#IHI09 This afternoon's keynote speaker at the IHI National Forum, at first blush, would appear to be as far removed from Don Berwick as you could imagine. While that was true about his mode of delivery, the message was remarkably consonant with Don's.
The performer was Sekou Andrews, who bills himself as a motivational poet/strategic presenter. You see him here with Forum Co-chair Polly Arango.
You really had to be there to get the full flavor of Sekou's presentations, but I attach this short video clip of his opening moments to give you a sense of his energy and creativity. This audience was ENGAGED!
