It is our pleasure to welcome a new member of the board, our Voice Foundation 2012 VERA Award Recipient, Michael Sheehan. He has been training CEO's policy makers and political leaders for more than twenty-five years. One of America's leading communications trainers and strategists, his expertise embraces every format and every forum whether media interview, major speech or high-stakes Q&A. His ability to help people communicate at the highest possible level was dubbed by New York Magazine as "the Sheehan effect." Michael regularly guest lectures at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and Northwestern University, as well as Yale, where he is currently a lecturer. He has received the Individual Achievement Award from the ASHA.
