Warren Hebert, RN, CHCE, CAE, Executive Director, HomeCare Association of Louisiana, said, "We had an extraordinary speaker at our annual meeting. Larry Kryske, MS, is a Retired Naval Commander who has studied Winston Churchill for 35 years and is an artist. I was looking for something different in a keynote with 9/11 still fresh on everyone's mind. Larry's CREATING YOUR FINEST HOUR involves an hour-long presentation about applying Winston Churchill's leadership style and formula for success. While speaking, Larry completes an oil painting to literally help illustrate his key points. Churchill led Great Britain through its most trying time, and Larry shows how Churchill's leadership approach can be applied in our organizations today. Larry got rave reviews from the attendees and the association got an oil painting to raffle off.”
