Women's Speak 2.0

This event has been reformatted to a sit-down meal with the hopes that we can increase the interaction between successful community members and business students. Partners will be seated at each table with business students to give them the opportunity to discuss their career trials and tribulations. This event has historically been extremely successful in engaging both students and members of the community and is a demonstration of the TBSA's unique approach to business.

Each student pays to get in and receives “TBSA dollars” to use to play at our many casino games, such as poker, blackjack and roulette. At the end of the night, there is an auction for prizes, where students bid with the money they’ve won over the night.

Last year our attendance rose from 60 guests, to over 150 with nothing but positive feedback about everything from location to prizes. Your sponsorship will go towards purchasing prizes for the winners, promotional material for the event, printing for the event, food for the event, etc.
