Last year, hundreds of professional women took part in an effort to learn more about themselves and each other at South Florida Business Journal’s BizWomen Mentoring Monday. Among the esteemed mentors was our very own Durée Ross, president of South Florida PR Firm Durée & Company, chatting enthusiastically with the next generation of female leaders (and potential PR mavens).
Duree was very honored to be part of such a large group of strong, professional strong women. Therefore, when her good friends at South Florida Business Journal asked her to participate again in 2015, she was more than happy to return.
The one-of-a-kind event is one-of-a-kind for a few reasons:
1) It brings together women in a casual, fast-paced, coaching atmosphere.
2) The same mentoring interaction will take place simultaneously in 43 Business Journal markets, making it a national event happening across different states.
3) Every young woman has a whopping seven minutes to talk with each mentor, making it a speed-dating session of professional proportions.
So imagine having the opportunity to chat up leaders at American Express, GardaWorld, Nova Southeastern University and Cold Stone Creamery, but with less than 10 minutes to make an impression. Our advice: Be ready! Click here for the impressive list of participating mentors.
For Durée, it’s another chance to network, befriend and inspire young women who want to be a part of the South Florida fabric of leaders and executives. Here’s to talking fast and connecting even faster.
