WHAT MADE ME WHO I AM

BOOK DESCRIPTION

When I founded the Washington Speakers Bureau, I never imagined how much it would grow. I have been challenged, inspired, and influenced by the many remarkable and well-known speakers I represented.

I discovered how Bob Woodward found his passion for investigative journalism while working as a janitor; how Condoleezza Rice’s life path was set by her grandfather’s controversial decision over 100 years ago; that Tony Blair’s journey to Prime Minister was almost completely derailed by Mick Jagger; and that Robert Reich’s childhood friend’s death sparked his lifelong mission to change the world.

In What Made Me Who I Am, I share the real life stories of 32 leaders and great achievers in their own words. These stories will enlighten you, motivate you, and have a real impact on you—just as they have on me.
