A Night for Sales and Operations Professionals featuring Flexport's Women Leaders
After partnering with Flexport, the innovative company that's combining advanced technology and data analytics, logistics infrastructure, and supply chain expertise to revolutionizing global trade, we were super excited to reunite for a new event, this time in New York City.
This intimate evening for skilled professionals working in sales and operations took place on September 10th at Flexport's inviting New York office and was hosted by PowerToFly CEO Milena Berry. As our guests arrived, they had a chance to network with their peers and members of the Flexport team while enjoying complimentary (and delicious!) food and refreshments.
Things kicked off with a warm keynote address by Flexport's Kara Shapiro, Senior Manager of Accounts, who then joined our informative panel of Flexport women leaders that also included Thea Dolan, Global Operations Manager; Maryana Kessel, Senior Global Account Executive; and Jessica Tissera, Sales Development Manager. After answering some questions from Milena, our four speakers dedicated the rest of their time to taking questions from the audience.
Before the night moved back into networking, our guests received a special treat. Using their gifted Flexport notebooks and pens, Program Manager Bri Lopez walked our attendees through an insightful activity about "crafting your job", geared at identifying the tasks (and teammates) that both give and detract from your work energy. (By the way, if you'd like a copy of Bri's presentation, please email email@example.com)
Here's what one attendee had to say about the event: "Thank you and PowerToFly for organizing such a welcoming and informative event at Flexport tonight. I came away feeling energized and enthusiastic about my search for my next role. It is uplifting to see first hand that companies do exist where mind-blowing, technology-enabled customer service, collaboration and problem solving are core values that are lived by the leaders and the teams every day!"
