Interview with Mauro Porcini Chief Design Officer PepsiCo for an Episode of his series In Your Shoes.

November 11, 2020

Listen to Mauro Porcini, PepsiCo's Chief Design Officer, as he speaks with some of the world's most innovative minds about the vision, values and experiences that drive their creative journey, including Michelle Stuhl.

As both an artist and the founder of a global creative executive search firm, Michelle Stuhl shares how pursuing her passion with the support of strong female mentors leads to a fulfilling, unexpected career trajectory.

"I met Michelle Stuhl for the first time a decade ago, when she approached me for a great position, in a great company, under an incredible & iconic leader. She came to me literally a day before I got approached by PepsiCo. At the end I decided to join PepsiCo, for another great position, in a great company, under an incredibile & iconic leader. And I am happier than ever of that choice. But the experience with Michelle has been so great, that I have then partnered with her to build a great part of my PepsiCo Design team over the years.

In this episode of “In your shoes” I talk with Michelle about #talent. How critical is personal branding in this social media world we live in? How to present yourself to a company? How to find the best talents? How to find a mentor? How to get your next job? How to shine during an interview? How critical is diversity and inclusion? How important is to be a good human being on top of being a great professional talent? Michelle and I discuss all of this, and much more."
