Information: In August of 2005 Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast of the United States. John Brophy was among those who were trapped in New Orleans and forced to make due under extremely austere conditions. Choosing to be more than just a victim, he recruited, organized, and led other firefighters and EMS personnel to care for the injuries and medical needs of the approximately 4500 people also trapped in his hotel. By week’s end, the team had worked shoulder-to-shoulder and saw to the safe evacuation of every last person trapped in the hotel. The story is compelling and the lessons in leadership and preparedness are being shared to provide the invaluable lessons and unique insights to attendees.

Over the past 25 years, John has had the privilege of a diverse history of service to the community and the Country. With respect to this presentation in particular, he was recognized for his efforts in New Orleans by President Bush; former Presidents Clinton and Bush; Louisiana Governor Blanco, and Florida Governor Crist. He is a nationally recognized speaker and author in his field. His presentations are a reflection of his perspectives and the insights he has gained from his years of service at home and abroad.

Look for these future presentations…

Event hosted by Barbara Worton, Author

Do you have a hard time falling asleep—just too many things ping-ponging through your head? Author Barbara Worton has a remedy. She calls it sleepwriting. At bedtime, she picks up a pad and pen, and writes down the first words and ideas that pop into her her head. She keeps writing for three pages to get down the story her relaxing mind wants to tell and to slip into a deep restorative sleep.

Bedtime Stories: The short, long and tall tales of a sleepwriter is a collection of tales pulled from the stacks of sleepwriting journals Worton has penned over the years. This delightful book is also a how-to, with sleepwriting instructions for readers.

Literary pundits call Bedtime Stories fast fiction, flash fiction, short, short fiction or even postcard fiction. Genre labels don’t seem to matter for Worton’s readers.

“I enjoyed every delicious page of Barbara Worton’s book, BedtimeStories, but also found it deeply disturbing, since she writes better half-asleep than I do fully awake.” —Ed Begley, Jr., Actor and activist
