A ‘Guest’ is the Guest of Honor

‘Attendees’ are the other Ladies attending the luncheon

 

Q: How do I join the Ladies Who Lunch Community?

A: Join the conversation and receive our newsletter and exclusive content.

Q: How do I RSVP to a luncheon as an Attendee?

A: Go to Events, choose a luncheon you would like to attend, and ‘Request A Seat’.

Q: Does requesting a seat guarantee that I am able to attend?

A: You will receive a confirmation email when your seat has been confirmed.  You will receive an email if the requested luncheon is full and you have been placed on the Waitlist.

Q: How many seats are available at each luncheon?

A: To ensure an intimate lunch setting, there are no more than 8 women in attendance.  We want to make sure you leave feeling truly connected, empowered and inspired. 

Q: Where are the luncheons held?

A: Each luncheon is held at a favorite local restaurant of the Guest’s choice.  Past locations have included On Swann, Carmine’s, J. Alexander’s, 400 Beach and Taphouse, Boca, Edison Food + Drink Lab, Sea Salt, and many others.  We most frequently host the luncheons at Season's 52. 

Q: When and what time is the luncheon held?

A: Always on a Friday!  The time commitment is 11:45 AM – 1:15 PM. 

Q: What should I wear?  

A: Business or business casual attire is required.  

Q: What should I bring?

A: As an Attendee, you should bring questions that are beneficial for the group and your table manners.  Cell phones are not to be used for taking notes because phone use could create the perception that you are not engaged, or even distract others.  A notebook and pen will be provided.

Q:  How should I prepare?

A: Be on time!  Dress appropriately, review the menu in advance, and brush up on dining etiquette if you are unsure.  You are encouraged to use search engines and social media to do your own due diligence! 

Q: What should I expect?

A: We will make introductions, talk about the concept behind On Fridays We Lunch, and begin our discussion with our Guest.  The conversation opens with questions prepared in advance by Attendees and grows organically from there.  The focus is on our Guest’s journey and message to young professional women.  The luncheon is an opportunity to be candid with the goal of making authentic connections, so what happens at On Fridays We Lunch stays at On Fridays We Lunch.  We have a lot to cover in 1.5 hours – it is imperative that everyone is on time. 

Q: What is the cost for Attendees?

A: There is a nonrefundable seat reservation fee of $40, which includes the cost of lunch.

Q: How do I submit the seat reservation fee?

A: PayPal or Venmo.  

For Venmo, use this link: www.venmo.com/OnFridaysWeLunch.  Setting up an account is easy and sending money is free (if you use your PayPal balance or bank account).  If you do not have a PayPal account, visit https://www.paypal.com/us/signup/account and get set up in just a few minutes.

Be sure to choose the option that does not incur fees for On Fridays We Lunch.  From the PayPal website: "Sending money – Personal payments:
There are no fees within the U.S. to send money to family and friends when you use only your PayPal balance or bank account, or a combination of your PayPal balance and bank account.  There is a fee to send money as a personal payment using a debit card or credit card. The fee in the U.S. is 2.9% plus $0.30 USD of the amount you send. For example, if you send $100.00 USD by credit card, the fee would be $3.20 USD ($2.90 + $0.30)."

Q: I received an email confirming my seat.  Now what?

A: We are excited to host you!  You should have received next steps with your seat confirmation.  You have 48 hours after the confirmation email is sent to submit your payment confirming your seat.  If the seat reservation fee of $40 has not been received at that time, we will move you to the Waitlist and offer your seat at the table to someone on the Waitlist.  Please submit everything requested because we'd love to have you join us!

Q: What if I need to cancel?

A: That's okay – things happen.  Please email Rayla@OnFridaysWeLunch.com right away so that someone on the Waitlist can take your seat.  Note that if you have submitted the seat reservation fee and subsequently cancel, the fee is nonrefundable.

Q: What do I need to do if I am a Guest?

A: Pick your favorite local restaurant where we will have the luncheon, provide a full bio (as a Word document) and a headshot (as a .jpg or .png file), and think about the message you want to share with the young professional women who will be attending. 

Q: I am interested in becoming a Sponsor - what should I do?

A: Submit an inquiry here for more information.

Q: After attending a luncheon, how do I provide feedback?

A: You can leave us a message here

Q:  Are men able to join the Ladies Who Lunch Community?

A: Yes, absolutely!  Men have daughters, wives, moms, and female friends, coworkers, and neighbors.  We want them involved and spreading the word.  However, the luncheon is for women only because #WomenHelpingWomen is our focus.

Q: Is there a limit on how many luncheons I can attend?

A: No – we love continued support from our tribe! 

Q: I have a great idea for a Guest – what should I do?

A: Thank you for thinking of us!  We're excited to hear your ideas.  Email their name, contact information, LinkedIn URL and/or bio to Rayla@OnFridaysWeLunch.com.  

Q: I have a great idea for an Attendee – what should I do?
