Steve Jobs, Founder of Apple, was quoted as saying, “Here’s to the crazy ones.” The bold ones. “The misfits, the rebels and the trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently…they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.”
BOLD CHOICES inspire lasting impressions, but they are not forged in, nor do they present themselves in a vacuum. The industry’s top professionals understand the difference that education, knowledge, a continuing global dialogue, and exposure to creative new ideas make between leading the parade or marching in place. BOLD CHOICES change the experience, for everyone…from staffs to volunteers; sponsors to attendees; and stakeholders at every level.
