“What I really like about Link to Leadership is that it’s an open forum; it’s a free format. You can be who you are, nobody is there to judge you. And normally when you sit in in leadership sessions, it’s all about do this, do this, do this, do this, and nobody tells you how to do it! Link to Leadership connects you with a mentor and it’s not just some mentor. It’s either a VP or a CIO or some really great, accomplished senior leader and that’s something I believe makes a huge difference.”
