Lauren Bailey, founder of Factor 8, a national sales training company will be the keynote speaker. 

Bailey has traveled the world to launch inside sales teams, and her corporate experience and clients include SAP, Sony, Waste Management, Grainger, Microsoft and Google. Recognizing that only one in five sales leaders is a woman, and just one in four mid-level sales roles is filled by a female, she also founded #GirlsClub, an intensive nine-month program that connects female protégées with sales mentors and thought leaders designed to elevate them to the next generation of digital sales managers and executives.  

The luncheon is being sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana, b1BANK, Kean Miller LLP, Mercedes Benz of Baton Rouge and Skincare Aesthetics of Baton Rouge. Tickets for the event are $50 each, with tables of 10 available for $500. Get tickets here.
