Hope you all had a great Halloween! On to the next holiday!

Just a quick thank you to everyone who attended our fantastic Girl Talks events last month. Both our New York City and San Francisco events were huge successes, with great “girl talk” presentations from a variety of interesting women in retail. I just love the energy in the room at these events; you can feel camaraderie in the air and connections being made. And, perhaps most importantly, everyone always has a good time!

Please keep your eyes and ears open over the next several weeks as we’ll be posting coverage from these events right here in the Inner Circle. We have some great podcast episodes, videos, photos and articles lined up, and we’re so excited to share them with you!

We won’t be hosting any Girl Talks events again until next fall, but we’re planning some meet-ups in cities around the U.S. in January. We’ll be posting information about these events right here as soon as we nail down all the details. Stay tuned!

Also, I wanted to remind you all that the Women in Retail Leadership Circle has officially launched “Forums” on the members-only section of its website. The “Forums” provide the opportunity for retailer-only members to ask questions and post jobs in the safety and privacy of other retailer-only members. Check it out!

Until next week!
