CPS IS TRAINING LEADERS-WITH GREAT RESULTS
CPS's spring online training program for Certified Conversation Leaders has completed two full cycles, with Cohort C currently underway. Here are some outcomes from Cohort B:
- Jeanette in New Zealand spoke about Empowering Women and Caring Economics at a conference and immediately received 10 invitations to speak all over her region. She also held a gathering in her home and said it sparked a fantastic conversation and an outpouring of gratitude for our work.
- Karen in England hosted a gathering of 16 in her coaching center. Her audience included the UK Ambassador for Women and Business. She is already scheduled to address the British Professional Women's Association in June.
- Eve in France gave a presentation to her 300 students in politics, economics, history, and management at the Sorbonne. She shared with them the CPS "Six Steps" presentation and will include a question about it on her final exam.
- Marisa in Spain used her practicum weeks to translate all the materials into Spanish. She says she carries The Real Wealth of Nations with her everywhere and talks about it with everyone she meets. She has big plans for delivering the presentation around Spain, and she has been invited to participate as a Caring Economics Converstation Leader in a Corporate Social Responsibility forum in Madrid this fall. She is also bringing the language of caring into her work of developing marketing and branding campaigns.
- Susan in Maryland organized a class session for her 30 Masters' students in Social Work around Caring Economics and intends to make it a regular element of her teaching in years to come.
