You’ve heard me talk about how much work goes into planning and executing events. This is a given. But, there are added gifts beyond knowing you are helping make a difference for your organization’s clients.
This blog started with lessons learned from Al Gore. I met and worked with Gore and his staff when he was in Atlanta for the 21stEizenstat Family Memorial Lecture.
A few years ago, I had the privilege of working with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, when she was the featured speaker at the Eizenstat Lecture. What an honor.
A major donor appreciation dinner was held the night before the lecture. Accompanying Justice Ginsburg was her husband Martin Ginsburg, a prominent tax lawyer and professor in his own right.
Learning of Martin Ginsburg’s death earlier this morning brought back a flood of memories and a realization that I was in the company of not one, but two incredible people willing to share their time and knowledge.
That brief encounter from “strangers in the road” taught me more about humility and gave me a deep appreciation for their supportive relationship.
May your life be for a blessing Martin Ginsburg.
