‘Twas an ordinary Tuesday at work. I casually browsed our weekly internal newsletter and my eyes caught a note about Google’s Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand holding a TechTalk at 12.30pm. I rang Pepper Potts and announced that we were going to have an early lunch because we are attending a one hour mind-opening talk. She thanked me later for dragging her. 🙂
I hold an almost obscene fascination for strong women…period. For Maile Carnegie to be head of Google? Well, that just makes my fascination become romantic. There she was, standing tall, confident and quite friendly (I find) in front of a packed auditorium filled with Optus employess who either skipped lunch or shortened their lunch hour just to hear a Google executive speak. Even before she opened her mouth, the whole talk was already a success!
Ms Carnegie, before joining Google a couple of years ago, was head of Procter and Gamble Australia and New Zealand. She came from a traditional old-school company that makes household products, to a tech giant that keeps changing the world and keeps adding new buzzwords to our vocabulary.
