"No soldier in this command contributed so much toward maintaining the high morale of the soldiers in this organization during the period of combat."
Every organization needs to revitalize their events by inviting speakers with invigorating and inpiring talks that remind us of our better natures. Effective speakers transcend the stage and become partners at your event, truly engaging and connecting with your audience to build morale. They raise awareness for your mission, grow engagement, boost membership, and grow fundraising efforts.
In 2019, if your organization is hosting an event, you need a speaker with a relevant, moving presentation that presents a timeless story. You want an unforgettable storyteller who can move your audience. You want your audience to recall your event and its speaker for years to come.
Marie Biro's inspiring presentation, a true story about her grandpa's Bronze Star, is an unforgettable inspiring message that is needed now just as much as it was needed during WWII. The story is an important reminder of the importance of our messaging and communication in an era of constant online chatter.
How Letters Defeated Nazi Germany and Can Save Us Now
Marie Biro's grandfather William Weber won the Bronze Star for his actions during the Battle of the Bulge in WWII in 1945. His Bronze Star Citation read "No soldier in this command contributed so much toward maintaining the high morale of the soldiers in this organization during the period of combat." What had William Weber done? The answer might surprise you. His actions were peaceful and nonviolent, and yet they were considered some of the most influential during this pivotal battle. Under consideration for the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. and honored by the United States Postal Inspectors on Veterans Day 2017, William Weber's remains a timeless message that continues to save lives.
