Alex " Nemo - Just Keep Swimming " Zapple CMP, CEM, DES
Director for Meetings and Member Experience, American Society of Nephrology (ASN)
Motivation
The vision of my association is a world without kidney diseases. This overarching goal
drives me in everything that I do; knowing that what I am doing is making a difference
in the lives of everyone throughout the world, and knowing how diligently our members
(physicians and other medical health professionals) work every day through incredible
challenges. I love a challenge and I know that what I am doing matters. I remind myself
of the importance of what we are doing by bringing our participants together, bringing
them cutting edge education, information and networking that allows new innovations
and breakthroughs. When I see the patients that our members serve and know how
hard they fight every day, I know I can succeed. Obstacles bring innovation.

Jeanette " Meeting Strategist Warrior " Stensgaard MBA, CMP,
HMCC, Director of Conferences and Events, Kidney Cancer Association
Motivation
When things get hard, I take a deep breath. Between stimulus and reaction, there is
space. I remind myself that I act in consistency with who I believe I am, and I can do hard
things. What's the first step? Get organized and move forward toward the goal, one step
at a time. If I don't know where to start, I have awesome industry colleagues who do. Do
not procrastinate. Action precedes motivation. Remember your genuineness and enthusiasm
is contagious. And, because I will have worked so hard to overcome this, there is
ice cream in the freezer.

Motivation
From the very first, the love of travel has been the
foremost motivation to continue in the travel and
hospitality industry. Keeping focused on the end result
is the key to success. Having organized over 50
successful association meetings, it is the standing
ovations and kind testimonials from my clients that
keep me going when challenges arise. Recently, at
an industry trade show, one of my colleagues told
me that when she is in a tough situation, she asks
herself, " What would Marianne do? " I am still beaming
from that immense compliment.
Vandana Walia
Vandana " Unorthodox " Walia
Director, Vchilli Group
Motivation
Every challenge is an opportunity to learn, pivot and ultimately
adapt to a new situation-you never know the capabilities and
" superpowers " you can develop and depth you can create in a
business model until you come across new challenges!
