Best Practice Luncheon

DMag_03_09_CoverThis Thursday we’re hosting the Best Practice Luncheon in partnership with the Dallas Junior Chamber of Commerce.

“Best practices” is a familiar term in the professional world. The phrase refers to those methods that produce the best results in any given industry by the most effective means.

The idea behind the event is that our best practice as professionals is our own personal development – inspired by Earl Creps’s thought: “My best practice must be me.”

My best practice is me.

Your best practice is you.

We’re pleased that Dallas District Attorney Craig Watkins has accepted our invitation to come speak on this topic. Watkins is the first African American D.A. in the state of Texas. He was recently featured on 60 Minutes and in D Magazine (see the provocative article here) for his work to free men who had been wrongly imprisoned. He is turning the justice system upside down with his approach and is turning heads nationwide.

Watkins will share about his own personal development after coming into a position of great power and being the object of intense criticism.

I heard him speak at a Central Dallas Ministries prayer breakfast in April and he was fantastic.
