Post Con: After Hours with BCD's Mary MacGregor

Vice president, account development, BCD Meetings & Incentives, Minneapolis, and president-elect, Site Global

1. If you could be anywhere in the world, where would you be?

At our summer cabin on Big Birch Lake in West Central Minnesota. … Love the loons!

2. What’s playing on your iPod?

I love lots of music, but country is No. 1. Sugarland, Lady Antebellum, Toby Keith, and Brad Paisley currently top the list.

3. If you could be a superhero, what superpower would you want?

Since I travel so much, I would love to snap my fingers and transport myself to where I need to be—oh, the time I’d save!

4. It’s time for a second career, what do you choose?

I would buy a bed and breakfast, grow a garden, and spend my days cooking for and entertaining our guests.

5. What’s your hidden talent?

I can tap dance (literally and figuratively).

6. Who inspires you?

Working moms

7. If you could trade places with anyone (living or from history) for a week, who would you choose?

Michelle Obama. I admire her strength and that she strives to make a positive impact with everything she does.

8. What is your favorite cause/charity?

My mom started a prayer-shawl ministry at our church. It’s unbelievably touching to see how a simple hand-knit shawl given to someone during a time of loss or struggle can have such a healing effect.

9. What do you do to stay healthy?

Take a daily walk, sleep in a comfy bed, laugh a lot, and save all my extra calories for chardonnay

10. If you could go back in time, what would you change about your life?

I would have put more money in bonds.

11. What is your favorite quote?

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!
