Maximum Impact - Strickland

Next are my notes on Bill Stickland, considered one of our greatest "Social Innovators."

Bill Strickland - Social Innovator

Bill is head of the Manchester Craftsman's Guild and the Bidwell Training Center in Pittsburgh. His core set of values centers around the fact that if you build something world class, you will act world class, if you build prisons, you'll act like a prisoner. Give kids a chance by building them world class facilities.

Building world class facilities needs to incorporate art, music (jazz), nature (orchids) and brilliant architecture. These feed the soul.

The arts are a bridge to walk across to a new life.
