I am so impatient and consistently think that projects can move faster than they do. My dream of having Communication Coaches with their own video enhanced web site, in conjunction with our site, has taken a lot longer than I thought it would. We’ve had some great adventures along the way, however.
Mike Rossi introduced Mike Hulme and me to Hal Nissley who is the greatest net-worker in the world. He is also one of the founders of the Band of Angels and several other organizations that are flourishing here. Hal knows many many movers and shakers in Silicon Valley. He loves attending big gatherings ( three a day is possible here!) and can remember all the attendees names, their wive’s names, where they went to shcool, how many jobs they’ve had, and the names of all their children. He has introduced us to more people than we believed possible. His expertise is Early Stage Boards. He led us to Bill Cleary, CEO, and to Patrick O’Reilly, Founder of Matchmaker, both of whom have helped us with our new corporation. It will happen.
I am teaching an Influencing with Integrity seminar for Stanford University students and for students of The University of Singapore who are also students in Stanford’s Global Entrepreneurship Program. The Singapore government selected the best and brightest of their young people and treated them to a year in California at Stanford. What a pleasure it is to watch these 20 plus year olds in class. I’m hoping some of them become Coaches in Communication in Singapore. The world needs these skills.
