April 17 – Palo Alto

Village Global is bringing together two of our luminaries — Sara Blakely and Reid Hoffman — in a special event moderated by Lisa Skeete Tatum, a Village Network Leader and Founder and CEO of Landit. Sara, Founder and CEO of Spanx, says “People have often asked me what’s the best thing about being a girl in business, and what’s been the hardest? My answer is the same… being underestimated.

That’s why we’re calling this event Underestimated.


9:30 – 10:00  Tea, coffee, welcome, and mingling.

10:00 – 11:00  Fireside chat with Village Luminaries, Sara and Reid, moderated by Lisa.

11:00 – 12:00  Small-group moderated conversations over brunch.

12:00 – 12:45  TED-talk style speakers including Sophia Amoruso and Kat Cole on being underestimated and the invaluable lessons drawn from those experiences.
