On Wednesday, I participated in a panel at Pepsico’s digital media summit. The panel was called “Social Mom: What Mom is Talking About in the Value – Focused Economy”. I’m not really going to go into the specifics since it was a brand-specific panel. I would like to highlight the other women that were on the panel though:
(I was very fortunate to be in the company of such brilliant women!)
The only other comment that I want to make is that Pepsico’s Purchase corporate offices are huge – I (literally) got lost! I’ve mentioned in the past how I have a really bad sense of (physical) direction. When the guard had to take me through three different buildings to get to the area where the panel was being held, I knew that I would have trouble finding my way back to the front desk if not escorted. After the panel, I needed to leave right away, so there was no one to take me back. I asked a man who worked there how to get back to the front and he said that he always has to go outside in order to figure it out himself. So, that’s what I did. Big mistake! There’s all this land and several different sidewalks/grassy areas/parking lots. I felt like I was in the movie, “The Shining” – there was no clear way out. Also, once you’re outside, you can’t get back in without an employee card. I was starting to get a little antsy, because I didn’t want to miss my car service pick-up. Finally, I saw a woman talking outside on her cell. She didn’t know how to get to the front either, but at least I was able to get back inside one of the buildings. Once inside, a kind man directed me to the front lobby area. Whew!
