WHAT YOU LOVE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO I get to help students and business leaders get big results by forging connections with themselves, their teams, and their organizations. WHAT ABOUT NEW ORLEANS INSPIRES YOU? New Orleans celebrates individuality and meaningful and authentic connection. In fact, I dedicated my book to "The City of New Orleans, where you don't have to be perfect." WHAT YOU SEE AS OUR FUTURE My hope is that we find a way to transform our abundant creativity into an innovative tech hub. NECESSARY EXTRAVAGANCE Having Aimée Gowland (ALG Style) help me pick awesome outfits for big speaking events FAVORITE THING TO DO HERE TO RECHARGE Take a walk in Crescent Park, where beauty meets industrials meets funky meets the Mississippi River FAVORITE COCKTAIL French 75 at The Chloe FAVORITE CLOTHING STORE Azby's and Febe BEST MUSICAL CONCERT EVER The Sept. 8, 2005 U2 "Shelter from the Storm" concert in Houston, where we evacuated. The relief concert was almost a spiritual experience.
