Meet Blaize

Participating in Maverick Conversations has given me the space to discuss issues with like-minded individuals. I felt confident and comfortable that I wasn't being judged. Serving as a moderator opened up my mind and allowed me to learn in-depth about topics ;I was familiar with. I had to take a neutral stance and that allowed me to see points of view that I had not taken into consideration before. Maverick Conversation is a great way to stretch your thinking.
