This is my slideshow from my Forester Lecture held on 9.22.11 at Huntington University.

I was asked to share a bit about my professional and personal journey over the past few years as well as present on the rise in social entrepreneurship.

I presented ideas on why I think that it's never been easier to start a movement and do something significant. Communication technology is removing tremendous barriers and making an organizations reach much further.

My hope was to challenge the students at HU that they can make the ideas in their minds happen and the environment at HU is setup to help them succeed if only they tapped into the resources there.
