So when I was at the World Economic Forum in China there were a couple of talks that I didn't want to miss. One of them was called something like " The Secret Life of Whales" by Nick Pyenson. I sat in the audience and was so drawn in by what Nick was sharing. I was also wishing that I was either a scientist or an explorer. Then, on the morning that I was leaving someone called out my name at the airport and came over to thank me for all I said on one of my panels, he praised me so much just when I was questioning if I had brought any value not only to the forum but also in any of the work that I do. In turn, Nick also shared that as a young scientist he was questioning what value he could have brought to a business Forum. We had a quick 20 min chat while waiting to catch our respective flights and I'm pretty sure we both felt a lot better for having made that connection. This afternoon I was just sharing this story in my women's group and then I came home to find Nicks book in a FedEx bag on my kitchen counter! We ALL count. Even when we feel we might be too small to make a difference. It's time to come together in support for all those working hard to make a difference. Let's not work in silos. Collaboration is the only way forward! Thanks for the book and the catch up @pyensonlab !!! Can't wait to dig in! :) #whales #science #onehumanity #oneplanet #biodiversity #wef
