WHERE I WAS LAST WEEK
Last week my husband and I worked the 19th annual conference of the Professional Businesswomen of California. Over 5000 attended the highly motivated and estrogen charged event.
Pictured are two of the keynote speakers that I helped while working the speakers lounge area.
Faceing the camera is Madeleine Albright who was the 64th Secretary of State of the United States. She was formerly the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations. She was signing her latest book..Memo to the President Elect: How We Can Restore America's Reputation and Leadership. It was published in January 2008.
Ms. Albright is a most gracious woman and seemed to enjoy sharing her thoughts with so many entrepreneurs.
The woman Ms. Albright is speaking to is Cokie Roberts. Cokie is a Polital Commentator for ABC News and a Senior News Analyst for National Public Radio. She has been cited as one of the 50 greatest women in the history of broadcasting. On April 12th she was honered as a "Living Legend" by the Library of Congress.
I was previleged to receive her latest best-seller Ladies of Liberty: The Women Who Shaped Our Nation.
I felt fortunate to be among such interesting people. There were many local television and radio personalities there also.
Technically this isn't a great picture by any means but I had to take this without disturbing anyone, since I was suppose to be working.
