Just a sampling of the Thought Leaders reflections from TLC Executive Think Tank events follows:
"I was privileged to attend the Thought Leadership Conference Executive Think Tank in New York earlier this year. It functioned with such an air of respect for others. If you are able to attend the one in Washington DC later this September, please do…..There is a very American way of seeing the world, with progress coming from an overarching conscience bending towards justice…. It is an amazing energy. Don’t let this energy be sapped away….." Private Sector, Australia
“The CONFERENCE WAS EXTRAORDINARY!...TS– Private Industry, Montreal Canada; …The conference was a really good environment to ask some very pointed questions and to get some really good responses and feedback from different leaders from different organizations….”DC– United States Federal Government - Chair NIH Diversity Council;
“YOU NEED TO GO! YOU NEED TO BE THERE!!…One of the Best Conferences I Have Ever Attended...RU – Local Government, Nebraska Dept. Manager for City Human Rights & Relations...

A Note From the Hosts
“I would say that with the budgetary constraints it may not be a bad idea to have (TLC Executive Think Tank) in (Washington) DC to cut back on the travel. I would say it would an excellent opportunity to bring representatives from various sectors to talk to each other again and to discuss best practices and most importantly sharing of resources.” Jorge Ponce, Co-Chair, Council of Federal EEO & Civil Rights Executives
“...to have John Berry (Director of OPM) kick off this morning was phenomenal..he is the type of person who takes time to be responsive to the group he is presenting too…We have all been able to walk away with a wealth of ideas and best practices and action plans as to where we are going next…I want to thank you again for supporting us and for the excellent job you did ….I can see this effort (TLC Executive Think Tank Series) being one of the largest events to start that spark - the trigger - needed in motivating all of us to create the model workplace that the federal government should be…” Delia Johnson, Co-Chair, Council of Federal EEO & Civil Rights Executives
