I was recently invited to be a keynote speaker at the International Downtown Association. For the first time in my life I was introduced with a haiku! Sam Grabarski, legendary Minneapolis leader welcomed me with the following:
“His thoughts are droplets
They combine as torrent
To flood with culture”
Then in the middle of my speech , I was interrupted as you can see in the video above.Much thanks to the 800 downtown leaders who came out for the talk. And thanks to Sam, for his inspiring poem.
