We're already hard at work building another compelling program for the 2015 Simmons Leadership Conference. Next year's theme, Dare to Compete, reflects the astute advice of Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, and it's a rallying cry that resonated strongly with attendees at our 2014 conference.
Our 2015 program includes Arianna Huffington, chair, president, and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, Padmasree Warrior, Chief Technology & Strategy Officer of Cisco, Nilofar Merchant, business strategist and author of The New How: Creating Business Solutions through Collaborative Strategy, and Claire Shipman, broadcast journalist and author of The Confidence Code: The Art and Science of Self-Assurance, with many more to come. So stay tuned!
