“Keep in mind that real leaders are ordinary people with an extraordinary vision. So dream big and think outside your boundaries. Be proud of yourself and of your ability to lead. Be sure to lead by example, by doing the right thing and sticking to your values. And most importantly enjoy what you are doing.”2012 Conference Chair — Annette Verschuren
