John Wood on Room to Read

Yesterday I attended a presentation by John Wood: former Microsoft executive, author of Leaving Microsoft to Change the World, and charismatic founder of Room to Read. Room to Read has been a phenomenon success in the social enterprise sphere – I actually first learned about Room to Read in a class at Brown University, but it was still extremely inspirational to hear the story firsthand from John. Thanks to Volunteering Qld/Business Roundtable for organizing this inspirational event!

A distilled three minute version of John’s hour-long presentation can be found on Youtube.

You can also catch a different hour-long talk by John on FORA.tv, which was delivered on August 2006 and included additional anecdotes about John’s literary/publishing experience.
