What do you do after training leaders in every nation? This was the question that needed to be answered by my nonprofit organization, EQUIP, this year. That’s because in June 2015, we introduced our leadership training into our Final Nation, Kiribati.
What a wonderful thing to celebrate! Which is what we did, at this year’s Leadership Open, held October 20-23 in Pebble Beach, California. More than 150 donors and associate trainers joined us for the annual golf tournament and fundraiser.
Every evening, it was a joy to share the details of the past year’s events, along with an exciting vision for our future. We talked about how all these years of leadership training worldwide have prepared us to expand our vision to launch a new initiative called Salt + Light.
And of course, each day we also played golf in a beautiful location.
The Leadership Open is one of the highlights of my year, because I get to share it with amazingly passionate people, who share my heart for making a difference in this world.
