The AWARD-WINNING Hollywood Networking Breakfast was founded on the Paramount Studios Lot by Sandra Lord in 1993 as a means to providing networking, employment and opportunities of access for industry professionals and aspirants. We serve a diverse, multicultural constituency.

Voted the "Best Networking Event in L.A." by Backstage in its "Best of L.A." issue, the breakfast has proven to be a VALUABLE resource for attendees. The event has facilitated ACCESS as well as many collaborations and employment opportunities. Our attendees have gotten writing and producing partners, paid writing assignments, financing, auditions, general meetings, agents, managers, attorneys AND employment. Our attendees also have opportunities to meet privately with participating event speakers.

IN ADDITION, we are known to have the BEST SPEAKERS in town. Since 1993, the event has featured studio and independent company heads, as well as top Hollywood professionals, including Academy®, Emmy®, Golden Globe and Peabody Award winners and nominees.

Our esteemed guest speaker listincludes: Ron Meyer, Paula Wagner, Nancy Utley, Mark Sourian & Christine Birch, John Singleton, John Lee Hancock, Laura Ziskin, Tom Ortenberg, Wes Craven, Stan Lee, Lynda Obst, Penny Marshall, Craig Zadan & Neil Meron, Reuben Cannon, J.C. Spink, Mike Medavoy, David E. Kelley, Sarah Finn, April Webster, Greg Berlanti, Anthony Zuiker, Kevin Hooks, Ron Schwary, Ashok Amritraj, Garry Marshall, Henry Winkler, Marty Katz, James Burrows, Peter Block, Jeremy Zimmer, Wes Craven, Simon Kinberg, George Tillman & Bob Teitel, John Sacret Young, Mario Van Peebles, among many, many others. This is a FUN, inspiring event where our guest speakers always have a great time – so much that some have spoken more than once!
