Opening Keynote - Building your Rickabamboo and other Leadership Lessons from The Princess Pat

There's a beloved camp song that holds several lessons about leadership and the essentials that a leader must take in order to succeed. This keynote elevates what we can learn from "The Princess Pat", deciphers exactly what she took, and encourages us to look inward and at our past in order to prepare for the journey ahead.
