Sandra Sobieraj Westfall Incredibly Enlightening at Hospitality Breakfast #BCAProud

This morning BCA transformed the National Constitution Center once again for our signature BCA Hospitality Breakfast.  Our Speakers Series lineup has been fabulous this year and today was no exception. After a delicious breakfast, guests were treated to an outstanding keynote presentation from our special guest speaker, Sandra Sobieraj Westfall. 

We cannot thank Sandra enough for sharing her amazing stories. Through her captivating stories, here are some of our favorite takeaways. 

  • Own your story
  • The upside to sharing your story and risking vulnerability 
  • The importance of building and tending relationships
  • Navigating the tightrope 
  • Adjusting sails in the storm to keep moving forward

We encourage you to share with us your favorite takeaways or moments from this morning in the comments section below. 


Congratulations to our VIP member, Paul Becker, CEO of DDP Roofing Services.  

“Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it.” ~Winston Churchill

Paul is that person who is not afraid to go against the wind, which is probably part of the reason he’s achieved the success he has achieved in life and in business. Paul is a disruptor, not afraid to speak his mind, but that is exactly the kinds of members who make us better. His welcomed disruption, along with his genuine desire to help his others, has earned him the respect of his fellow members and has made BCA better. For that we are very appreciative and couldn’t think of a better recipient for VIP.


A special thank you to this morning’s Charity Spotlight, Philadelphia Reads, for giving us insight into the world of children’s literacy and your work to raise a city of readers. A special thank you to Lisa Formica from FMI Direct Marketing Production for nominating them and introducing us to this great organization.
