And we don’t stop there! But, we know that one way to refill you is to surprise and delight you!
