A Winter’s Tale

This year we welcome best-selling author and corporate executive Steve Pemberton as our speaker. The story of his rise from devastating childhood abuse inspired a movie and ran in The Washington Post in June:

Steve Pemberton was a forgotten child, abused and neglected and kept under the thumb of a punishingly cruel foster family in Massachusetts. Through sheer force of will, he decided to get revenge on the family that told him he was worthless by setting his sights on achievement.

That single-minded drive helped him graduate from Boston College, and eventually find a wife, have children – and become a top executive at companies such as Monster.com, Walgreens, and GloboForce.

Reserve your seats to hear Steve Pemberton tell his story.
