Women in Search Luncheon – SES San Jose

Women in Search Luncheon

TopRank’s Melinda Cayetano and Dana Larson attended the Women in Search Luncheon with over 50 in attendance. TopRank is proud to have been a co-sponsor of the event along with Danny Sullivan. TopRank wanted to give recognition to Jill Whalen and Kim Krause Berg as being key influences for us from waaaay back when to get involved with the search marketing industry. Amanda Watlington and Heather Lloyd-Martin were also great motivators and facilitators for us as well.   I’d say it’s worked out pretty well so far. 🙂

  1. Sorry I missed it I could not make it due to flight scheduling.

    Awe..Lee, thank you. I guess sometimes being “older” has its perks.

    I arrived during the last 20 minutes of the lunch due to my flight ordeal in Chicago. This meant I was a drained wreck and didn’t have a chance to talk to many of the women there. Christine, Mike and Liana were making sure I was fed and given some space to recover. These gestures meant a lot.

    I was also pleased to see there were a few men, including Chris Winfield, who were also in attendance. How gently I was treated was a good reminder that when it comes to our work and the people in this industry, when one of us goes down, SEO’s of both genders will reach out for you.
