Marcum Women’s Forum Coming to San Francisco; Erin Brockovich Will Keynote Event Dedicated to Smart Choices for Savvy Women

New York City, NY – Marcum LLP, a top national accounting and advisory firm noted for its market-leading conferences, announced today it will be bringing the annual Marcum Women’s Forum to San Francisco for the first time on October 20. Geared to high net worth and executive women, the breakfast event features nationally prominent speakers on topics essential to women’s personal and professional well-being.

Entitled Safe and Sound: Smart Choices for Savvy Women, Marcum’s San Francisco forum will feature the program originally presented in New York City, with environmental activist Erin Brockovich, president of Brockovich Research & Consulting, as the keynote speaker. Her topic will be Having a Voice in Our Health. Jeanne Rizzo, president of Breast Cancer Prevention Partners, also returns by popular demand, speaking on Cancer Prevention and Public Policy, which focuses on the hidden health impacts of common consumer products. In addition, a panel on Women Traveling Alone.

“We fully expect the Marcum Women’s Forum in San Francisco to be standing-room-only, as it was in New York. It’s an outstanding program for women who move fluidly in the business world and in the world at large. The speakers literally had trouble leaving because the audience simply did not want to let them go,” said Marcum Partner Karen Connair, who will chair the event.

The Marcum Women’s Forum will be held at the Palace Hotel at 2 New Montgomery Street, San Francisco, from 8:00 AM til 11:30 AM. To register and for more information, visit www.marcumevents.com.

It was conceived by the Marcum Family Wealth Services Group, which is dedicated to helping clients manage their wealth, plan for its transfer to succeeding generations, accomplish their lifetime objectives, and achieve their philanthropic goals.
