Why We Haven’t Fixed Our Diversity Problems

I’ll be the first to say I don’t have all the answers when it comes to diversity and inclusion. I don’t think anyone does, but least of all me. The closest I’ve come to discrimination is being told I had to be three times as smart, competent, and amusing as male speakers because I was a small, young-looking woman. And, sometimes people ask “odd” questions about my religion (Judaism). But just because we don’t have all the answers doesn’t mean we shouldn’t keep asking the questions. The question ...

Launched New Podcast About Professional Speakers and Storytelling

In addition to running Convince & Convert, I am a professional speaker and give many presentations each year on marketing and customer experience. I’m even in the professional speaking Hall of Fame (alas, no bronze bust included). As a speaker, I have discovered that one of the elements that differentiate a good on-stage performance from a great one is the stories: how relevant are they to that audience and how richly are they told. Why are some stories better than others, and why are some stor...

For a Long Winter’s Nap: A Manor House and a Schoolhouse in the German Countryside, Available for Stays

I was in an old bookshop in Dublin, of all places, escaping the cold and leafing through a book called The Foraged Home, when I stopped on a spread of an old schoolhouse in Germany and was instantly entranced. I hurried back to my hotel room to do some Google reconnaissance and discovered more to the story: Tucked in the Mecklenburg countryside, near the rural village of Rensow, the Schoolhouse and a nearby Manor House are the project of Danish/German couple Christina and Knut. The couple was li...

How hip hop and diplomacy made an unlikely partnership

Google “hip hop” and “diplomacy” and what images come up? Black men wearing gold chains and baggy clothes, holding microphones. White men in suits shaking hands, flanked by flags. The contrast is stark: informal/formal, loud/quiet, the resistance/the establishment, black/white. These images reflect common perceptions but also misconceptions about diplomacy and hip hop. Both are, in fact, more complex and diverse than most people realize.But that’s not why I juxtapose these seemingly opposed term...

When cretaceous-age rocks in the Southern US eroded over millions of years, they produced a uniquely rich, fertile soil that landowners realized was ideal for growing cash crops such as cotton. It was the soil from these rocks that slaves toiled over in the era of American slavery—and the same ground that ultimately became the epicenter of the Civil Rights Movement. From Lewis Dartnell’s talk at The Interval, “ORIGINS: How Earth’s history shaped human history.” About the talk From th...
