Portlandia Club Luncheon August 2018

11:30 am - 1:15 pm
111 SW 5th Ave

“What do you do when the hum (of satisfying work) tastes like dust?” – Shonda Rhimes

Our August luncheon will be a thought-provoking springboard into fall and new beginnings. We will begin by watching a TED talk delivered by America television producer, screenwriter, and author Shonda Rhimes. She is best known as the creator, head writer and executive producer of the television medical drama Grey’s Anatomy, its spin-off Private Practice, and the political thrill series Scandal, among others. In 2007, she was named one of TIME magazine’s 100 People Who Help Shape the World. In 2015, she published her first book, a memoir: Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun, and Be your Own Person. In August of 2017 Netflix said it had entered into a multi-year developmental deal with Rhimes by which all of her future Shondaland productions will be Netflix Original series.

Join us for a viewing of this inspiring TED talk and join in further discussion of how the power of “yes” can work in our own lives, business and personal, as we head into the busyness of Fall.

  1. A credit will be held and applied to the following month’s lunch but will not be held longer.  The credit must be used by the original payee and cannot be passed on to another person.  This will be tracked by the registrar and reported to the Treasurer.
