Speaking of Roulhac’s time leading Broward Workshop’s 100 CEO members, as well as its two most recent Annual State of the County Forums, Executive Director, Kareen Boutros said these were among the best in her 25 years with the organization. “It’s been said that Juliet leads all meetings with ‘class, smarts and grace,’” she added.
