Jewel Diamond Taylor was the ‘trainer’ who addressed the Inland Empire  Non-Profit Resource Development Coalition for it’s monthly meeting last week at the San Bernardino County Dept of Behavioral Health Education Center.    Taylor is a well known and highly regarded motivational speaker who is known for speaking to packed auditoriums. This time she was able to switch gears and focus her attention on this small class of non-profit, public service young professionals.

She spoke on how technology is changing the way we look at the world and how it is rapidly changing and becoming highly competitive. It was empathized that small businesses to the biggest and most established enterprises must adapt or disappear in response to the forces of technology and/or human creativity.
To succeed in business, you must know who YOU are, not only your brand but also how you are perceived by the public. It was also stated on how to maintain these VALUES while endeavoring to ‘ride the crest of the breaking waves’.   ‘Know Thyself’ is as important as ever.
Frank Kelly, co-trainer and founder of the “NO DRUGS AMERICA”  drug abuse and addiction prevention & intervention programs, also spoke at the meeting. His programs have  become part of local community services across the County’s High Desert communities from Victorville to Barstow. Kelly shared information regarding the foundations upon which his program was built, which include classes, certifications,  learning community resources who were aware and/or concerned about the problem, and   collecting factual evidence about local issues. These are the nuts and bolts of how to build and maintain a vital community health and service program.
