We Met MINDBODY's Women Tech Leaders in San Francisco
On July 11th, PowerToFly partnered with MINDBODY on our third event together. This particular gathering for women in tech took place in in the San Francisco HQ of Frederick for MINDBODY and featured a product demo, tech talk and, of course, plenty of opportunities for our guests to network with MINDBODY leaders and each other.
The night kicked off with a spirited keynote address by Regina Wallace-Jones, Vice President, Product Operations. Regina also spoke at our event with MINDBODY in New York and she is a truly a thoughtful, inspiring presence. If you see that she's speaking at a conference near you...go!
After Regina warmed up the room, we moved into the evening's tech talk hosted by Mariane Bekker, Director of Engineering. It was a pleasure to have Mariane in the room and to hear directly from one of the skilled professionals behind MINDBODY's product.
Mariane and Regina stuck around for a panel discussion and audience Q&A where they were joined by Pallavi Pershey, Software Engineer and Emma Flock, Software Engineer. Our panel shared their own career journeys while also diving deeper into their lives at MINDBODY. After our panel wrapped up, attendees had plenty of more time to mingle with each other before closing out the night.
As competition rises, software companies that want to succeed are investing in good, efficient customer support teams. Companies today know the importance of skilled customer support representatives on board, and the industry is growing rapidly.
Have you noticed that everyone is talking about Nashville lately? Currently, there are roughly 82 people moving to Nashville daily, and for a small city, that's a big deal. There are quite a few reasons why Nashville has become the new "it" city beyond the Country music and hot chicken: for the last decade or so, Nashville has been having tremendous job growth.
For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, fall is finally here and the days are getting shorter...
So what better way to cope with the cold than by binging some awesome TV shows with insanely talented women at the helm (as actors, creators, producers, directors, writers, and in some cases, all of the above!).
