[Focus: organization conferences]

How do you keep the vision in your organization bright, the goals sharp, and the people in it working with passion and commitment? Let author, storyteller activist and former diplomat John Graham help you build on the fire and purpose you started with. “There’s tremendous motivation in doing work you know is meaningful,” he says; “meaning is the source of vision, passion and strength, for individuals and for organizations. Connect with that meaning and you’re unstoppable.” John’s message is serious, but his style is informal and humorous, laced with stories from his adventurous life, and from the lives of the heroes honored by the Giraffe Heroes Project.
