You as a Global Leader
" Be the change you want to see in the world."

This month, we are proud to feature two articles on thought leadership. This topic was a popular request in our recent survey of people around the world.

Denise Brosseau is the author of the book, Ready to Be a Thought Leader?

She has graciously agreed to write a special article for our bulletin and to grant us permission to reprint a chapter from her book that illustrates a real life success story.

We interviewed Van and Denise last week. You can see that interview as a Zoom recording HERE .
