Next week I’m heading to a very cool conference in Chi-town called Blogher that’s for blogging ladies (and a few gents apparently!) to meet, greet, tweet and hopefully make some new friends and connections. While there I’ve been asked to participate in this really cool event and need your help.
It’s called the What Women Want event and is sponsored by Ford. They’re taking a group of bloggers to tour the Ford plant and we even get to have breakfast with Scott Monty the Global Digital and Multimedia Communications Manager. We’ve been called upon to help Ford in a roundtable discussion that will help shape the way Ford designs cars. I’m going to be blogging all of this for ya’ll to enjoy but before I do I wanted to start talking about what you want in a car.
One of the features that I heard about and loved was this:
MyKey is a new Ford safety technology – launching this summer as standard equipment on the 2010 Focus, Taurus and other popular models – that allows owners to program a key that can limit the vehicle’s top speed and audio volume to encourage teens to drive safer.
Doesn’t that sound very cool? Although I’m not a Mum of teenagers yet, as a Mum I really can see the importance of MyKey and how safe it is.
So, what about you? “What do Women Want in a Car?“ (She says as she sees Mel Gibson in her mind!) Please leave comments and let me know, Ford really wants to hear your voice!
