I recently spoke to a Women in Downstream [WDSF] Finance Symposium. What a fabulous congregation of women! The auditorium was nearly filled with women who connected very easily to “You know what you said … do you know what they heard?”
Everything from “Denny’s on Highway 234 by Home Depot” to my first experience with text messaging … they related to my experiences and several shared some of their own. It’s even better when we can laugh at these episodes!
As one of my coordinators and I were comparing our own traits, we laughed that neither one of us were especially attentive to details. Luckily someone on the committee was, as she explained, and showed me the multi-page handout that committee members received including who was to be where and when. Thank goodness there are people in this world that insure those of us that are 50,000 feet vision people know when we are expected where.
It was exciting for me to be in a room filled with vibrant, energetic women. Thank you Women in Downstream Finance!
