with hosts of Levo League Los Angeles
Let's build the kind of leadership that supports one another as we climb up together. LEVO hosts a night of female leadership - how to own it and how to manage it. It's not easy being a leader or choosing to become one but when you surround yourself with powerful, genuine beings, things just seem to fall into place for your mission.
what is a jig+saw talk?
These talks are not your average congregation of people. Talks are about hyper-focusing on a core topic that keeps our businesses moving. These are built on two-hour segments, led by a host + JIG+SAW Founder Christina, in an open forum. What does that mean? We want to encourage more communication in your circle/tribe/posse/crew (whatever you call yours) and these talks create that open environment for more sharing and more insight. These talks will NOT be about listening to someone speak for two hours; it's about learning and contributing to the conversation + topic at hand. You'll not only leave with educational insight on the topic but you'll have a stronger grasp at your community around you, what you're really capable of and how important it is to come together.
