Margi Prueitt, executive director of the Newark, Del.-based PMA Foundation for Industry Talent, took in the feedback but noted the format for next year’s event is not yet clear, although she promised there would be a second conference.

From all the feedback she received during the event, Prueitt said she was blown away by the positive response to the format.

“We did not hear from one person that the conference was not meeting their expectations. Instead, the conference exceeded them across the board,” she said.

Prueitt said 176 people attended.

Bettina Lindner Lippisch is General Manager of Red Book Credit Services, which is owned by Vance Publishing Corporation, owner of The Packer.

Kudos to the PMA Foundation, the planning committee and PMA staff for bringing to fruition the first Women's Fresh Perspectives Conference. An excellent 2 days and well worth the time and monetary investment! To all of you that didn't attend this year - be sure to sign up for next years conference!

We are pleased that so many women gained insight and skills to improve their game which will help their companies gain! We look forward to seeing more women at the WFP Reception at the PMA Foodservice Conference and the WFP Breakfast at Fresh Summit in October.
