Kathy Sendall's Top 10- What's Yours?
Inspiration & Wisdom
By Women's Executive NetworkMay 9, 2013
Recently at a WXN Breakfast in Calgary, 2007 WXN Top 100 Hall of Fame inductee and Corporate Director Kathleen Sendall was interviewed by WXN founder, Pamela Jeffery as they delved into a variety of questions. We think Kathy’s ‘Top 10’ list makes pretty good sense and is also a great conversation starter. Here are Kathy’s ‘Top 10’:
1. Never give up the search for the perfect mascara.
2. Never lose your sense of humour and ability to laugh, especially at yourself.
3. Listen - learn to keep your mouth shut and control your temper.

1.Â Â Â What led you to this topic: the rise and fall of food empires?
The idea for the book arose out of conversations that we started when we wrote our first book, Beef: The Untold Story of How Milk, Meat, and Muscle Shaped the World, which was largely an essay on the industrialization of livestock. We started asking broader questions about the history of how our food system got to its present state. As we explored the background, we saw a pattern in how agriculture and the food trade affect societies as disparate as ancient Rome and 19th-century Sri Lanka.
What are WXN Members Reading?

I am always curious about what our WXN communityÂ is reading these days. I am a big non-fiction fan. I love quotes and books on a variety of business, psych and sociological topics. This weekend I picked up Jeremy Rifkin's book on the Empathetic Civilization. Great read!! ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jeremy-rifkin/the-empathic-civilization_b_416589.html ) Empathy is a powerful tool in life and business. Check out our event on July 13th in Toronto on Empathetic Business.
