Last week, I attended the Women’s Beverage Alcohol Symposium at Bentley University in Waltham, MA. This is the fourth year that Martignetti Companies has held the event, which brings together women in leadership roles throughout the industry.
This year, the symposium was presented in partnership with three industry organizations: the Center for Women and Business at Bentley University, Women of the Vine and Spirits and the WSWA Women’s Leadership Council. The Beverage Information & Insight Group, Beverage Wholesaler‘s sister research company, was an exhibitor at the event.
The keynote was given by Dr. Haley Perlus, an author and peak performance expert who spoke about “The One-Minute Mindset.” Other general sessions included “The Power of Networking,” given by Women of the Vine & Spirits Alliance President Deborah Brenner, and “Politically Advancing Yourself,” given by WSWA VP of Federal Affairs Catherine McDaniel.
The event also included breakout sessions, networking opportunities and a trade show featuring industry vendors.
