What our past winners are saying

Quote - Rob Hebeler "The experience has been great. I didn't know what to expect beyond what I've read and it has exceeded any expectations. What I like about LEAD is that the leadership is from everyone; it's from the music industry, entertainment and media, social justice and these aren't particularly areas that I reach for when i think about leadership. It has really expanded my definition and has given me access to worlds that I don't know that I would have been exposed to otherwise."
