Speaking Sessions

  • The New Climate for Corporate Political Accountability (Moderator)
  • The New Climate for Ever-Evolving Technology (Moderator)

I felt this conference was life changing. I am truly inspired and am plotting both career and personal changes to live up to the great lessons I learned. Both the sessions and the networking were vital.
