“One of the truest qualities of a leader is the ability to recognize what you don’t know, then to open yourself up to listening, learning, and adapting. What I appreciate most about “Lessons in Leadership” and my firm’s broader partnership with the organization is the range of platforms Steve provides to leaders of every stripe, in every industry and sector throughout the state, to offer their unique insight on business, strategy, and leadership. Given the variety of experience, perspective, and achievement on display, ‘Lessons in Leadership’ is the ideal outlet for both seasoned and up-and-coming leaders to discover something they don’t know – and to listen, learn, and adapt those lessons to the leadership of their own organizations.”


-Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Chairman and Managing Director, Gibbons P.C.

 
   
“I believe to be an effective leader you need to be a constant learner, and there is no better way to learn than to hear from the important leaders of our day. When I’m on Lessons in Leadership, I value the opportunity to share my experiences and the lessons I’ve learned throughout my career in hopes it can help current and aspiring leaders. I also personally gain incredible insight from hearing other leaders share their stories. Valley Bank is proud to be a sponsor of this important show.”
