Re: Shaping the Conversation ... I'm an American but have followed the UK proceedings with interest. I thought King Charles said something interesting and related in his first speech. Speaking of William becoming Prince of Wales he said William and Kate would "...continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marginal to the center ground where vital help can be given. Different context of course, but what you have is an active pull of from obscurity into the spotlight. In some ways you do this with your newsletters. I do like your thought of bringing more good ideas in from the darkness. If we want to see more of it we can start by doing more of it ourselves, right?

Have a good one, Lib!
