Recently, I had an opportunity to spend a few days in the Rocky Mountains with some Habitat executive director colleagues discussing our various operations and ways to improve upon what we are doing.

One of those directors is Neil Hetherington from Toronto.  Neil, at age 36, is a seasoned executive director with 12 years leading Toronto Habitat.  Last year they served 75 families.  Neil is a gifted speaker and I wanted to share with you his speech delivered at the TED conference in Toronto in late September.  I found it to be one of the most inspirational Habitat speeches I have heard in a while.  He speaks about the dignity inherent in the design of Habitat’s model.
