Re: who's your dream speaker?



I would put in a vote for David Suzuki, if you don't mind crossing national (Canadian) borders. ( www.davidsuzuki.org )He is impassioned and compassionate, and a gifted and dedicated spokesperson for the environment and the many issues involved. He gives a powerful and convincing presentation on just about any of the topics that drive the environmental movement here in the U.S., in Canada, and throughout the world. Reach him through the website noted above at his "David Suzuki Foundation" in Vancouver, B.C..   Sandy Rock

>There's an outside chance she may be a bit too controversial, but Anita Roddick founder  of The Body Shop is one of the most inspiring speakers and human beings I've ever heard.  She has a down-to-earth, approachable appeal as a speaker and person, one who really walks the walk.  Her environmentally-conscious business practices and superior cruelty-free, natural products have helped her succeed in many ways.  She's far and away my dream speaker.
