This weekend I had the most amazing weekend as I participated in the Women's Forum for The American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin www.aapiusa.org . This was part of the Spring conference.
Here I am with the head of the organization Dr. Vinod K. Shah and his lovely wife, Dr. Ila Shah (who is also a very longtime and active Rotarian–a common link we had) and the woman who made it all happen- Dr. Ami Shah. I found out that Shah is a very popular last name 🙂
Ami and I met a year ago in an exercise class and she has her own consulting business and is also a medical director and physician at Pfizer. We have had the opportunity to get to know each other and collaborate on several projects–and she was the Chair for the Women's Forum. She is truly a terrific professional, a great friend and as I say 'Wonder Woman'–she just gave birth a year ago to twins who are adorable!
Speaking on Leadership and Relationship Marketing, I had the opportunity to be with terrific leaders and absolutely wonderful people who came from all over the United States.
As I mentioned when I began my workshop–I was reminded of my wonderful first trip to India three years ago–where I met the most wonderful people, had the best and extremely delicious food and saw jewelry like I had never seen before!!
Here is also a picture of some of the other wonderful people I met.
