[Update: 11-15-2018] Social impact from pre-schoolers to veterans!


#10 The Introducer – Veteran Advocates and Entrepreneurs

Globally, November is the month when many countries remember their soldiers – both those that fell in wars and also those who served and came home as veterans.   This edition of The Introducer showcases the social impact leaders who are empowering them to do this.

The breadth of the support offered – often by veterans from within the community themselves – is astonishing.  There’s veteran advocacy provided by Sherman Gillums, Jr, (Chief Strategy Officer for American Veterans) and developing a business mind- and skill-set which embraces their military background (Michele McManamon, Operation New Uniform).  We also hear the heartwarming stories from veterans like Chris Hrudka who’ve pivoted their lives and share their journeys.

Interactive tech inspiring creativity in pre-schoolers

Krister Gustafsson, League Member, is excited to announce that he’s co-founded a start-up, High Impact Learning Spaces (HILS), a tech company that designs classroom technologies that significantly increase children’s creativity. Their proven method, which incorporates an interactive playground called Magic Garden, is a world first with their designs facilitating those creative learning behaviors with accuracy. It helps children develop their talents to be ready for jobs of the future as innovators.

Krister would like to network with League Members who can help with the following:

He wishes to interview what he describes as ‘power networkers’. These are people who, for example, may run conferences or events for the childcare industry or an advisory body. He’s looking for contacts who are well placed to describe what they see is happening with regard to the latest developments of creative preschooling being done with digital tech (and the sector’s reactions to these big changes in the childcare industry). He would also like introductions to senior staff or executives at other large and medium-sized childcare centers/networks.

Krister is working to a tight time frame with this, so would be grateful for all League members who are able to leverage their networks to assist.
