Miriam Altman, co-founder and CEO of Kinvolved, Joins Denver Frederick

It has been said that 90% of success is just showing up, and while that might be a slight exaggeration, it is a big part of it, especially when it comes to school. Yet, up to one-third of student populations in high-poverty urban areas are chronically absent.

Gail McGovern, President and CEO of the American Red Cross, Joins Denver Frederick

There is nothing on this show I enjoy doing more than taking an organization that we are all so familiar with, but don’t really fully understand or appreciate,  and learn about their challenges, all that they actually do, and how they go about doing it. And there may be no finer example of that than the American Red Cross. And it’s a great pleasure to have with us this evening their president and chief executive officer, Gail McGovern.
