Shelly Porges, a former adviser to Hillary Clinton, became emotional at Inspirefest 2015 when talking about the former first lady and the tribute Barack Obama paid to Clinton when he won the Democratic Party nomination to run for US president, describing how Clinton had broken down barriers for the next generation of women and girls.

Porges also discussed how some leaders happen to be born as women, what differentiates those at the top from those who don’t make it, and the four lessons about leadership that she learned from Hillary Clinton.
