Cindi Bigelow Joins Impressive Panel at Westfair Communications Event

 

I spoke at the Collegeof New Rochelle where I was invited to be part of a panel put on by the Westfair Communications.

This was the third year they had a one hour panel discussions with professional women from Fairfield and Westchester Counties.  Almost 300 women attended and the panel, in which I was a part of, could not have been more impressive (that does not mean I am including myself in the impressive part).  Questions were raised about what young women need today to increase their chance of success in the work place, how do we balance family and business, how to deal with being assertive versus “too aggressive”-you name it, we were asked the questions.

And it was so much fun.  I absolutely loved the answers that the other panelist shared with the room.  We were even asked questions that had us asking ourselves questions we had never thought of before, so we had to really dig down deep to think about “why”-very thought provoking.

It was a great hour, fast paced and extremely rewarding for me.  Glad they asked me to be a part of it!

Women’s History Month: Reflection and Celebration

March is National Women’s History Month, a distinctive time for celebrating the women who have achieved so much, but perhaps more importantly an opportunity to savor and reflect on their gifts and lives. No one understands “savor and reflection” like Bigelow Tea, and what better way to move beyond the facts and connect with people than with tea and conversation. We know that there is a grand history of women’s achievement through the centuries: from Anne Bradstreet, the first published American author in 1650, to Eileen Collins, the first commander of a space shuttle 350 years later. But facts alone don’t tell the story, so National Women’s History Month is an opportunity to move beyond facts and figures, and reflect on the bonds within ourselves to these notable women and their lives.

We at Bigelow Tea have many women to thank. Of course, every time you sit down with a cup of our tea, remember that Ms. Ruth Campbell Bigelow started the company over 60 years ago. Her love of tea (and appreciation of the history of women in Colonial America) helped her create Constant Comment, and the rest, as they say, is history. A delicious history indeed. Being the son of such a visionary woman was a privilege for David C. Bigelow, and he wrote about it in his recently published book My Mother Loved Tea. And with upholding connections to the past, Cindi Bigelow, daughter of David C. Bigelow and granddaughter of Ms. Ruth Campbell Bigelow, is President of Bigelow Tea. An extremely hands-on and genuine President, Cindi has brought something intrinsically female to her position as she boosts appreciation for Bigelow Tea. A salute to all, in recognizing National Women’s History Month.
