Wine + Networking with Women Sales Leaders in San Francisco
PowerToFly capped off a busy July by gathering together women sales leaders in San Francisco for an evening of networking, presentations and wine.
Held at Monroe (one of our favorite spots) and hosted by PowerToFly's Amanda Bender, the event featured presentations by two impressive companies (that are both hiring!): Morning Consult, who are revolutionizing ways to collect, organize, and share survey, and Knotel, who are transforming the way we work through their Agile HQ™ Platform.
This special evening was bookend with plenty of opportunities for our guests to network with leaders from Morning Consult and Knotel, as well as each other, over light bites and delicious wine.
