The WorkParty Tour Just Hit the Bay Area!


We traveled up north for our second WorkParty tour stop in San Francisco. And, the Bay Area ladies turned out! We teamed up with Microsoft Teams to bring our guests a WorkParty like no other. As you already know, SF is home to some of the most badass women in tech, startups, and so much more. 

The event was hosted at WeWork Embarcadero 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 second WorkParty tour stop featured a conversation with Emily Schuman of Cupcakes & Cashmere. She dished on how she made the leap from her 9-5 job to follow her passion, why she’s so open with her audience online, entrepreneurship, and so much more. Scroll ahead for some of the biggest takeaways from the conversation.

Mic-Drop Moments

“Anything that is really valuable that you’re trying to do has some risk in it.”

“Being proactive and showing people what you can bring to the table is very important.”

“I went from assistant to CEO, and missed that learning curve when you’re going up the corporate ladder.”

“Showing some form of realness online is what people want.”

“When looking at other people’s feeds, the glossy, perfect stuff is not appealing anymore.”

“Whether I’m talking about my anxiety or my struggles with breastfeeding, opening up to this amazing community of women has been one of the most rewarding things.”

“To start out in such a crowded marketplace, it depends on the type of content you’re putting out, and it’s important to find what you’re best at.”

“To be an entrepreneur in 2018 you need a strong work ethic.”

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.
