Gift of GILD winner announced

July 28, 2015

Our Gift of GILD program gives our readers—like you—the opportunity to nominate a deserving colleague or friend to attend our Global Institute for Leadership Development® for free. We are proud to help you recognize the people that inspire you by awarding a deserving individual with the opportunity to participate in this transformational learning experience. And when we receive glowing nominations like we did from Suzy Elliott’s colleagues at Valero’s Wilmington Refinery in Los Angeles, California, it’s even more special.

Suzy is the Human Resources Director at Valero Wilmington Refinery. Her colleagues describe her as an “inspiration to many people around her.” As well as being “known as a big-picture, strategic thinker who provides a true ‘seat at the leadership table’ among her peers that are traditionally educated as chemical engineers. Her enthusiasm is contagious and at times quite charismatic. She’s earned every opportunity and never takes anything for granted. She helps many people, both financially and by sharing her time. Suzy is an amazing individual that people friend for a lifetime.”

So, congratulations, Suzy, on winning the Gift of GILD! That’s a resounding endorsement, and we can’t wait to hear about your experience.

The good news is not everyone needs to be nominated to go to GILD, and it’s not too late to register. So what are you waiting for?
