Eric Lui’s Plenary Keynote from NCDD Seattle

Today we’re featuring something a little different — one of the live recordings Jeffrey made during the conference. This plenary talk was given by author, educator and civic entrepreneur Eric Lui during our “Framing & Welcoming” plenary. Eric is founder of the Guiding Lights Network, which promotes and teaches the art of creative citizenship. Eric served as a White House speechwriter for President Bill Clinton and later as the President’s deputy domestic policy advisor.

Watch the blog over the next month or so for more videos from NCDD Seattle, which brought together 400 leaders and innovators in our field.  You can also check out Jeffrey Abelson’s Song of a Citizen YouTube channel and in our NCDD 2012 Seattle playlist on YouTube.
