Simply put I believe that any of the young guys could be future leaders. The thing is that they have to want to be those guys. There are alot of ego problems esp in that area. Guys just need to put that aside and look at the business. Say its RWA... They all need to think "what will help the RWA show get over?" not "how do i get my shit in and look good?"
Like I have said, I am no big star nor do I know everything. But what I do know is that this may be the worst area I personally have worked in and there is no reason that it has to stay that way.
