What a great coincidence we manage with the help of these tools! I appreciate good writing when I see it -- your intro in this comment didn't get lost on me;-)

Water is my element. If you're ever back in Rhode Island and want to have a great meal, stop at Mamma Luisa in Newport, my friends run it. I look forward to learning more about your methodologies and work. Sailing + leadership sounds like a winning combination.

Thanks for pointing me to this post thru Twitter. It's may be a large ocean but it's a pretty small world; I met your last commenter, Laura Fitton, last week at PodCamp Boston 2 and hope to find a way to collaborate with her on my current project.

We have so much to learn from the ocean and the sea can teach us so much about ourselves. Dr. Ballard is an accomplished scientist, dedicated educator and master marketer. I saw him speak last year at the Business Innovation Forum in Providence, RI and was inspired to go after my dream of using the sea and sailing to develop leaders.

Thanks again for this interesting post. Look forward to our courses crossing again in the future.

The pleasure was mine. I knew I had read some of your work around presentation ;-) Ballard is an amazing speaker and teacher -- humor, wit, and a healthy dose of great knowledge.
