My husband’s firm was interested in potentially getting involved with SDSVP, but since none of his partners wanted to actually attend an event, Jeff roped me in to joining him for the holiday party in 2004. I accompanied him begrudgingly, with absolute conviction that this would be yet another evening of mind-numbing cocktail-hour chit chat with nothing of substance to keep my noggin engaged. By the end of the evening Jeff couldn’t get me to go home. SDSVP people are warm, incredibly intelligent, passionate and truly interested in helping make our world a better place. I was smitten. We joined right away and then I ... market research, surveys and trends

With the 50th anniversary of the Asterix books coming up, how do ...
I really love the Asterix books, I almost have them all (up until the 27th album) but I kinda lost track getting older. There was one album which I believe had visitors from out of space - that was a bit too much. I still enjoy the albums that I have, my oldest son has the same feeling about the albums and is reading them now more often. Not planning anything in particular to celebrate, if a new album would come out, I would consider buying it. Maybe in a few years time I will visit Parc Asterix near Paris, when the kids get older.
