Why - Discover Yours!
Tammy Tiller-Hewitt, Chief Executive Officer, Tiller-Hewitt HealthCare Strategies

Ask yourself "What is my life's goal?" You are not alone if your response is, "Well, I'm 26 or 46 or yes... even 76 and I still don't know! What is the purpose of exploring new frontiers? Discovery! Great explorers have discovered new worlds, tools, cures, and ways to improve our lives. Your most important journey as a person and professional is to discover your WHY. Regardless of the generation or occupation, the vast majority of people don't know their why! It's not that we don't have dreams and aspirations - but they're fuzzy at best. If given a blank map to chart our journey to our WHY - what would we see? How can we get clarity and a compass to finally discover our WHY?

Refreshment Break/Visit Exhibits

9:30 am - 10:30 am


For the first time, the AAPL Annual Conference will feature a breakout panel tailored to the individual needs of business development leaders and liaisons. Too afraid to ask your manager or staff a question when you "should" know the answer? This is your opportunity to ask candid questions and get straight answers from colleagues who understand you and the role you play within your organization. In the coming weeks, conference attendees will receive a brief survey monkey with questions intended to help us draft thoughtful questions for our panelists. Please take the time to complete this survey and submit your questions. Attend the conference breakout session and you will finally get the answers you have been looking for!
