My friend, Amanda Uhle, shared this punch-in-the-gut story from the Boston Globe. Corporate and nonprofit leaders alike need to read it. I’m going to share a story with you now that I’ve never shared before on a public forum. The identities are changed to protect the guilty and innocent. “Anna” was a friend of mine who…

I have had the pleasure of knowing BT Irwin for several years and can say without hesitation that he is one of most inspiring and effective leaders in Southeast Michigan. His visionary take on community building is equaled only by the practical connections he makes between private and public entities—connections that create forward momentum for his organization. BT serves the public and private good in the most admirable way: by leading not because he wants to be a leader, but because his complete dedication motivates others to follow his lead . . . and achieve success.

BT is a relationship builder for the good of the community. He looks for collaborative opportunities to engage corporate partners to become involved in making a real difference…in the very community we live, work and play in. His communication skills allow him to work easily with any group or organization. It is a pleasurable experience to work with BT.

I so appreciate BT’s attention to detail and his visionary and long term approach to community outreach.

BT…came highly recommended by other professionals that I respect. I consider BT a great resource with a can-do mentality and the ability to execute multiple projects on-time. In his current role he is a great asset to Metro Detroit.
