I have been on a fascinating journey for the past few days – a journey which started back home in Toronto and has now brought me to Israel. When I got the invitation to speak at the global "Facing Tomorrow 2011" conference, I first thought they had mistaken me for someone else: the roster of speakers was impressive to say the least.

Then I decided that they must have thought they needed some balance. So that's why they invited me! Luckily I have no ego, so I contented myself with that.
