ENGAGING SPEAKERS

"How to be a strong leader? Create a winning culture where people aren't afraid to challenge ideas - yes, even the big boss's ideas - or the status quo. I've always surrounded myself with the smartest people I know and make sure they know they each have a voice. I don't feel threatened by them - instead I feel happy that they might be gunning for my job someday!"
