Message from the Dog…Learning from Great Humans written by Cindy Bertram and Miss Zooey provides inspiration via true stories from extraordinary human beings. And we need that now more than ever. Today the world has been evolving into a digital one with a lack of real human communication – in person, face to face, and talking in person rather than texting. In our book, Message from the Dog…Learning from Great Humans, Miss Zooey (the young lady who walks on 4 legs rather that 2 legs) and I share more about these amazing humans.
They are leaders in their own respective ways, have worked in different industries and they truly stand out. Want to learn more about how Captain Kate McCue actually became the first American woman Captain for Celebrity Cruises®, well-known cruise line? Or how Herb Kelleher, Co-Founder, and past Chairman of Southwest Airlines Co. actually mapped out an idea (on a napkin) to create and start Southwest Airlines Co. with a co-founder, which has become one of the most successful airlines today? Another is Rudi Schreiner, President and Co-Founder of AmaWaterways™, who is fondly known as the “Godfather of River Cruising.” Richard Sasso, Chairman of MSC Cruises® USA, is one more, who has more than 30+ years leading and successfully growing different cruise lines even during turbulent times. And Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, Chaplain, Loyola Ramblers Basketball team, became a national inspiration in her role when the team made it into the NCAA Final Four in 2018, as well as when the Loyola Ramblers were in the Sweet Sixteen 2021.
These are just a few of the successful stories we share in our book. What truly makes a difference today is that very much needed human touch. Yes, learning from great humans!
