About the author
Author, speaker, master storyteller, business owner, father and grandfather Jim Penny is the author of the nine volume Standards of Knowledge management series, as well as Networking Genius: Getting the People You Know to Make You More Successful Than You Ever Dreamed Possible! and Tell The Children: Values Build Character. Jim regularly takes his message about the importance of values to: children (where he gets to Tell The Children); parents and teachers; organizations, including corporations, non-profits, associations, and faith-based groups; and senior communities, where he reinforces the importance of sharing messages and lessons about values, character and ethics before “it’s too late.” Frequently introduced as, “America’s Values Ambassador,” Jim encourages others to join with him in reversing what he believes to be the biggest threat to the futures of our children and grandchildren, the continuing erosion of values.
