What connects these three leaders?

Earlier this month I changed planes eight times to get to a range of IABC commitments. One of the things that made it so worthwhile was the warm welcome and the human connection one come across wherever a stop is made in the IABC universe.

A quick count tells me I talked 1:1 with a 100+ leaders, but as an espresso drinker I appreciate that your coffee break might not last all day. So I’ll focus in on three leaders who inspired me (in the order I met them).

In Jacksonville I had the opportunity to talk at length with long-serving leader Marci Larson.

Patient, graceful – and strategic.

A leader who quietly develops the next generation of local leaders.

We need more people like that.

In Denver I had the opportunity to meet Cody Bromley, the IABC Southern Region Rising Star for 2015 – and I can see why!

A bundle of energy and insight. Not afraid to challenge – or be challenged.

We need more people like that.

In Baltimore I had a chance to talk to Brenda Siler – Past Chair of the Association (1998-99). She’s got that quiet confidence and gravitas of an accomplished leader.

Plenty of irons in the fire, yet ready to help if called upon.

We need more people like that.

What they all have in common is the only place that connects internationally minded communicators. Join us.

Let’s #createconnection like never before.
