June 2016 NAPW Announcements


Stay current and in-the-know about NAPW announcements, upcoming events, social media and more.

Thank you for Attending PNE
We hope you had a great time networking and being inspired at our recent Power Networking Event in San Jose, CA.

Here are some notable event highlights:

June 2nd – San Jose
Left Bank Brasserie, Santana Row


The setting on Santana Row was gorgeous and the atmosphere was electric! We kicked off the event outdoors at Santana Row Park with networking in the sun led by Didi MacDonald, President of the Walnut Creek Local Chapter.

Everyone worked up their appetites networking, so the group took a break to enjoy a delicious lunch at Left Bank. Cynthia Denny, President of the San Jose Local Chapter introduced the illustrious host of the event, NAPW President Star Jones who moderated “The Power of One” panel.”

Pictured above from left to right: Karie Bennet, Owner, Atelier Salon; Star Jones, President, NAPW; and Robyn Sue Fisher, Owner, Smitten Ice Cream.

“The Power of One”

Exciting, Educational, Inspiring! The panel included two successful entrepreneurs in the local area who shared their personal and professional stories, advice and wisdom. We got to learn all about the beauty industry from Karie Bennet and how her passion for hair began at a very young age. And Robyn Sue Fisher gave us the “scoop” about running an ice cream business and how she patented her own ice cream machine.

Thanks to everyone who attended the San Jose Power Networking Event!
