Lonergan Partners was a proud sponsor of the San Francisco outing of the first ever Women in Wireless six-city international event that took the world by storm on September 8th, 2011, in the cities of New York, San Francisco, London, Toronto, Edmonton, and Calgary with over 450 female leaders in attendance.
The event, in honor of Mobile Marketing Week, brought together the crème de la crème in mobile and digital media to celebrate another successful and exciting year in the industry. With cocktails and appetizers in hand, attendees mixed and mingled with executives, building connections and participating in a special speed networking event.
New York City—where Women in Wireless headquarters is based — kicked off the event at the glamorous Thompson Hotel Rooftop Bar (sponsored by MobileFuse) with Co-founder Veronika Sonsev introducing Women in Wireless as an organization ‘focused on empowering and developing female leaders in the mobile & digital space.’
The organization’s second Co-founder Charlotte Fors, headed the San Francisco event with a stunning view of the harbor at La Mar, sponsored by Lonergan Partners, Smaato, and PayFone.
London’s event (sponsored by GSMA & Diffusion Mobile) held the first cross-continental Women in Wireless event at the GSMA Member’s Lounge with close to a hundred in attendance.
Toronto, the first of three Canadian events, brought together the city’s growing number of female executives in the mobile industry at The Spoke Club, sponsored by Olson & Maritz Canada. Edmonton & Calgary’s boasted impressive numbers as well, proving that the need for an organization like Women in Wireless is evident.
