The Power of Optimism
Author and consultant Adam Khan.
Adam Khan, author and consultant, presented a program on the Power of Optimism, coming from his book Self Help Stuff That Works (available at amazon.com).

Maginot Line, you might just be the person the Communications Staff is looking for. Apply within.
