More than 140 Network of Executive Women members learned valuable brain-training techniques at the NEW Chicago event hosted by PepsiCo Inc. in Chicago, Aug. 15, 2013.

"Thinking Within: Brain Training to Cultivate a More Creative Culture and a Better You!" was led by Daphne Mazarakis, educator and author of The Thinking Within Curriculum. Mazarakis engaged the audience with humor, participation and meditation to emphasize the brain’s capacity for creativity and flexibility in service of successful products, services and employee culture.

Mazarakis spoke of her own view of juggling priorities, schedules and personal needs. "There is no work-life balance," she said. "We have one life and what’s most important is that we are living it to our fullest, regardless of whether we are at work, at play, with our families or with our friends."

Among the companies sending large delegations to the event were Accenture, KeHE Distributors Inc., Mondelēz International Inc., Paris Presents, PepsiCo Inc. and SC Johnson.
