We Love Lucy

     

From the beginning of the academic year many of us female students and partners have been looking forward to the annual Women in Leadership retreat in Napa. (Sorry, guys - this is the one event of the year to which you're *not* invited!)

Our fabulous retreat co-chairs planned a jam-packed day of fun, including a raucous team challenge that included stomping grapes:
I couldn't help but think of this classic scene:


Only it didn't stop with grape stomping - in true MBA style, the team challenge also encompassed developing a wine-themed product idea and marketing campaign (e.g., "Cabernet Lingerie" or "Chardon-YAY" energy booster). Our teams presented skits during a gourmet luncheon - probably not surprising to learn that as the wine continued to flow, the presentations became funnier and funnier...
