Thank you so much for meeting with the French delegation on October 31st! The delegates appreciated the discussion they had with you and they enjoyed your personality and passion for what you do!
Your hospitality and the valuable discussion made this a unique experience for them. They genuinely valued the time they got to spend with you.
I hope that there will be more opportunities for us to work together in the future, and I again want to thank you for your time. Support from professionals like yourself is what makes the work of WorldChicago possible. Your meeting no doubt enhanced the delegates’ trip to Chicago.
Just to let you know that yesterday was awesome. I truly appreciated your presentation. – Romaric N’DRI
In August 2018, I (sixth from the left) joined other Chicago professionals including Windy City Times Publisher Tracy Baim (fourth from right) in working with a wonderful group of young leaders from Belarus through WorldChicago.
For over two weeks we are meeting with very talented people in various sectors on communications, fundraising, volunteerism, advocacy, research and organizing. Most importantly we are sharing with them lessons around building power. Learn more »

Every bit of advice I received from you is part of my daily mantra of what to do with my organization and most important with myself.
All my best,

Thinkinc. generated news coverage and social media awareness of important research by Journey for Justice Alliance that indicts school districts across America.
The report, “Failing Brown v. Board,” finds that “education in this country remains deeply separate and unequal,” writes Jitu Brown, Director, Journey for Justice Alliance.
Laurie secured high-profile coverage in Wired for the Shared User Mobility Center’s report on how ride-sharing companies such as Lyft and Uber affect public transit use.
Quotes from the SUMC’s executive director reached an engaged audience of 30 million monthly viewers, including thought leaders and policy shapers.
When U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez announced his retirement from Congress and endorsed longtime ally Jesus “Chuy” Garcia for his spot, it was Laurie Glenn who made the news conference run smoothly.
Laurie coordinated between both camps to arrange the setting; led her team in writing Garcia’s speech, as well as the event’s media alert and news releases; and she arranged a Facebook Live stream of the announcement for maximum coverage. Then she got on the phone to make sure journalists had all the pre-event information they needed.
Laurie’s experience and media savvy assured a newsworthy event that garnered significant national coverage.
I wanted to write to say thank you again for your guidance last year. You gave me the courage to focus a bit more on Life Engineer and working towards being financially sustainable and I feel like I’m now on a better track. Thank you!
