“The harder I work, the luckier I get.” This quote and variations of it have been attributed to Thomas Jefferson and Samuel Goldwyn, among others. We may never know who actually said it, but regardless, the sentiment is clear: Luck is something we make for ourselves through perseverance, work, and by seizing opportunities. This seems especially apropos as we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this week. It’s a reminder that we can all be Irish for one day, and lucky, IF we work hard enough!
As we all know, there are potentially huge changes looming in healthcare and long-term care. Nothing could be clearer than the need to develop leadership in this environment. The Summer Leadership Conference, to be held in Bermuda from July 24–28, 2017, is an opportunity to do just that; it provides a unique, once-a-year chance to replenish, recharge, and refocus.
This is the 35th annual edition of The Summer Leadership Conference, a testament to its value to the participants (many of whom have been coming for years), and its endurance as a high-level event, attracting leaders who want to share experiences, in addition to exploring all the recreational, leisure, and sports-related activities Bermuda has to offer.
In light of the coming changes and potential challenges in our industry, let’s work harder, play harder, and conjure up some luck! Consider joining your colleagues, earning 15 CEUs, and recharging those leadership batteries!
