"It isn't professional development if nobody develops," - Dave Childers
Simon Sinek didn't just do a TED talk on passion, he started a fire that eventually led to Level 33 Consulting. Well, not a literal fire. One of those figurative fires. What do you call that...hyperbole? Simile? Metaphor? I should probably Google that, but I digress.
I have been in education for most of my life. Since before I was 5 years old, I have been either attending or working in a school - and for many of those years I have done both. I have been the student, the teacher, the professor, the facilitator, and the attendee. I believe in education. I believe in the power of education to transform and transcend. But...I also believe we can do more. And we can do better. That's why watching Simon Sinek's brilliant talk inspired me to create Level 33.
So far the opportunities have been amazing. I've worked as close to home as an hour, and as far away as six time zones. I have met the most incredible people, and received some of the most incredible feedback and reaction to the work that I so love doing.
This adventure has also allowed me to work on professional development experiences that serve audiences of hundreds. That allows me to customize a team - not just content - to ensure that wherever Level 33 has gone, people have developed. I have an amazing assortment of like-minded team members to draw from. They make me look really smart.
I'm happiest when I'm working and making an impact. I'm ready, and so are the rest of the amazing people that make Level 33 so special. That said, I would love to customize something that will start a fire in your organization. But, again, not a literal one. A metaphorical one. Yes...I looked it up.
