Jeanne Stafford’s Networking Dinner with Candace Bushnell



The name Candace Bushnell is synonymous with New York City and strong women with chutzpah and on October 23rd, she will be my guest speaker at Jeanne Stafford’s Networking Dinner.

I was introduced to Candance through another kindred spirit, Dian Griesel who will be a future speaker and I’m thrilled Candace said YES!

At my dinner we talk about communication and share the pioneering ways the people amongst us are changing the way we think.  Candance Bushnell uses what seems like an effortless ability to capture the essence of our dreams and struggles and create a way forward.  When I read her articles and books, I learn more about myself and the women and men I encounter in my life in New York.

From Sex and the City through eight successive novels, Bushnell has revealed a gift for tapping into the zeitgeist of any New York minute.

The Guardian Newspaper sums up Bushnell’s work this way: “She caustically addresses the conditions of materialism, cramped urban life, and metropolitan speed, where fame and wealth are all around, but never in one’s grasp . . . . Bushnell is courageous in bringing this to the fore, and she is blessed with an Austen-like mastery in doing so. She cuts through the lies that women tell themselves about the surface equality of Western society. As such, she has much more in common with Edith Wharton, Dorothy Parker and early Bret Easton Ellis.”

She began writing for the New York Observer in 1993; in November of 1994 she created the column Sex and the City, which ran in the New York Observer for two years. The column was bought as a book in 1995, and sold to HBO as a series in 1996. Bushnell hosted a radio show on Sirius Satellite Radio, called Sex, Success, and Sensibility, which aired from October 2006 to October 2008. She wrote and created a web series, The Broadroom, starring Jennie Garth, which launched in September 2009.

Through her books and television series, Bushnell’s work has influenced and defined two generations of women.  On October 23rd she will listen to your questions and I’ll facilitate our time together.
