Opening Radio Show Panelist Profiles


On The Possible Society In Motion Show
So much to say, never enough time. 

However, allow me, after the fact, to introduce last night’s opening Possible Society In Motion radio show panelists.

If the world does not end today, as predicted, I will get as much up here, today and through next week as time allows, deriving from last night’s show.

It was awesone! A fabulous experience. Everybody participating was awesome, especially the conference call portion. Much more to come, if the world does not end today. Or tomorrow? Or Sunday? (Some give the “ending” a window of a few days.)

Jim French
 
Jim French is a former association executive for two high-tech, international industries. Over the last ten years he has served as the local producer for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in Frederick, has taught continuing education courses for Frederick Community College, and is currently serving as Board President for the Maryland Shakespeare Festival. Jim maintains a vibrant interest in international issues through the World Affairs Council and seeks to reduce polarization at home and abroad.

Dana French
Dana French has had two careers over the last 50 years. The first was 30 years as a Naval officer during which he was a commander both afloat and ashore and the designer of the Navy's central leadership training program for all officers and enlisted personnel. His second career as an organization development consultant has been with various public and private clients nationwide offering teambuilding, strategic planning, executive counsel, and conflict resolution.

Local community service has been with various programs and non-profits addressing poverty, the arts, community leadership development, and creating an infrastructure of collaboration in Frederick County, Maryland.

While serving on the Committee For Frederick County, he developed a Code of Civility and an initiative to get candidates running for elective office to agree to abide by the Code during their campaigns and after being elected.

Many thanks to our panelists, Jim and Dana. Not only for their exceptionalism as models of moving "beyond polarization," but also for their time and spirit in helping me put this opening show together and on the air.
 
Much more to come!
