Overview & History 

 

The Hollywood Networking Breakfast, is a fun, very popular monthly event, which has proven to be an exceptional and crucial networking vehicle for entertainment industry professionals and aspirants.  The Breakfast has provided attendees with access to some of Hollywood's most powerful players and has facilitated numerous collaborations and employment opportunities.  The first monthly networking studio event of its kind, the Breakfast has proudly served as the blueprint for all other subsequent similar industry events.

 

This innovative program is the brainchild of HGEN founder, Sandra Lord, who created the event in 1993 on the Paramount Studios lot.  For over 10 years, the Hollywood Networking Breakfast has featured an impressive list of top Hollywood players and professionals. Past speakers include Academy Award, Emmy Award, Golden Globe, Directors Guild and Peabody Award winning producers, directors, writers, and others such as, Paula Wagner, Penny Marshall, Mike Medavoy, Garry Marshall, Laura Ziskin, Tom Ortenberg, Lynda Obst, James Burrows, Phil Rosenthal, Dayna Kalins Bochco, David E. Kelley, Wes Craven, Tom Gutteridge, Janet Zucker, Marta Kauffman, Chris Moore, Thomas Carter, Reuben Cannon, Melissa Gilbert,  Henry Winkler, Jonathan Prince, Kevin Hooks, Marty Katz, Moctezuma Esparza, Paris Barclay, Thomas Schlamme,  Jeremy Zimmer, George Tillman & Bob Teitel, Tom Arnold, Michael Grillo, Bo Zenga, Roy Campanella II, and many others. Guest speakers have such a great time, that some have spoken more than once!

Ms. Lord initially introduced and produced the event under the auspices of Women in Film, but now produces the event in Los Angeles to benefit Changing Images in America (Chia), a nonprofit organization she founded in 1996 to promote diversity in American culture.  Lord produces the event outside Los Angeles through HGEN.
