Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
I have received more invitations to perform my lecture (which I would love to do). These included boys scouts, girls scouts, a local elementary (grade 6) and a local high school (Grades 10-11). I was also invited to talk in a local event at a coffee shop (designated “cosmic cocktails”), which aims adults. Interest at the talk was immense, and many of the listeners followed my invitation to attend one of our events that happened a week later (Earth day fest).
