Speaking Testimonials

Paulette Ashlin was invited to speak at the Third Annual AHPBA HPB Surgery Fellows Course held in Charlotte, NC, on August 17, 2014. We host all fellows who are entering their specialty training in liver, pancreas and biliary surgery. Paulette joined the top leadership in HPB surgery and her lecture on “Characteristics of Great Leaders” was by far the most well-received. Paulette was a captivating speaker with an amazing connection to her audience, relating to the younger fellows as well as the older surgeons. She was quite the motivational speaker and actively interacted with her audience. The attention level was amazing. The feedback following the program was full of praise, both for her insights and methods to develop and recognize leadership skills. She is that rare individual who can connect instantly with her audience, get them thinking in new ways. We have had multiple requests for her to return for additional programs. Words to describe Paulette: energetic, funny, engaging, and insightful.
