Weekly Update: August 14-20, 2023

We got a great service on narrative and leadership Sunday, and we didn't even need a Max subscription.


Bruce Craven, author of "Win Or Die: Leadership Lessons from Game of Thrones," returned to UUVerdugo where he presented a talk that drew together Joseph Campbell, Toby Keith, multiple business professors, and JRR Tolkien in his discussion of the leadership of Daenerys Targaryen, a central character in George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice And Fire series. You can view his accompanying slide presentation
