Judy was a founder of Thinking Forward, a troupe of professional speakers that inspired executives, managers, decision-makers, and influencers in business, education, healthcare, government, and other for-profit and not-for-profit organizations to open their minds and hearts to innovative, creative, world-class ideas. As thought leaders in their own disciplines, Thinking Forward speakers provided diverse perspectives on a theme of interest, igniting one’s ability to connect ideas, network with others, influence constituencies, and transform the communities in which they work and live—for good!
