SOS Hosts First Table for 6 Event
Society of Saleswomen hosts saleswomen from local companies to "Dine and Discuss" topics over dinner.
[SANTA MONICA, CA]: Society of Saleswomen hosted their first Table For 6 event at Del Frisco's in Santa Monica on Thursday, December 5, 2019.
“Table For 6 is meant to be a small, intimate networking event where women in sales can connect and discuss issues relative to their roles,” says Cindy Truong, Founding Member at Society of Saleswomen. “Women in sales and sales leadership roles have many overlapping concerns, challenges and successes, and this is a place to discuss and share best practices.”
"I like the intimacy of a small group event which allows each member's voice and contribution to the conversation to be heard in an open and judgement-free environment. Larger groups can be intimidating," says one of the Table For 6 attendees, a sales representative from Patch, a technology company based in Santa Monica.
Table For 6 Events are one of many types of events Society of Saleswomen is looking to cultivate. The event on December 5, covered topics like:
• How to be assertive without coming across as aggressive
• Internal and Client facing implications of assertiveness as women
• Transitioning into new sales roles
This is the first of such events for Society of Saleswomen. Another Table For 6 event is scheduled for January 23, 2020, with new topics to be discussed. The location of the events will rotate around the Los Angeles geography; with plans to expand to other cities in late 2020. Other events include, networking, online course, and workshops.
About Table For 6: Table For 6™ meals are a "Dine and Discuss" experience for a total of six participants. Each event will take place at a restaurant, and a main topic will be up for discussion, with a Society of Saleswomen facilitator. The event focuses on conversation, insights, and discussion around timely topics while dining at a restaurant.
