The Knockturnal attended an intimate panel and reception celebrating Meredith Fineman’s best-selling book “Brag Better: Master the Art of Fearless Self-Promotion.” In order to emphasize and explore the book’s themes of empowerment, confidence, and personal success, the panel highlighted the accomplishments and attitudes of the high-profile participants, riddled with entertaining and inspiring anecdotes.
Panelists included The Jane Club Founder and Actress June Diane Raphael, Comedian and Actress Lauren Lapkus, La Detresse Co-Founder Alana Hadid, House Party Creative Founder Tylynn Burns, Actress and Comedian Jackie Johnson, along with Fineman moderating the later half of the discussion.
The camaraderie between the panelists was fundamental to the flow of the conversation, celebrating each other’s accomplishments while also recognizing and celebrating their own, in the “Brag Better” spirit.
The event was hosted by Holloway House in West Hollywood, a beautiful rooftop venue overlooking the LA skyline. To accommodate the unexpectedly cold evening, staff handed out blankets, which added to the already-cozy discussion atmosphere. Veuve Clicquot, appetizers, and charcuterie bites were available to snack on as guests mingled, and Meredith Fineman signed copies of “Brag Better.”
