Thank You Successful Meetings!

Imagine being on personal time off, trying to relax and get away from the pressures of work when you receive the best affirmation possible that what you do is making a big difference. I am still surprised and humbled by being named one ofSuccessful Meetings magazine’s Top 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry for 2014.

Last year when I received the news about getting on the 2013 list, I was really surprised and happy about the recognition.  This year is truly a surreal experience being named for the second year in a row.  When I read the rest of the list of my fellow Top 25 honorees for 2014, I felt incredibly humbled to be included in such a worthy group of well-recognized leaders who have done much to advance our industry.  I also noticed a common thread throughout the list: a passion each person expressed for their personal work as well as their contributions for the advancement of our industry.

Speaking for myself, moving the needle on best practices, better processes and industry advancement has been ingrained into me by my career mentors as a major part of everything that I try to do for my employer, as well as for partners, clients, and the industry as a whole. The bottom line is, I’ve been blessed by many great people, employers and, yes, even horrible bosses who taught me how not to behave in a leadership role. It does indeed take a village to move the needle on anything. But I have always been willing to take on that challenge because, underneath it all, it’s the right thing to do.

My parents taught me at a very young age, that if you make a decision that will benefit others, you can never make a bad decision for yourself.  That’s been my guiding principle throughout my career which brings me back to this special moment in time. I want to congratulate the 24 other listed individuals on this year’s Top 25 list; I am humbled to be listed among them.

Most importantly, I want to sincerely thank Successful Meetings for raising the bar and inspiring people in our industry to break paradigms, challenge processes, incorporate best practices and, most importantly, never settle for the status quo. It truly inspires me to do more and keep raising that bar!
