[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? As author, storyteller, activist and former diplomat, I can help you build on the fire and purpose you started with. There’s tremendous motivation in doing work you know is meaningful—meaning is the source of vision, passion and strength, for individuals and for organizations. Connect with that meaning and you’re unstoppable.” My message is serious, but my style is informal and humorous, laced with stories from myadventurous life, and from the lives of the heroes honored by the Giraffe Heroes Project.
