After a great event at Morgan’s, we recognize that in a post pandemic world we occasionally need to pivot. 

The TMA NOW is proud to offer the opportunity to attend a virtual fireside chat with the NOW Marquee keynote speaker Lisa Barr, author of ‘Woman on Fire’, moderated by Michelle Novick of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr.  Those of you who attended the event have hopefully had the chance to read your complimentary autographed copy of the book and those who haven’t can still look forward to insightful conversation on Lisa’s journey as a mother, author and more. 

So, grab your colleagues and a cocktail for an interactive discussion with Lisa.
