 Is this your moment?

FunFerence is a call to arms (or better yet, hugs and high-fives) for every Dame driven by the core desires to:

  • Elevate her business or career to the next level through a flurry of actionable insights and inspiration
  • Cultivate connections that transcend the transactional in an environment that feels like home (but better)
  • Embrace and frankly heal from the entrepreneurial journey with laughter, joy, and a dash of Dames’ flair.

The Magic of FunFerence, Explained...

Elevate, Celebrate, Repeat

Between our VIP growth accelerator on day one and the main lineup of carefully curated workshops and panels that encompass day two, you’ll walk away from this event with strategies, reframes, actionable roadmaps, and momentum.

 

Past attendees will tell you they took pages and pages of notes and were never once bored. (There’s a reason we don’t call it a conference.)

 

FunFerence is where your journey accelerates joyfully.

Deep Connections that Count (and Feel Like Family!)

Far beyond the business card, you’ll find the heart of The Dames FunFerence - connections that resonate on a soul level. Previous years’ events saw countless collaborations, referrals, and honest-to-goodness friendships (among introverts and extroverts alike!). And this year, we’ve built in even more opportunities to meet, mingle, and mastermind.

 

FunFerence is where your network expands, not just with contacts but with companions.

Escape your Day-to-Day Duties

It can be challenging to walk away from your business for multiple days. That’s why we create the agenda for your “figure-it-all-out-fest” to be as transformational and pleasurable as possible.

 

From our lively group dinners to our cozy small group brainstorming sessions, FunFerence is designed to refuel you.

 

FunFerence is where you’ll slow down, speed up, or spin out something new as needed.

FunFerence is yours to shape and savor. 

 

If you’re growth-minded and hungry for new skills…

Join us for The VIP Mastermind Experience, featuring mastermind-workshop-style sessions tailored to your revenue, company size, or leadership position. You’ll receive insights and support specific to your professional growth journey and goals. (Facilitators and other details will be announced as they are finalized!)

You’ll love our “Better Together” dinner party, which is equal parts enlightening and uproarious (and yet somehow introvert-friendly). For the remainder of FunFerence, expert Dames will keep your brainstorming on point between bursts of connection.

We took your feedback to heart and have created even more opportunities for 1:1 and small group time.

 

Even if you just really want to get out of your office…

Did we mention The Halcyon has a gorgeous, heated rooftop pool? A lovely cocktail menu? Extraordinary restaurants on the first floor and around the block? A front desk that will make fancy coffee drinks for you? Yeah. It’s our favorite escape for a reason.


If you’re ready to strut into your next level with clarity, strategy, and sisterly support - we wholeheartedly invite you to join us.

"How will the VIP Masterminds be grouped?"

We're glad you asked! In addition to plenty of "everybody, all together time," our programming is grouped with your goals and growth in mind:

If you’re currently earning $100-250K annually:

You'll experience facilitated training and masterminding in Marketing, Sales, Cash Flow, HR and growing beyond your current team, and more.

Whether you aspire to smash the $250k ceiling and scale, or to double down on the lifestyle business of your dreams, this is the room for you.

If you’re joining us at the $250K+ annual level:

You'll be learning from facilitators running companies above the $7-figure mark.

You'll choose sessions ranging from Operations, Sales & Marketing, Accounting & Finance, and Human Resources and mastermind in small groups at your level ($500K, $1M, Business Leader, etc.).

What participants said (anonymously!) about last year’s FunFerence…

  • "One of the best events I've ever attended. The support, encouragement, vulnerability plus real tactics I can implement now were spot on."
  • "I had an absolutely amazing time and transformational experience! I will be highly recommending the Dames and the FunFerence to every female business owner I know. Just loved it and am grateful to Meghann and everyone involved in the planning and execution of the event."
  • "Really phenomenal experience. I loved meeting every woman in person and connecting in authentic ways."
  • "The sessions were amazing. The presentations top notch!"
  • "I learned so many valuable things I can immediately apply to my business that'll help take it to the next level! Yay!"
  • "Loved how everyone focused on delivering action-oriented insights."
  • "I truly loved the entire experience. I only wish we could have had more, I was learning so much and having such a great time, it was over too quickly. :)"
  • "Everything was well run with adequate breaks. Food was great. The meeting space and hotel were awesome. Really nice mix of fun and great information."
  • "Keep up the reverse mullet. This was a fabulous blend of fun and learning."

We also heard you when you told us you want more 1:1 and small group time, group dinners, and longer breaks.
