BCD – Luminaries

Executive Women

Bringing female managers together to share experiences and knowledge, develop networks and receive support in a welcoming and relaxed environment.


Luminaries –  a person who has attained eminence in his or her field or is an inspiration to others.

behind closed doors Luminaries offers female executives of the future the opportunity to further expand their leadership and management skills. The membership is best suited for women in a management position either managing staff or stakeholders.
