Drew Morrisroe to Address The Magellan Group, “Success Through Giving Back”
“Success Through Giving Back,” Drew Morrisroe, Founder, President and CEO of CTN Solutions.
Drew Morrisroe attributes much of his business and personal success to involvement in a number of non-profit and charitable organizations, although the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) Foundation has been a special focus of his efforts. He involved HOBY with the 1997 Presidents’ Summit for Volunteerism and established programs in Europe and the Middle East. He will share inspirational stories from “the front lines” of his extensive travels to countries such as Bosnia, Kosovo, Serbia, Israel, and Guatemala, working with people affected by poverty, war and genocide and establishing leadership training programs. He discusses getting involved with non-profit boards and organizations while maintaining your “day job” and inspiring your own team or organization.
[Note: This program will appeal to younger professionals, so members are encouraged to invite millennial generation members and graduate students to the presentation]
