“To live the lives we truly want and deserve, and not just the lives we settle for, we need a Third Metric a third measure of success that goes beyond the two metrics of money and power, and consists of four pillars: well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving.” Arianna Huffington, Greek-American author, syndicated columnist, and businesswoman. She is a co-founder of The Huffington Post, the founder and CEO of Thrive Global, and the author of fifteen books.

“If you carefully consider what you want to be said of you in the funeral experience you will find your definition of success.” Stephen Covey, American educator, businessman, and keynote speaker and author of best selling book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”

We have gathered four incredible panelists for this dynamic lunchtime discussion – two men and two women – all successful professionals who have generously offered their time to share their differing views on success, what it took for them to get to where they are, and how they continue to thrive and grow in today’s chaotic and unpredictable environment.   Our speakers will also share their thoughts on whether gender differences play a major role in what goals we pursue and how we accomplish our goals. Don’t miss this insightful discussion!
