You inspire people by your very actions. You may not know it but they see it, they gravitate to you for that.

Carol Stream, IL (PRWEB) February 27, 2015

“You inspire people by your very actions. You may not know it but they see it, they gravitate to you for that.” These words come from Major General (Ret. U.S. Army) N. Lee S. Price., as she stood up and encouraged both women and men in attendance at a dinner this week.

Connected World magazine, along with Price gathered together on Tuesday evening to honor the prestigious 2015 Women of M2M (WoM2M) at an awards gala.

Addressing the women, Price said, “I sincerely appreciate the position you ladies have taken and the platforms open to you. It is important to remember history, and we all conveniently forget it.”

The annual WoM2M is comprised of some of the most powerful women in the technology sector, representing many of the largest, most innovative companies in the world.

“I am very pleased to be able to honor the 2015 women of M2M,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine. “Each year I am able to work with a great group of women and this year is no exception. The women we are recognizing this year lead with grace and equanimity and are surely risk takers as we all learned from General Price’s amazing presentation.”

The 2015 WoM2M have been chosen because they each bring a unique lens to their respective companies, helping push connected technologies forward to help their companies become better corporate citizens and technology leaders overall.
