Community Assembly and “Outside” Speaker

Community Assembly and “Outside” Speaker

We’ll focus on community building and active reflection before handing it over to a featured speaker, who comes from outside associations but offers a perspective and approach transferable and valuable to the attendees’ world.

The featured speaker will be Dorie Clark, author of Reinventing You and Stand Out, which was named the #1 Leadership Book of 2015 by Inc. magazine. The New York Times has described her as an “expert at self-reinvention and helping others make changes in their lives.”

Dorie is a frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review, TIME, and Entrepreneur. Recognized as a “branding expert” by the Associated Press, Inc., and Fortune, Dorie is a marketing strategy consultant and speaker for clients including Google, Microsoft, Yale University, Fidelity, the U.S. State Department, and the World Bank.


“Outside” perspectives can be valuable for viewing situations differently and engage the learners as they think through how the perspective applies to their world.
