Sponsored Edition: The New Girls Network

www.leichic.comBusiness life is filled with (usually meaningless) corporate catchphrases. You know, It’s all about relationships. Or, We want to leverage the synergy across brands. And your favorite, It’s time to think outside the box.

But in a slowing economy, here’s a saying that’s never been more true: It’s not what you know but who you know. So make plans to get to know the Hawaii business women at the top of their game.

Register for The Wahine Forum, next Tuesday July 14. It’s a half-day program organized by Hawaii Business magazine and the Junior League of Honolulu where you’ll sit side by side with the top female corporate leaders in Hawaii and get insider tips for getting ahead at work, and in life.

Register now and take $50 off the entrance fee with code LEI-50. Click here for the full lineup of speakers, workshops and to register.

 You’ll get expert advice on being a better negotiator. Learn the do’s and don’ts of starting your own company from local women who have launched international businesses. And, find out how to make volunteer opportunities advance your personal and professional goals.

So while you’ll come away with lots of new knowledge to put in the “what you know” column, it’s the possibility of sitting next to Aloha United Way President Susan Au Doyle, Girl Scouts of Hawaii President Gail Hanneman or local finance superstars Chenoa Farnsworth and Susan Scott Hamada (yes, they’re all attending) that makes the event a can’t-miss to beef up your “who you know” contact list.

How’s that for an innovative network development strategy?

Visit for full details and to register. The Wahine Forum happens Tuesday July 14 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Sheraton Waikiki.
