Yesterday was a Big Day for our friend Sayde Ladov as she made her debut as the Philadelphia Bar Association's Chancellor for 2009.
Sayde's been preparing for this moment for a long time. And, make no mistake about this: She's ready.
Sayde is one of the most dynamic and vivacious individuals we've ever encountered. And, she's also remarkably real. Let's put it this way: She's a person who knows her own heart; who follows her own instincts and who is not afraid of her own emotions. People are drawn to Sayde as a leader because they can see that she knows who she is and she knows where she's going. She makes people feel good; she gives them confidence in themselves; she trusts them and empowers them.
These are vital and rare qualities in any individual. In Sayde, they are stellar.
The Philadelphia Bar Association is fortunate to have someone like Sayde leading it into the new decade.
