Highlight: “Not judging a book by its cover. You never know who you're talking to, and you never know who that person is going to talk to when you're not in the room. And so just being mindful of the human condition is a really big thing for me.” – Evita Robinson

Derive insights from everyone.

Highlight: “I chose the people that made the experience human. But the reason why I bring that up, the line that it draws to my professional life, is I derive habits, inspiration, insight from everyone.” – Evita Robinson

Highlight: “Don looks at me right before he goes out on stage, and he says, “…We brought you here to fully be yourself. Don't feel like you’ve got to change anything… Go out there and go do your thing.’ And that was the last thing I heard before I went on that stage and gave that keynote.” – Evita Robinson

Share your opinion last.
