Liz’s Leadership Salon Series: Frequently Asked Questions
Why is this leadership series called a “salon” series?
In nineteenth-century Paris, intellectuals in France often gathered in the homes of prominent women where they enjoyed good conversation and art. These “salon” events were the place for wonderful creative energy. This annual series recreates the atmosphere of the Parisian salons — an intimate setting with special people.
What topics are covered?
Each year the salon series features a different theme, with talks by business leaders who represent a variety of strengths and personalities. In 2008, the Young Talent: America’s Promise series showcases the young talent that has the potential to change our world.
Who should come to this series?
This series is opened to both seasoned and emerging leaders and anyone who wants to see the people in their business reach the top.
What is the agenda?
The format for most programs in this series is:
|5:00–6:00||Cocktail reception with speaker and guests|
|6:00–7:00||Speaker and discussion|
See the Salon Series page to confirm the timing of a specific program.
Where is the series held and how do I get there?
Do I need to rsvp? What is the cancellation policy? What happens if the weather is bad?
For these to be intimate gatherings, the number of guests must be kept relatively small. Therefore you will need to rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org early to ensure there is space for you. You can do so for an individual event or for the whole series. If you need to cancel, you should give enough notice that Liz can fill your place. In case of inclement weather, e-mail email@example.com to find out whether the event has been cancelled. Unless it is a blizzard, the event will take place.
What is the charge for the series?
There is no charge. It is a thank you to clients, friends, and colleagues.
Like salon discussions of bygone eras, Liz’s Leadership Salons are intimate, educational, and fun, with great people and great discussion. You’ll hear powerful stories from leaders who exemplify a variety of today’s most important leadership strengths.
