A GREAT SUCCESS!!
Thank you to everyone for making last Thursday’s POWER Culinary Connections event an amazing success! A new and different format, and the reviews of having it at KINGS Cooking Studio were RAAAAVE! Thank you to Judy Spires, CEO of KINGS, for opening your kitchen to us, and to Theresa Merges, Joette and Ernie for orchestrating such a great experience!
Special thanks to Marie Robinson, Chief Operating Officer AND Chief Transformational Officer for Capri Holdings, for joining us as our POWER Culinary Connections guest. Marie’s story, from ‘BAMA’ to her US Army tour, from Walmart to her current role at a $6 Billion+ fashion company representing three iconic brands: Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo and Versace is inspiring!
Thank you to my sponsors, without whom I could not make this happen: Vince Egan, Benjamin Edwards, our WINE SPONSOR, Peter Cirignano, Peapack Gladstone Bank, Wendy Taffet, Enjou Chocolat (wow on the specialty chocolate Choo Shoes and the Versace and MK coins), Ken Krysinski and Vic Ventura of Socialfix for all of the great videos and photography, and to our NEWEST SPONSOR, Paula Ferreira of MAZARS USA, a global audit, accounting, advisory, tax and legal services firm.

SAVE THE DATE
As usual, I am already planning our three upcoming Course Connections events, which will be held Thursdays: May 30th, July 25th and September 26th at Montclair Golf Club.
We meet at 3pm, have a warm-up and instruction before playing a NO PRESSURE 9-hole scramble. Cocktails, lite bites and NETWORKING on the terrace follow! NEWBIES WELCOME. Come for golf and networking or JUST NETWORKING.
And if you would like to sponsor one or the package of 3 golf events, I am always looking to expand our reach! Sponsorships are wonderful institutional advertising, (PLUS I become YOUR sponsor) and AFFORDABLE, so don’t be afraid to inquire! Actively seeking a law firm to add to our list of great sponsors! You can email or call me for more info!
THANK YOU AGAIN!

“Great event last night, truly. Thank you! When I hit the road and sat in the driving rain and traffic coming from Newark, I thought about how nice it would be to go home! Boy am I glad that I made the commitment to you (and to me) to come because I would have missed a wonderful time meeting great folks.”
