    Join waitlist

    A note from your host: In the 1870s, the first boathouse was constructed on the eastern shore of Central Park's lake by Park co-designer Calvert Vaux. Since then, the Central Park Boathouse has been one of the Park's most iconic structures and popular destinations. Today, it is a recently re-opened and re-envisioned restaurant with idyllic views and a varied American menu. Join WMG co-President Jennifer A. Perry there for a summer luncheon to learn more about the history of Central Park (where Jennifer is a volunteer tour guide) and to meet other WMG members, surrounded by one of Manhattan's most photographed spots. 

    WMG’s small group gatherings are a long-standing tradition and remain one of our most popular program series. This is a wonderful way to facilitate meaningful connections among members. If there is a cost involved in this event, it will be shared equitably amongst attendees. This could mean paying for your own meal at a restaurant or contributing equally to any collective costs, such as wine, that benefit the group as a whole. If you have any specific questions, please reach out to the host directly. All member contact information can be found in the Member Directory.

    This event is in-person at the Central Park Boathouse, Manhattan.

    Understanding the best way to sell your services is essential for your success, whether you’re an agent, editor, publicist, or any type of consultant, freelancer or business owner.


    Don’t miss this career-changing Lunch & Learn featuring Julia Pimsleur, founder of Million Dollar Women. Julia will provide a deep dive into the strategies needed to consistently get prospective clients to say YES. She'll help you understand why some of your sales are closing and others aren’t, and provide five key strategies to get to yes more often. 


    You’ll also learn about:

    • The psychology of sales
    • The one thing all sales pros do, and
    • How to turn maybe or no into YES

    This is a ✏️WMG Lunch & Learn✏️ event! WMG Lunch & Learns are part of a series of midday events designed to help you learn, grow, and connect in only 60 minutes. This presentation is fully interactive to give participants opportunities to share their voices. 


    About the speaker:  

    Julia Pimsleur is a scaling coach, sales trainer, speaker, bestselling author and the Founder of Million Dollar Women, a New York City-based social venture, which has helped thousands of women entrepreneurs scale up their businesses. Julia’s passion for working with women entrepreneurs grew out of her own experiences of feeling isolated building her first business, Little Pim. She ultimately joined communities, hired mentors, and grew Little Pim from a $30,000 investment into a multimillion-dollar VC-backed company, which she sold. Her website is www.millionwomen.com.


    All proceeds from this event support the Women's Media Group Educational Foundation.


    Refunds available up to 24 hours before the event. No refunds for cancellations made within 24 hours of the event.
