Keynote: Marti Grimminck, Founder, International Connector
What is leadership today? What does it mean to be a leader in this changing business landscape, particularly for women? Who are the new leaders of today and tomorrow, and what are the qualities that make them leaders? Technology, new business models, social impact, the environment, and the next generation are all factors impacting how we lead. Long gone is top-down thinking. It’s about collaboration. As a leader of a global network, I have learned the value of being collaborative and entrepreneurial; to adapt and constantly prepare for – and accept – change. To advance my career, I have always focused on nontraditional routes and pushed innovative ideas. Now, I apply these same qualities when I work with legacy brands and other organizations like the city of Athens or Ottawa on their tourism programs. How can they be applied in your environment?
