This Friday, we kick off our fourth annual Gregg Stracks Leadership Summit. In the weeks following the summit, you'll find stories by and about summit participants here. Today on the blog, we look back at the story of a pharmacy student who atteneded the summit last year.

Having never been to a conference before, I didn’t have many expectations before PCP’s third annual Gregg Stracks Leadership Summit. I just hoped to learn a lot, get inspired, and have fun. Specifically, I wanted to learn about how to grow as a leader, inspire others, work more effectively in teams, and handle conflict with those who may not share my vision.
My list of apprehensions, however, was longer than my list of expectations: being in a new city, catching flights, icebreaker activities, appearing like a naïve student, making good impressions, not being taken seriously as a student, studying for the multitude of quizzes I had the next week, and finding time to sleep.
