"Everyone knows that I have two daughters. They know when I have had a scrap with my elder daughter. They all know that I am a mum."

But, she goes on to say, "you have to co-opt the whole ecosystem". By this, she means her secretaries, security guards (and doubtless others).

So, when Nooyi is called by one of her daughters requesting half an hour on her Nintendo, several people can go through Mum’s checklist (Have you done your homework” etc) and can let Mum know.

Nooyi calls it "group mothering".

Kirsty Wark is chuckling. The story gets a round of applause from the audience.
