Rabinowitz, Deloitte: “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been” (Wayne Gretzky). Barbara Marder, Mercer: “Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.=” (Steve Jobs). Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP: “The big percentage is us, the real people, and we have to say something. You have to speak up. You have to” (Leslie Jones).
