Self Enhancement Inc. president and CEO Tony Hopson delivered a rousing keynote at the celebration of the 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon on October 2. SEI is a Portland nonprofit that has supported at-risk urban youth for the past 31 years.
In his speech, Hopson spoke about making his mother's birthday wish come true, access to healthcare, the importance of Oregon nonprofits, It's a Beautiful Life, and much more. It is impossible to explain how Hopson, a consummate storyteller, was able to weave such disparate topics into one inspirational speech, so if you missed it or want to watch it again, check out the video below courtesy of Self Enhancement Inc.
