Moira Conlon to Speak at the 2016 Los Angeles Business Journal Women's Summit

The Los Angeles Business Journal is excited to host the Los Angeles Business Journal Women's Summit. Building off the success of our event for 23 years, this year the Business Journal will curate several forum discussions that will begin with a breakfast and progress through a series of speakers. Our attendees will have an opportunity to be inspired by local women executives sharing their expertise in wealth, wellness and wisdom. We have 22 dynamic women speakers confirmed. The afternoon portion will be highlighted by an awards luncheon where we will be honoring outstanding achievements in business by women throughout Los Angeles County.
