We had two excellent keynote speakers for our "Healthy Lands & Healthy People" theme.
Finding Your Why
“Does your ‘why’ make you feel happy and hopeful? If it’s about guilt, restrictions, and feelings of inadequacy, you haven’t found your why. Once you’ve found the right ‘why,’ then success depends on a plan and mastery.” – Margaret Sabin
Margaret Sabin from Penrose-St. Francis Health Services is a national leader in preventative health and wellness and a five-time CEO with over 37 years of experience dealing with the health care community. She has been named one of the Colorado Springs Business Journal's "Women of Influence" and in 2014, was named Colorado Springs Business Journal's "Healthiest CEO." We look forward to hearing how a healthy lifestyle impacts all aspects of life.
Wendy Jackson, Executive Vice President at the Land Trust Alliance, also joined us for keynote remarks. Wendy joined the Land Trust Alliance 2016 after serving as the Executive Director at the Freshwater Land Trust in Alabama.
