Experts to share experiences at Leadership Forum

By Gretchen Jacobson

For the first time, NACE International will host an interactive Leadership Forum during CORROSION 2018. Scheduled for Tuesday, April 17 from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m., the forum provides the opportunity for attendees to learn from those who set the direction of their businesses and use their management skills to effectively guide teams to reach organizational goals. Participants will gain valuable insights and leadership skills that will enhance their personal and professional lives.

Commander Mike Abrashoff, author of It’s Your Ship and keynote speaker at this year’s conference (Tuesday, 8 to 9 a.m.), will join a panel that includes Richard Hays, senior corrosion engineer at Excet, Inc.; Terry May, founder and CEO of MESA and two-time Malcolm Baldridge Award recipient; and Bill Hedges, acting chief engineer at BP Facilities & Assets. These leaders will share candid stories and provide tools to empower others to take the next steps to elevate their careers and companies. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and share experiences.

The event will be held in the Orange Theater on the exhibit hall floor.
