After a wonderful lunch was served, the afternoon also included a speech from keynote speaker, Dr. Erin Oksol, who is an expert on cognitive-behavioral psychology. We all left with an important message of adapting a “growth” mindset. It was a great message for all of us, and something that Jill, as a marketing professional and leader, exhibits in all that she does.
