Nearly 250 foodservice industry executives gathered earlier this week in Phoenix, Ariz. for the Women’s Foodservice Forum Executive Summit.
WFF president and chief executive Fritzi Woods said, “One remarkable thing about WFF events is how candid executives are willing to be about what they've learned and the decisions they've made in their careers in an effort to help others do better and go further. Our panelists shared valuable insights about how to be strategic when faced with a transition in your career."
