Ralph Bruksos of Training Consultants Company spoke at our August 19 luncheon. Execs honored the impact of his speech with a standing ovation.

Citing Viktor Frankl from his book Man's Search for Meaning: “Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'.” Ralph spoke about the power of the "why" and his guests were an example of its power.

John and Marcia Dalton are the children of Jack Dalton. Ralph met Jack Dalton in the early 60's when Jack was serving time at Walla Walla State Penitentiary. Upon his return to Seattle, he recognized his "why" - the need for a community resource that provides housing, employment and treatment for individuals with chemical dependency issues and criminal records. The social enterprise known as Pioneer Human Services was born in 1963 and continues to rebuild lives today. In attendance was the current of Chief Executive Officer of Pioneer Human Services Karen Lee.

Don Bennett lost his leg to a propeller on a boating accident. Don however remained active. He became the first amputee to climb Mt. Rainier on crutches. Don also created amputee soccer. Why - because he wanted to help other amputees achieve the highest level of skill and performance especially those who fell victim to land mines in Central America.

Thank you Ralph and your guests for your inspirational stories.
