NAWBO - Chicago Celebration of Achievement Luncheon

 

NAWBO Chicago' s Achievement Luncheon historically attracts more than 500 attendees each year. One reason for this exceptional turn out - the high quality of our keynote speakers. In the past, we have been fortunate to feature women of note such as Oprah Winfrey, USA Network Founder Kay Koplovitz, and Enron whistleblower Lynn Brewer. We will continue this tradition of providing the best to our stakeholders by proudly announcing our 2018 keynote speaker, Christie Hefner.
