Women on Course 2015

Monday, June 29, 2015
Lake Forest, Illinois

William Blair, in conjunction with LPGA golf professional Jamie Fischer, hosted its second annual Women on Course event for women to use the venue of golf—where business is often conducted—to discuss best practices in financial management strategies while building relationships. This year’s theme, “Empowering You on the Fairways and in Finance,” featured keynote speaker Judy Rankin, LPGA and World Golf Hall of Fame member and a pioneering broadcaster and lead commentator for ESPN/ABC and Golf Channel. The morning of the event, which was held at Conway Farms in Lake Forest, featured presentations and discussions about entrepreneurship, personal financial strategies, and a global economic perspective by Olga Bitel, William Blair’s economist. The event was a collaboration with several other women executives who hosted employees and clients of their firms to reinforce the networking and business focus in a golf environment.  Attendees then had an opportunity to join other executive-level women from the Chicago area for nine holes of golf or a hands-on clinic at the practice range with six former LPGA players as their instructors.
