Meantime, here are five of my favorite quotes from yesterday's MPW Summit sessions:
"Never love something so much you can't let go of it."
- IBM CEO Ginni Rometty on the reinvention that is essential for long-term success
"As a woman, I don't have to tell you that size is not everything."
- Irene Rosenfeld on splitting Kraft and now running Mondalez International (MDLZ), a $36 billion-a-year part of the $54 whole.
"Changing culture is not a sprint. It's a marathon."
- Carol Bartz's advice to Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer. Here's a video clip of me interviewing Bartz.
"You have to be awesome with your flaws, the things that aren't exactly perfect."
- Coca-Cola (KO) SVP Wendy Clark on building a social media mega-brand, with authenticity.
More highlights! Lena Dunham, the star and creator of HBO's Girls, was charming and funny as she talked about next-gen power and her show's critics with CNN's Soledad O'Brien.
And my conversation with former Sara Lee CEO (HSH) Brenda Barnes and her daughter, Erin, touched and brought some tears to the MPW audience. Barnes had a major stroke in 2010, and Erin quit her job to help her mom recover. "The Rehabilitation of Brenda Barnes" is in the current issue of Fortune. Stay tuned here on Postcards for more on a video clip of our conversation at the Summit.
