11 of “19 for 19” – Here’s to TED Talks and Toastmasters

Between completing the Competent Communicator Toastmasters Program and winning a TED Talk Coaching series, I am poised to up the game a bit for our clients.

The Amy Krouse Rosenthal Foundation held its first annual Yellow Umbrella Party to raise money and awareness for ovarian cancer early detection research and children’s literacy (two causes important to its namesake).

I was surprised by the surprise other attendees expressed, when I explained that I had traveled from New York to attend the Chicago gala and built work around the date. Because our work takes us all over the country, it is rare to visit a major city without mustering a number of visits to both longtime colleagues and other contacts we have made throughout our trials and tribulations.

It was a moment of great satisfaction to realize that “we show up” is now second nature and a worthy hashtag. Being in the same room like in court, fosters so much more of a connection to truth and purpose and reality.
