More about the speakers

The healthcare world is evolving faster than organizations can develop leaders, who have the skill and acumen to put the organization on their backs and carry it forward.  Andy Hillig knows this because he was a leader who learned to adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing, highly uncertain environment.  When it became clear that his greatest joy and impact is helping others succeed and advance their career, he decided to leave his career to become a career strategist and leadership coach. Now Andy exclusively focuses on helping individuals develop the career resilience to perform at their best and transform the workplace.
