This year, in honor of WithIt’s 20th anniversary, student educational scholarships were awarded to women studying to be a part of the design industry. One of these recipients was our youngest team member, Hannah Carlton. This June, she had the pleasure of being flown out to the WithIt 2017 Annual Professional Women’s Conference for the Home and Furnishings Industries, in Charleston, SC. Here she had the opportunity to listen to many keynote speakers, given by influential women in the industry. The impressive list included Eleanor Beaton, President and CEO of Impact & Influence for Women, Carol Sankar, author of The Confidence Factor For Women in Business, Lynne Jensen-Nelson, Conversion-omics Sales Training, and many more influential interior designers, decorators and home furnishing industry icons.
Las Vegas Market boasts of wonderful events, happening parties and of course great design. We told you about our team’s favorite moments of LVMKT here, but we definitely need to elaborate on the amazing opportunity Lisa had to speak as part of the WithIt panel featuring social media celebrities at the Somerton Dwelling showroom at Las Vegas Market earlier this month. As a team, we’ve attended some pretty fantastic events hosted by The Media Matters – one being a farm to table dinner at the Woodard Furniture showroom along with elite editors from various publications during High Point Market last April.
