When you surround yourself with excellence, you’re bound to catch some, too.

“It is important to be thoughtful and strategic in planning the leadership group but not thinking that any one or two people can do by themselves,” McDaniel said. “I know as women we sometimes think that, ‘I can do it, I can handle it, I can take this thing over.’ It is really good to delegate work.”
Inspiring advice even beyond event planning.
Registration is open through Wednesday, April 4.
