On Thursday, July 31st, approximately 20 PepsiCo Mentors and their Protégés gathered at PepsiCo’s Chicago Headquarters for a luncheon and networking session. ACP Mentor Brett Lucas presented his thoughts and perspectives for developing and maintaining networks in his presentation entitled: “Networking: Making it Work for You”. Brett is a Director in PepsiCo’s Supply Chain and serves as the National Chairperson for PepsiCo Valor, the company’s Employee Resource Group supporting military veterans. Following the presentation, the group engaged in a roundtable discussion focused on tackling networking and career decisiveness issues. Later in the afternoon, several of the attendees joined Valor members for a community service event at the USO of Illinois’ center on Naval Station Great Lakes. The group served dinner to more than 325 service members and their families.
ACP would like to thank Brett Lucas, Charlie Kowalski, Jack Detzel, and Jill Struzik of PepsiCo for hosting this wonderful event.
