The Second Annual Working Women’s Luncheon will take place Thursday, November 7th 11:00am – 1:30 pm at The Inn at Longshore. Hosted by The Westport-Weston Chamber of Commerce, the luncheon is designed to celebrate successful women who make a positive difference in business every day. Business owners and professionals from around Fairfield and Westchester counties are invited to come network and learn about the personal and professional experiences of other women in business.
Keynote speaker, Peyton Patterson, President and CEO of Bankwell Financial Group, and CEO of Bankwell, will discuss ‘Being the CEO of Your Life’. A 25-year veteran of the banking industry, she will share her views on what businesses must do to thrive, what women must do to take command of that change, and how the core values her mother taught her are still at the heart of all her personal and professional choices. Her peers in the banking industry have recognized Ms. Patterson many times for her outstanding work in the industry. This year she was named one of the, “Ten Banking CEO’s to Watch” by American Banker and in 2008 the same publication named her ‘Community Banker of the Year.’
