Leadership at Automation Creations – “Pulling From Our Strengths”

From Laureen Fleming, Operations Manager at Automation Creations, Inc., and a member of Presidents' Council, a business acceleration and technology incubator program of VT KnowledgeWorks:

When Anne Clelland announced the upcoming New River Valley Triathlon during one of our Presidents' Council meetings, it intrigued me.

I love to swim, but do not get to go often.  My husband and closest friend are both very physically active.  I thought this might be a wonderful way to combine relationships, physical activity, and fun! 

By creating our own triathlon relay team and pulling from our strengths (my friend has been running for about 3 years and competing in other 5K races), I thought this could really work.  An added incentive is my upcoming 40th birthday.  I thought, "What better way to begin my 40s than training for a triathlon with friends and family?"
