Simon Sinek is an author, optimist and celebrity TED Talks speaker, whose passion is to help individuals discover their “why”, much like New Look helps youth identify their “spark”, or purpose, early on. Similar to UNL, Sinek holds a bold goal of building a movement towards a world in which the vast majority of people go home everyday feeling fulfilled by their work. This shared vision led Sinek to collaborate with us on “sparking” the next generation of leaders. Since September, Sinek has led two empowering sessions with New Look high school students at our new Spark Center and participated in our recent Start the Spark Experience Signature Event as the Featured Speaker.
