2018 was a fabulous year for CoveyClub virtual salons (or webinars). We engaged an amazing group of experts in discussions of everything from anti-aging beauty tips to how and why women refuse to hold onto power. So much important information was imparted during these virtual meetups (which we do over Zoom) that we decided to share some of the best recordings with you. Watch these below (or listen while you cook!) and learn interesting, nuanced insights that you can use right now. Let us know what you’d like to hear about next in a future Coffee & Conversation. And check out our Events page to sign up for new upcoming Coffee & Conversations.
