National Restaurant Association CEO Dawn Sweeney describes herself as dedicated to the Japanese spirit of Kaizen – the belief that big results come from many small changes accumulated over time. Approaching each day as a chance to be better than she was yesterday has served her well and has gained her great success at four associations. And while she’s all business, especially when it comes to the restaurant industry, she believes that creating a fun environment and liking the people she works with have also been vital elements of her sustained success.
Which is why it was an easy decision to name Sweeney the Association TRENDS 2017 Association Executive of the Year. Sweeney will be honored at the TRENDS Salute to Association Excellence, Feb. 23 at the Capital Hilton in Washington. Click here for the complete interview. Sweeney will be joined by the other TRENDS honorees at the Salute. (Photo by Chuck Fazio)
