Biography

When Lynn Price was age eight, she found out that she was a foster child and had a sister in foster care with another family on the other side of town. The impact of that startling news and the trauma of a disconnected sibling relationship continues to motivate Lynn in her life’s work as a social entrepreneur, coach and speaker featured on the front page of Denver Woman magazine and the National Speakers Association magazine. As a former youth in foster care, she set her sights on learning the system from which she came serving along the way as a CASA, shelter volunteer, foster parent, adoptive parent and founder of Camp To Belong. Celebrating over 20 years, CTB has reunited over 10,000 brothers and sisters who live in separate foster, adoptive or relative homes. Her accolades speak for themselves including The Presidents Service Award from President Clinton, Oprah’s Angel Network Use Your Life Award from Oprah Winfrey, University of Illinois Alumni Humanitarian Award and Redbook Magazine Mothers and Shakers Award.

Because…Be a Cause!

What are the business legacy goals that you put on hold, defend the tardiness, excuse the lack of completion, perpetually move down on your list, figure ‘no’ would be the best course of action because the time is just not right? Lynn tears down the walls of hesitation to make your non-profit and social entrepreneurial vision clearer and more attainable with this keynote presentation. She examines the reluctant board, impact expectations and how to tap into hidden resources to begin to shift the thinking of the audience to open to the possibilities of creating legacy and social entrepreneurial goals of an organization.

You Don’t Know Now What They Will Say Then

She touches each audience member with a phrase, story or image to truly understand, accept and embrace their purpose in mentoring and modeling for other people in their lives. Lynn passionately discerns the good in each leadership role within individual, family – personal, professional roles to recognize that the purpose may not even be recognized or acknowledged until later in life.
