We were honored when Brenda was invited to join the 3rd annual Executive Women’s Day event by Paragon Bank, which took place October 11th at Prestonwood Country Club. Sponsored by SAS, the event coincides with the SAS Golf Championship each year and features a panel of businesswomen delivering testimonies of empowerment from personal experiences with hardships and successes. Brenda joined Patsy Johnson and Kristin Sutton at the Paragon Bank table for a fun filled day of networking and motivating presentations, which was hosted by Debra Morgan of WRAL.

This year’s panel included UNC’s School of Government Director Anita Brown-Graham, Ernst & Young Assurance Partner and Carolina Market Leader Amy Baker, and Blue Cross Blue Shield Director of Brand Strategy and Integrated Marketing Reagan Greene Pruitt. The keynote speaker was Molly Barker, Founder of Girls on the Run and other successful non-profits that ultimately help people connect by encouraging compassion, intentional listening and understanding, and love.

Brenda thoroughly enjoyed sharing her experience and stories with this group of fellow Triangle business leading women during the luncheon and networking hour, and they had a bit of fun cutting up as well!
