I’ve been teaching Entrepreneurial Marketing at UC Berkeley in their International Certificate Program for the past year, and I have to say, it is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding things I have ever done professionally. Not only am I able to share my knowledge, but I am fortunate to meet people from all around the world. Last week my fellow sailing enthusiast and friend Andrew Lacenere was kind enough to come and speak to my class about his company Albatross Designs. I’ve spent time with Andrew on the water sailing of course, but I’ve never seen him with a Power Point Presentation, however, as suspected, he did not disappoint and he left my class inspired and me with a sense of urgency in saving our oceans from the current path of destruction.
After vowing to never again sit on another Board of Directors, I’ve agreed to sit on the Board of the Trident Project and be part of the team that works to address ocean acidification issues by creating research partnerships with some of California’s finest marine research organizations. As a mother, sailing enthusiast, and a concerned human being, I am looking forward to this next chapter of my career and lending my time and expertise to such a worthy cause.
