Northshire Bookstore Events
Bernie Swain, co-founder of Washington Speakers Bureau and today’s foremost authority on the lecture industry, will be at Northshire Bookstore in Manchester at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 20, to discuss his book, ‘What Made Me Who I Am.’ Swain quit his successful job in 1980 to open his own lecturing agency. Since then he has helped develop leadership transitions for clients like Doris Kearns Goodwin, Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw, Tom Brokaw, Tony Blair and Dave Barry. His book is filled with powerful and moving stories of inspiration, adversity and triumph.
