Cultural Entrepreneurship Institute

Have you been wondering where I've been?? Hopefully some of you missed me. :-)

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to attend the first ever Cultural Entrepreneurship Institute for Museum Leaders sponsored by my alma mater, the Cooperstown Graduate Program in Cooperstown, NY.

What a transformative experience!!

The Institute brought together 20 mid-career professionals to learn about entrepreneurial thinking. For most of us, it was the very first time we had ever been exposed to these types of ideas that have been in place for decades in the for-profit world.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I learned during my time there. I met some wonderful people with whom I feel a very real connection, and I was reinvigorated personally AND professionally.

It was the break I really needed -- my shift in perspective gave me some amazing insights during my time there. I am excited for the future!!

I also got some great ideas for articles at my Museums site at -- you'll be seeing those appear on Thursday mornings over the next several weeks.

It truly is a privilege to do what I do. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be reminded of that.
