Peyton Patterson, of New Canaan, the president and CEO of Bankwell Financial Group and the CEO of Bankwell, is the keynote speaker at the second annual Working Women's Luncheon Thursday, Nov. 7. The luncheon, hosted by the Westport-Weston Chamber of Commerce, takes place from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The Inn at Longshore, 260 Compo Road South. Westport.

Patterson will discuss "Being the CEO of Your Life." A 25-year veteran of the banking industry, Patterson will share her views on what businesses must do to thrive, what women must do to take command of that change and how the core values her mother taught her are still at the heart of all her personal and professional choices.

This year, she was named one of the "10 Banking CEOs to Watch" by American Banker, and in 2008, the same publication named her "Community Banker of the Year."

Sponsors include Bankwell, Aetna, Advantage Payroll Services, Indulge by Mersene and Moffley Media.
