Influential Women In Business Luncheon features ESPN sportscaster from Roscoe
The annual Influential Women In Business Luncheon is back in person at the Eclipse Center on Sept. 21, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Now in its 4th year, the luncheon is a collaboration between Edward Jones, the Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce, and the Stateline Chamber of Commerce, with an awards ceremony honoring three local businesswomen. The theme is "Having It All: What It Means to Have YOUR All."
This year’s keynote speaker is Nicole Briscoe, an anchor on ESPN's Sports Center and the mother of two daughters. She is a Roscoe native and attended Hononegah Community High School. A graduate of Northern Illinois University, she began her broadcast career at WREX-TV.
Before joining ESPN, Nicole's career took her to Indiana, first as a general assignment reporter and then as a sports reporter in Indianapolis, where she began covering the Indianapolis 500.
Nicole hosted NASCAR Now for ESPN from 2008-2014 and married racing driver Ryan Briscoe in 2009. Nicole was recently featured in People magazine.
The luncheon is expected to sell out, as it has in previous years. Current attendance limit at the venue is 500 guests. You can register on EventBrite.
Limited sponsorships are still available.
