Little Kindness Big Opportunities

HagerSharpTwo years ago, after my lecture for the National Oral Health Conference in Huntsville Alabama, I grabbed some dinner at the hotel restaurant. When I went to pay my bill,  the server told me it was taken care of. I inquired by whom. I walked over to the ‘lady over there.’ Shelly Spoeth, currently a VP at Hager Sharp explained that she wanted to do a kindness for the kindness I shared by telling my story. We became fast friends.

Today, Shelly’s company @HagerSharp sponsored my presentation, ‘Ignite the Power of Story,’ at the National Conference on Health, Communications, Marketing and Media.  The theme of this years CDC’s conference is “What’s Your Story?”  Attendees share stories to build awareness of their programs, solicit new funding, and educate the general public about healthy living.  Stories are a tool for effective communications and they wanted to sharpen their storytelling tools.

Networking. Meeting new people. You never know how a little kindness can change worlds!
