Our speaker will be Ashley Smith, who has worked extensively on leadership development and communication effectiveness across the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
A die-hard libertarian in the Rothbard tradition, he has adopted a philosophy of embracing practical libertarianism within the framework of the existing system as part of a long-term strategic plan for change. Acknowledging that every libertarian brings a different set of skills to the liberty movement, Smith's primary goal is organizing and uniting various efforts towards a common goal while respecting the values and individualism that makes libertarians unique.
In the past he has worked as both a Director of Communications and Marketing and a Director of Development, Fundraising and Marketing for a major nonprofit; in various capacities with the US Air Force; and currently works as a project manager directing cultural change programs and budget-cutting solutions for the Air Force. Smith offers pro-bono and paid consulting to organizations on Change Management and Effective Communication.
Dinner will be chosen and purchased by each attendee.
