“Your education – as you have already discovered, is the key to unlocking so many doors – and I urge you to recognize that it has not just been about acquiring knowledge, but about how to learn. I have no doubt that regardless of your field or the role you seek within it – it will serve you well to remember that learning – not just new things, but new ways of thinking – is a life-long venture,” said Ted Miller, event emcee, Co-President of the CWCF and President of DataKey Consulting.
