Everything You Missed at Our Los Angeles WorkParty Tour Stop


The WorkParty tour has officially kicked off!

Our first stop on the road was none other than our home, Los Angeles. And, as always, our girls turned out! We teamed up with Microsoft Teams to bring our guests a WorkParty like no other. As you already know, LA is home to some of the most creative female entrepreneurs and businesswomen killing the game right now. 

The event was hosted at WeWork Pacific Design Center, and our amazing panelists shared how they brought their own work parties to life. Keep on reading for the tips, tricks and tools we learned about last night.

The first WorkParty tour stop had a roster of badass panelists who left our audience feeling inspired and ready to take on the business world. Our panel included Justina Blakeney, Sophia Rossi, Whitney Leigh Morris, and Hillary Kerr. Ahead, a few takeaways from the conversation with Jaclyn.

It wouldn’t be a WorkParty if we didn’t have our guests get involved with our friends at Microsoft Teams. We had an interactive booth, where attendees took a quick quiz to learn what kind of team member they are: the influencer, the heart, or the collaborator. It was important for our guests to learn more about Microsoft Teams and how it could help their workflow and overall business. The WorkParty team used the collaboration tool to plan the entire tour.

The ladies in attendance also sipped on some bubbly, courtesy of Chandon, while mingling with each other and as Jaclyn signed some books. There was also Crispin cider on deck, which is the perfect drink as we head into fall.
