Our sixth annual women's executive roundtable with KPMG will include discussions on industry hot topics, such as how companies are successfully leveraging cloud computing and the impact of social media on the industry. The night before, we will enjoy an evening out at the Chelsea Market and dinner at Del Posto.
On May 16, join us for a food tasting and cultural walking tour through New York City's delicious and historic Chelsea Market, which began as the National Biscuit Company factory - the birthplace of the Oreo cookie. The developers of Chelsea Market have encouraged sustainability among their tenants, with the vendors supplying the restaurateurs with fresh ingredients for their menus. After our tour, we will enjoy dinner at Del Posto, a three-star Certified Green Restaurant located in the heart of Chelsea. This will be a great opportunity to reconnect with your colleagues and make new acquaintances prior to Thursday's roundtable!
