Ellen Bennett of Hedley & Bennett joins us to moderate the latest panel in our Cherry Bombe Jubilee coverage, focused on how to be be the boss of others or just yourself. This panel was part of our third annual Jubilee conference, which was held earlier this year at the High Line Hotel in New York and featured interviews and talks with some of the most interesting women in the world of food. More than 300 guests attend the sold-out conference each year to network, hear the speakers, and enjoy food from the city’s hottest female-run businesses.
The “How to Be the Boss” panel welcomed four powerhouses who shared their advice and perspectives on growing a business, managing others, and finding balance. Our panelists included Jodi Berg, CEO of Vitamix; Amanda Hesser, co-founder and CEO of Food52; Katrina Markoff, founder of Vosges Haut-Chocolat; and Christina Minardi, president of the Northeast region of Whole Foods Market. Our moderator, Ellen Bennett, is the founder and CEO of Hedley & Bennett, the apron brand beloved by many of the nation’s top chefs and kitchens.
