A LETTER FROM THE FOUNDERS
LEANNE LINACRE, LEAD5050 CO-FOUNDER
LEAD5050 | GLOBAL
Our feet have barely hit the ground over the last few weeks what with all the preparations for our super-exciting North American launch in Miami, the event itself, and then quick turn around and back home to all the festivities leading up to Christmas!
All of which was well worth the effort and the air miles as to have been able to launch Lead5050 state-side within the first 9 months of forming is something we would have thought not possible. It just goes to show what we can achieve when we push beyond our expectations and work together! Bringing people together is a key aim of Lead5050 and we’ve been able to do this courtesy of our AMAZING sponsors OHLA, Study Group and Exchange Mate. This event really would never have happened without the tireless energy and support of #First50 Jenny Nieveen and #Champion Yves Paradis and their team at OHLA. They helped us bring together a whole host of wonderful people to hear inspirational words from Jenny herself and #First50 Dr Emily Williams Knight.
It really was a fantastic evening attended by the movers and shakers of the industry where we had opportunity to network with friends and colleagues, meet new people and be inspired. We were treated to jaw-dropping views of the Miami skyline and we danced the night away to a PHENOMENAL band which just happened to be lead by a woman – nice of the universe to organise that for us 🙂
We’ve pulled out some of the wonderful words of wisdom, see below, for your delectation. If you’re interested in first-hand experience of a Lead5050 event keep your eye on news in 2018 as we’re working on ways to spread the love and bring Lead5050 to you.
Hope you’ve all had as much fun connecting with fellow leaders in 2017 – here’s to 2018 and all that it brings.
Wishing you all peace, love and equality for the rest of the year and beyond.
Ella, Leanne and Maria
