Women to Watch luncheon

I started today off at the Women to Watch breakfast where we were paired up with interns that we could chat with. These gals are some smart cookies - great futures ahead of them.

At the luncheon all the honorees sat on stage and were asked one question. There were 950 people at the luncheon to hear what we had to say!

Here I am with my award! What an amazing event! I am so honored to be included with the other women who were recognized!


  1. Congratulations! and well deserved.

    I just sent you an email about getting together in September in San Jose. Let me know if you didn't get it and I can resend!

  2. So what was your question, and what did you answer? Don't leave us in suspense! ;)

  3. wow, congrats! i have the same question as chris! :P

  4. Ok - here is my question and answer.

    Q - How do you ensure that social media informs the way Kodak does business rather than just being a nice veneer on operations?

    A - Believe it or not, it's not a difficult thing to do. You just have to be real, be yourself and be transparent.

    I think we are fortunate because we have great employees who believe in our products and are passionate about what they do and they are the ones that have been given a voice through our social media. They write the blog posts, they are featured in videos. Your employees can be your best spokespeople.

    I have to note that besides the story we have to tell, which I hope does provide customers value, it is even more important to listen. If someone has negative feedback that is not something to run away from but it should be embraced as an opportunity to improve your product and your company.

    So that is it. Be real, be yourself and listen.

  5. congratulations! you should make the award into a hat and wear it around!

  6. Congrats! This is a great honor, and you deserve it!

  7. Well done, congrats! Must have been an interesting group of ladies!

  8. Congrats! You are all kinds of awesome.

  9. Congratulations! That must've been very exciting! Great answer, btw.
