  • The Gift of Growing Older

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Motivational

    Growing older, it beats the hell out of the alternative. AND, we are all doing it. For real, growing older is a gift at any age.

  • The Kiwanis Club of Aurora, Illinois, was pleased to welcome speaker Mike Shereck to our lunch meeting on Jan. 22, 2019. Mike's presentation on masculinity and what it means in the business world and society in general was a real conversation-starter. Mike told the Kiwanis members that any questions were welcome at any time during his talk, which was a great way to engage everyone. After his presentation, several Kiwanians approached me to say how much they enjoyed Mike's talk. I would highly recommend Mike as a speaker.
