This year we are honored to have CHRISTIE HEFNER as our Keynote Speaker!

Join us at the table on May 1, 2018 to celebrate the achievements of our exceptional members and the dynamic NAWBO Chicago chapter.

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.

 
From 1988-2008, Christie Hefner was Chairman and CEO of Playboy Enterprises, Inc., making her the longest serving female CEO of a U.S. public company.  During her tenure, she oversaw policy, management, and strategy in all areas.  Hefner restructured the company, initiating its highly successful electronic and international expansions, including leading the company onto the Internet, making Playboy the first national magazine on the web.  She also greatly expanded the leveraging of the Playboy brand via licensing, generating close to $1 billion in annual global retail sales, 80% of them in women’s products.  When she left, over 40% of her executives were women.  For three years she was named to FORTUNE’s list of the 100 Most Powerful Women.
 
She now has a portfolio of business activities which includes serving as Chairman of Hatch Beauty, a brand and product innovation company in the personal care space; on the advisory board of the RDO Companies, a $3 billion family owned agricultural conglomerate; and as an advisor to Hint’d a digital startup.  Previously, she served as Executive Chairman of Canyon Ranch Enterprises, a new division of the renowned wellness lifestyle company created to extend the Canyon Ranch brand via media and business partnerships.  
 
She is also on the board of the D.C. based Center for American Progress Action, the leading progressive public policy thinks tank and for over 20 years, she has served on the board of Trustees for Rush University Medical Center.  She was a founding member of The Chicago Network, The Committee of 200, and the Chicago Chapter of Women Corporate Directors, and she was the first woman elected into the Chicago Chapter of the Young Presidents’ Organization.  She also serves on the board of advisors for Springboard since 2007, which coaches women entrepreneurs, particularly in the tech space and has raised over $6 billion for women run companies.
