On Monday, November 14, the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce hosted the 31st Annual Daniel H. Burnham Award Dinner to honor United Airlines President Brett J. Hart with the Award for Distinguished Leadership.
The Award for Distinguished Leadership honors an outstanding advocate for Chicago’s business community; someone who personifies the famous words of Chicago architect Daniel Hudson Burnham in 1909:
“Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistency. Remember that our sons and grandsons are going to do things that would stagger us. Let your watchword be order and your beacon beauty. Think big.”
