Why did I create The Huddle?
Two main reasons:

- A fulfilling global career should be accessible to everyone! As most of you know, I spent a decade in Washington, D.C. It's the kind of place where you just stumble across tons of other smart global thinkers and people who care (really care!) about the same stuff you do. It's a total bubble, and while there are a lot of things I love about living in a larger city with so much going on, I do miss having such easy access to others interested in global health and humanitarian issues. So I created The Huddle to make it easy to expand your global network regardless of where you live. I'm really proud of the lineup of speakers, but I am also proud of the networking potential. I put a ton of effort into ensuring that the connections will be first-rate and that there will be an opportunity to create real relationships.
- To create a forum for global citizens that combines personal and professional development. I've never understood why when you go to an industry conference or some other event geared towards helping you in your career, there isn't more discussion about personal development. Of course it's essential to know about issues and content, but a huge part of getting ahead has to do with working on yourself as a person - your attitude, your beliefs. I specifically selected speakers who have amazing personal stories and who push their own limits. They inspire me, help me see how I can be better and I believe they will do the same for you.
Thanks for your support, and I hope to see you in The Huddle!
