Harvard.. Thursday

So today was probably one of the best (BEST!!!) lectures I think I've ever heard in any course.. a day full of a 43 year professor (the one who taught Obama!) talking about communications and persuasion. Gary Orren had us for a full day, with a full framework for better targeting and framing communications to persuade others (voluntarily) to change course. WHAT A DAY.








Better? It was topped off with two speakers at the Forum (Agora -- a food market by day, speaking pulpit at night)... unfiltered Q&A. Eric Cantor (http://www.majorityleader.gov/) talking on the budget. The talk was terrific, but HIV activists protested at the end and were walked out. Regardless, an incredibly civil session! Finally topped off the night with a lecture from William Perry. What a day!
