  • True leadership - Are they leading in this time of disruption? Are they leading by example?
  • Authenticity -Do they have a unique story to tell? Are they willing to share both their successes and challenges?
  • Forward thinkers - Can they offer their vision and project what the industry will look like in 10 years?
