Once again this morning the Atrium at One Discovery Place was filled with enthusiastic applause — this time for Discovery Impact: Creating Change. We just wrapped what can best be described as a pep rally led by our chief creative leader and supporter, Chief Operating Officer Peter Liguori (pictured at right).
Addressing the more than 200 employee-volunteers and representatives from the 40 nonprofits working directly with our teams on their projects, Liguori also led a countdown to the official start of Creating Change (followed by cheers and employees quickly getting to work around the building).
Well, now I’m off to meet Gayle and host two social media workshops for many of the 200 nonprofit organizations who applied to join us today. Next up, we’ll have an update on our work with the Cheetah Conservation Fund from Kate…in the meantime, keep an eye on Twitter and @DiscoveryComm and the #ourimpact!
