AS CHIEF INSPIRATION OFFICER, Ali is a dedicated leader, an insightful advisor, and a master facilitator. Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.” Ali is an extraordinary communicator who places a strong emphasis on the way we craft and deliver our message, vision, and values. She rallies employees, customers, and colleagues around the vivid future she sees. She is magnetic, leaving everyone energized, enthusiastic, and electrified. Investors want to back her, employees want to work for her, customers want to buy from her, and everyone wants to be a part of her world. She embraces and brings tangible meaning to the words of Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
AS FOUNDER, PUBLISHER, AND EXECUTIVE EDITOR, Dennis believes that “enthusiasm opens the door, but vision grabs hearts and minds and pulls everyone to the other side.” He carries a vivid image in his head of what our future could be. The friction between “what is” and “what could be” burns him, stirs him up and propels him forward. When our team is facing insurmountable challenges or the prospect of defeat, he radiates hope, confidence, and possibility. His unshakable optimism and overwhelming confidence in the BC360 vision is palpable, day in and day out. Dennis embraces the time-honored notion: “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.” Which is why we proudly commit a portion of our BC360° content to the notion of “paying it forward” along with a portion of our BC360° profit to worthy causes.
