On October 16th, PowerToFly hosted our first event with Autodesk, a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, in San Francisco.
Autodesk is a truly astounding company. From cars to skyscrapers to smartphones to even movie special effects, Autodesk's software makes it all possible. This intimate evening of networking and learning was hosted by PowerToFly's Amanda Bender and featured a diverse and impressive array of speakers from Autodesk.
The night kicked off with a warm welcome address by Queen Denchukwu, Manager, Global Diversity Partnerships and Alliances. Next up, our audience was treated to a special tech talk from Paula Berggren, Senior Exhibit Designer.
Following the evening's tech talk, Amanda moderated a panel discussion featuring several of Autodesk's women leaders including:
- Olivia Stuckman, Embedded Manufacturing Product Manager
- Tanu Chellam, Sr. Product Manager
- Mimi Hoang, Sr. Director of AutoCAD Strategy & Marketing
- Jessica Raedler, Conversational AI Lead
On November 20th, over fifty women braved the increasingly chilly New York weather to join PowerToFly at an invite-only happy hour event featuring two fast-growing and fascinating companies, CLEAR and OUTFRONT Media.
Held at the intimate Nomad Annex, guests enjoyed networking over scrumptious small bites and refreshments as they waited for our programming to begin. PowerToFly's CEO Milena Berry warmly greeted the crowd but because she had lost her voice she turned the microphone over to yours truly to host the rest of our gathering.
First up was Jacquelyn Talpalar, VP, Agile Program Management at CLEAR. After sharing some of her personal career journey (and her love of Duke basketball), Jacquelyn walked the room through some of CLEAR's current and upcoming projects. While CLEAR has already revolutionized air travel by using biometrics to speed up security, they've now kicked off an impressive expansion in a host of new arenas - quite literally, like using CLEAR to be approved for an adult beverage at your next concert or sports outing.
Next up, PowerToFly welcomed back OUTFRONT Media's Nancy Hoffman, SVP, Associate General Counsel, MTA Program Manager and Marion Parrish, SVP, Digital Operations. Nancy and Marion spoke at another of our recent NYC events and they are always entertaining and informative. OUTFRONT Media is already a ubiquitous presence through their eye-catching billboards (Times Square? That's them) but Nancy and Marion detailed how OUTFRONT Media has partnered with NYC's MTA to transform the subway and rail systems via electronic screens that provide both advertising and helpful transit updates.
Jacquelyn, Nancy, Marion and their team members also all stuck around to answer questions from our audience. Thanks to everyone who joined us and catch you at the next event!
If you are a sales, marketing or people operations professional based in the greater San Francisco area and you'd like to attend this event, please send your name and LinkedIn URL to email@example.com to be considered for an invite.
