José Gaitàn Addresses SEA

thread
Guest speaker J... Guest speaker José Gaitàn with SEA President Mayumi Nakamura and Ralph Bruksos
At our October 14 luncheon, SEA welcomed José Gaitàn as a speaker. He spoke about the "Power of Pebbles".

As we heard, José had a upbringing that was dotted with incredible family challenges. He was able to rise above his situation through the benevolence of many individuals. It was their interest in caring that made a difference in his life.

He compared their caring to ripples in a pond. Each pebble of caring in his life rippled out and caused other ripples to develop to change his life. He asked Execs to cast out their own pebbles and see how the ripples make a difference in other’s lives.

Thank you Ralph Bruksos of Training Consultants Company for introducing José to Execs. All in the room with never forget his personal story and how important ripples are.

Ralph Bruksos Speaks about the "Why"

thread
Ralph Bruksos Speaks about th...
Ralph Bruksos of Training Consultants Company spoke at our August 19 luncheon. Execs honored the impact of his speech with a standing ovation.

Citing Viktor Frankl from his book Man's Search for Meaning: “Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'.” Ralph spoke about the power of the "why" and his guests were an example of its power.

John and Marcia Dalton are the children of Jack Dalton. Ralph met Jack Dalton in the early 60's when Jack was serving time at Walla Walla State Penitentiary. Upon his return to Seattle, he recognized his "why" - the need for a community resource that provides housing, employment and treatment for individuals with chemical dependency issues and criminal records. The social enterprise known as Pioneer Human Services was born in 1963 and continues to rebuild lives today. In attendance was the current of Chief Executive Officer of Pioneer Human Services Karen Lee.

Don Bennett lost his leg to a propeller on a boating accident. Don however remained active. He became the first amputee to climb Mt. Rainier on crutches. Don also created amputee soccer. Why - because he wanted to help other amputees achieve the highest level of skill and performance especially those who fell victim to land mines in Central America.

Thank you Ralph and your guests for your inspirational stories.
