Event Description:
The road to success is paved with a lot of truly GREAT decisions as well as many decisions we wish we could forget.  But don't!  It's those same mistakes that, when we allow them, turn into lessons that become touchstones for future decisions.  You can't fail forward if you don't first fail.  Choose to be authentic and vulnerable to to look those mistakes right in the eye and call them what they are, while also celebrating your successes.  By doing this, we can continue to grow as individuals and as leaders in our field.  This is the nitty gritty of being the founder and CEO of your own company.  It's not all glamour.  It is tenacity and true grit to rise up every single time you stumble.  That's how you succeed in life and in business.

Janine Akers is an entrepreneur, CEO and paradigm disrupter.  She has spent the last 12 years building Data File Technologies into a premier health information management solutions company, employing over 200 healthcare data experts.  Over the years, Janine immersed herself in better understanding the ever-changing healthcare regulations landscape.  With this quest for knowledge, she has positioned herself as a thought leader helping organizations and providers navigate the choppy waters of healthcare.

Janine's clear vision and unwavering tenacity are two key leadership traits that have helped her succeed.  She brings an infectious energy to those around her and takes tremendous pride in empowering others to strive and achieve.  Perhaps her greatest strength, though, is humility.  Janine is constantly learning, growing and challenging herself to turn her vulnerabilities into opportunities.  As a true leader, she's constantly recognizing areas for growth for herself and her organization and applying lessons learned each day.
