Women Tech Awards – WTC Fills Grand America to Honor Leaders

As Chairman for the Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum (UVEF) I today attended a great event to honor world-class leaders. Proving that the “glass ceiling” has been shattered, today’s Women Tech Awards played to a packed room of hundreds at the Grand America in Salt Lake City. Founded and led by the Women Tech Council (WTC), today’s event honored great accomplishment in five areas covering the gamet of women rising to greatness.

Keynote Speaker, Anne Dwane – CEO at Zinch, spoke about the accelerating rate of change facing business leaders of today. She honored recipients for their exceptional ability to embrace and leverage change and to forge ahead to greatness.

I was humbled at the amazing intensity of the lives of these worthy recipients and perhaps lifted my vision of the future a bit.

Of the 14 Finalists, 5 were singled out for special recognition:

Education Excellence      Laura Hunter, Utah Education Network

Rising Star                             Chiao-ih Hui, L-3 Communications

Entrepreneurial Excellence   Padma Allen, TechnoDyne

Technology Innovator     Carol J Campbell, ATK Aerospace Systems

Leadership Excellence      Carol Fineagan, EnergySolutions

From PilmerPR & UVEF, Congratulations ALL!
