"I see ABL as finishing school. I got my undergrad [at Harvard] and never went back, so this is definitely a continuation of my education."
"ABL allows you to set aside everything else and really just listen, interact, and think about a whole completely different set of issues than you will on a day-to-day basis."
"I've been a Member of ABL for the last 10 years. ABL has given me a good group of more experienced executives who've walked in shoes that I am about to walk in."
"I’ve belonged to a lot of organizations, and ABL is, hands down, the best."
"ABL has been a great pay-off for me and I have found great value. It has brought me help in financing the company, resolving financial issues, and customer problems. And it’s served for personal growth, too."
"The best thing for me about ABL is the learning that takes place. I enjoy listening to problems my colleagues are facing and then what kind of solutions are there to deal with those problems. In the process, I gain a wealth of knowledge to improve my business."
"I probably would have to pay 16 consultants to get the kind of great information I get from the Round Tables and the people in my group."
"I've been able to use my fellow ABL members as partners and as an informal board of directors, and the Round Tables keep me current on best practices and trends. In all, ABL has been wonderful to me."
"I got my MBA at university and my PhD at ABL. Some of my closest friends are people I’ve met at ABL. It has opened the door to parts of the Healthcare world that would have been closed to me!"
"What I really like about ABL is the chance to bounce ideas off of other people and see their reactions to the various issues that I am facing in my healthcare business."
"I find the networking and attentive perspectives from people with different stakes in the system to be very valuable."
"Setting aside time from my daily responsibilities at the office that allows me to learn and think about trends in the industry and how they may influence or impact my organization."
"Great discussions and networking. Thought-provoking dialogue - challenging insights."
"ABL can really be life changing, thank you for making it possible. I can’t believe how much I learn from all of you. Mimi should hand out diplomas!"
"I find the broad range of healthcare services and products represented by the Members to be very valuable. I also appreciate the broad range of topics that make me think."
"After the first meeting I was sold. With healthcare reform, the word is partnership – more than any other time in the history of my career – partnerships, partnerships, partnerships."
"The networking with leaders and socializing with brilliant people is just a fraction of the benefit I get out of it."
"I look forward to the high level conversations, and learning new concepts. Very enlightening big picture presentations….providing outside concepts from my day-to-day."
"ABL always provides thought provoking discussions among varying professionals."
