#PLUS2018 Recap: Inspired by Keynote Speakers

Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s PLUS Conference in San Diego. It was a wonderful event with great attendance from across the industry.

This year’s conference had a phenomenal line-up of keynote speakers. Our opening speaker was John Kerry, the 68th Secretary of State. Carl Metzger, who is taking over the position of PLUS President, moderated a Q&A session that delved into Kerry’s career as well as the current climate, both politically and environmentally.

The lunch keynote was Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour, America’s first African American female combat pilot. Her presence literally leapt off the stage, invigorating the audience and inspiring everyone to “Get Gutsy.” She reminded us that we have “permission to engage!” and seize opportunities in our industry.

Our final keynote address was given by Gloria Allred, founding partner of Allred, Maroko & Goldberg. Debbie Schaffel, the outgoing PLUS President, moderated a Q&A session. Gloria Allred is an incredible woman with unparalleled passion for her work, and it was a privilege to hear her speak.
