Celeste Headlee captivated the audience of more than 450 attendees last Friday at the LA Hotel for the Southern California 2016 Leaders Breakfast. Everyone walked away from the event with a refreshed sense of conversations. “Over the 18 years that I’ve been a journalist, our conversations are dropping in quantity and deteriorating in quality. I see the effect that has on our politics, our education, and our medicine because I am reporting on those issues daily. Once I found what was lacking in my own conversations, I decided to spread the word as far as I could.” – Celeste Headlee 

A favorite audience quote – “A good conversation is like a miniskirt: short enough to retain interest, but long enough to cover the subject.” – Adaptation of a Winston Churchill quote.
