Shirley Mukerjea

Director of Marketing at PepsiCo Foods Canada

LEADERSHIP ROLE
Lead a team of ten, providing effective and sustainable shopper solutions that deliver sales growth through collaboration and unleashing the power of our brands to drive conversation at “the moment of truth”. Our efforts span Shopper Marketing, Marketing & Sales Execution, Portfolio Strategies and Sports Marketing.

FAVOURITE THING ABOUT LEADERSHIP
The ability to set a bold agenda and build high performance teams that maximize their own potential to drive extraordinary impact on the business, brands, themselves and the culture at large.

HOW YOU RECHARGE
I recharge by finding ways to stimulate (head) and inspire (heart) myself. This could include spending time with family & friends, attending inspiring and educational industry conferences…and recently re-investigating time in what fuels my passions and energy like dance/music, sports, arts/culture, photography, travel and practicing mindfulness.

LEADERSHIP ANTHEM
Hard question! Really depends on my mood and what my next challenge is. I have a rotation, I suppose between the following (don’t make me choose!):

  • “Canned Heat” by Jamiroquai
  • “Lose Yourself” by Eminem
  • “Superwoman/Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys
  • “Firework” by Katy Perry
  • “Power” by Kanye West
  • “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield
  • “My Way” by Frank Sinatra
  • “Just Fine” by Mary J. Blige
