Former US Secretary of State General Colin Powell was the keynote speaker at Pack Expo as he gave over 800 delegates a unique insight into what it takes to lead from the front.
His message: Leadership is contingent on strong personal relationships and trust.
“The human connection is vital. It isn’t hard to gather support from people if you make a personal connection,” said Gen Powell. “You’ll know if you’re a good leader if your troops will follow you….if only out of trust.”
