317: My UN and UNICEF talk on COVID-19 and leadership

Attendees said my talks brought tears to their eyes.

Technically I spoke at the UN last week and UNICEF this week, but virtually not physically there, and to Toastmaster groups organized by UN and UNICEF workers.

Both talks were similar. I recorded the UNICEF talk. I spoke on

  • A past New York City crisis—the 2003 blackout
  • Lessons I learned from it
  • How we risk not learning from the COVID-19 crisis
  • How we can learn from it
  • What I propose we learn from it

Talks were limited to 5–7 minutes, so I could go to that depth.
