C-Sweet Events

Where Executive Women Can Meet Their Peers.

With a focus on  Fortune 1000 and fast growth companies, C-Sweet produces exclusive educational networking events for female executives.

Our programs feature panels and keynote speakers, both live and virtual.  Our mixers take place in some of the most beautiful locations in the Southern California and New York areas.

The C-Sweet steering committee has actively produced events in tech and finance since 1998.  Our distribution list includes thousands of female executives across industries.

That's our secret. We know how to craft events that appeal to working executive women because we are working executive women.

    Stop the Torture! (Performance Evaluations) 

    Tuesday, December 6th,12 PM PST

    Never Give or Get Another Employee Performance Evaluation

    Increase Profits, Productivity, Morale, and Loyalty


    Performance Evaluations cost the organization a lot of money, reduce productivity to a standstill for weeks, and destroy the morale of top performers for a minimum of three months.

    In this presentation, you will learn:

    • Why organizations have stopped doing performance evaluations.
    • What small-to-huge organizations are doing instead to motivate all employees.

    Even if you are NOT performing employee evaluations, learn an amazing motivation technique that you, your supervisors, and your employees will love. It’s simple, easy and costs nothing!
