My Irish grandmother used to have certain traditions to ring in the new year. The first was to bang pots and pans at midnight to make noise, and the second was to light a candle all day, with one door or window open on each side of the apartment or house to let “in with the new, and out with the old.”
Well, I think my grandma would have been proud today to know that the good wind of 2015 brought in a listing of me as one of New York Times bestselling author Kevin Kruse’s top 101 favorite leadership and speakers.
Here is Kevin’s post, and I am so honored to be in the company of these speakers, including the other members of the National Veteran Womens Speakers Bureau. In Kevin’s words:
“Below are my top 101 favorite leadership speakers and trainers. If you are looking for a leadership speaker for your next corporate or association event, I would encourage you to review their work. Most of these speakers I’ve either hired myself for my own events, or I’ve seen them present in various settings. And if you know of someone who you think belongs on this list, just contact me at kevin at kevinkruse dot com.”
Thank you, Kevin Kruse, and may you light a candle next Jan. 1st as I did this year and start your year with the same happiness I have started mine.
