The concept of HGEN evolved out of the popular Hollywood Networking Breakfast™ (aka the Hollywood Breakfast™), a powerful monthly networking event, which was also founded by Lord in 1993 at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Over the years, the Hollywood Networking Breakfast.™   has provided attendees with access to some of Hollywood's most powerful players and has also facilitated numerous collaborations and employment opportunities. Attendees have come from the movie studios, network television, independent production companies, film commissions, record companies, talent guilds and unions and entertainment-based organizations.
