Bold Talks: Laura Gassner Otting

Laura Gassner Otting

Every time we encounter a problem, whether it's in the living room or across the globe, the first thing we do is ask ourselves, "How Can I Help?" – and, we get in the way of actually helping. We waste our time, we waste our resources, and we get distracted from what really matters. In this talk, Laura implores audiences to stop asking this question and to ask a better one, one that brings a fundamental shift in how we go about solving our most vexing of problems.

About Laura Gassner Otting

Every time we encounter a problem, whether it's in the living room or across the globe, the first thing we do is ask ourselves, "How Can I Help?" – and, we get in the way of actually helping. We waste our time, we waste our resources, and we get distracted from what really matters. In this talk, Laura implores audiences to stop asking this question and to ask a better one, one that brings a fundamental shift in how we go about solving our most vexing of problems.

Laura Gassner Otting helps innovators, idealists, and iconoclasts get "unstuck" - and achieve extraordinary results.

Through Limitless Possibility, Laura collaborates with entrepreneurs and investors to push past the doubt and indecision that consign great ideas to limbo. She delivers strategic thinking, well-honed wisdom, and catalytic perspective informed by decades of navigating change across the start-up, nonprofit, political, and philanthropic landscapes.

Laura's 25-year resume is defined by her entrepreneurial edge. She served as a Presidential Appointee in Bill Clinton's White House, helping shape AmeriCorps; left a leadership role at respected nonprofit search firm, Isaacson, Miller, to expand the startup ExecSearches.com; and founded and ran the Nonprofit Professionals Advisory Group, which partnered with the full gamut of mission-driven nonprofit executives, from start-up dreamers to scaling social entrepreneurs to global philanthropists. She is the author of Mission-Driven, a book for those moving from profit to purpose.

Through her own commitment to give back, Laura has helped build a local Montessori school, co-founded a women's philanthropic initiative, advised a start-up national women's PAC, grew a citizen leadership development program, and completed three charity-inspired marathons-projects emblematic of her passions and values. She's turned on by the audacity of The Big Idea and that larger-than-life goal you just can't seem to shake. She's an instigator, a motivator, and a provocateur, and she's never met a revolution she didn't like.

Pretty cool video, huh?
