Take Your Child to Work Day
Two weeks ago I brought Addison to work with me to celebrate Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. These photos are a little late in being posted, but it was such a wonderful day for both him and me that I had to share a glimpse into the experience.
The group was small -- about 10 children ranging in age from 7-12, and they were all so well behaved.
We started with a tour of the office. Here you see me sharing my cubicle. (Note the fabulous green rolling laptop bag on the right-hand side of the photo, which I just got and am completely in love with.)
During the tour the children enjoyed sitting in the "big man's" corner office.
The kids created vision boards of what they wanted to be when they grew up. Addison drew a rainbow. Not sure he understood the exercise.
Here he is chatting with the president of the company -- ever the politician.
The children joined our Marketing meeting in the big board room.
After the meeting it was time for pizza and Rita's Water Ice.
Addison working hard with one of his new friends.
Later in the day I led a little exercise on what marketing is. We focused on branding and logos, a concept the kids picked up very quickly.
Here is some of the artwork featuring famous logos the kids all knew well.
At the end of the day all the children signed a Thank You board to Revitas for hosting them.
And they all went home with goody bags, including their very own resume and stack of personalized business cards. You might be interested to check out my company's humorous blog post about the events of the day. It was a wonderful experience for all involved.
