Yes She Can Event Recap: Girlboss Rally
Wanna know how Girlboss Rally went? Suzanne Brosnan spills it all for those of us who couldn't/didn't/should've sprung for tix.
Overall rating: A-
Good for: Entrepreneurs looking for actionable advice, speaker networking and next steps.
Quality of content: Excellent.
The programming had a very good variety of topics and speakers that ranged from “well known” to not known at all. and at various stages in their business which I LOVED. And all of the presenters were relatable and approachable (except Gwyneth).
The crowd: Beautiful women dressed to impress, age range seemed to be mostly 30s to mid 40s, predominantly white but still pretty diverse. The stats from Sophia: attendees came from 36 states, 230 cities, and 19 countries. It was a good split between fan girls and people actually there to learn because they have their own business.
A major miss: Some logistical issues. There was no map of the venue to help you find the talk you wanted to attend, the schedule had a lot of TBD, they gave us a pen but no notebook to write things down. Lunch was good but the snacks were meh so I was hungry. They ran out of all drinks except water and coffee by lunch time.
Tips for future attendees: Research the speakers beforehand and seek them out in the crowd. Most of them seemed to be there all day and were very approachable. Have questions ready. Bring snacks, a notebook and your game face, or get your makeup done at their makeover beauty bars. Go with or without your friends. It wasn’t like Goop where everyone had a buddy.
Worth the money? Yes.
