“Participating in the Converge panel is really challenging me to think big picture and get out of my comfort zone regarding the way we’ve always done things. We can think about the art of the possible regarding what the industry could look like in the future, how we might all do our jobs in the future and how we might best serve our clients.” – Linda Redding
