International Speaker and Trainer Barbara H. Smith was awarded by ICN Special Envoy Dr. Ruben West after a Series of Impactful Events in Nairobi, Kenya
NAIROBI CITY, KENYA, September 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — While in Nairobi, Kenya international speaker and corporate trainer Barbara H. Smith received the Dr. Astell Collins Global Inspiration Award for her work and service to others. Barbara was hand-picked by several event hosts to be a presenter during the “recovery week” events held in Nairobi, Kenya during the second week of July 2021. According to Dr. Ruben West who conducted the Live Your BEST Life Nairobi event on 17 July 2021, COVID-19 had caused a significant impact on the people of Kenya. No one was exempt. The goal of “recovery week” was to get them fired up again both personally and professionally.
Getting them fired up was exactly what Barbara did according to Dr. Nashon Juma of Nairobi. Dr. Juma coordinated the Women Positioned for Excellence event held in Nairobi, Kenya at the Weston Hotel. He wanted Barbara based on her wealth of knowledge, passion for people and ability to inspire listeners to become a greater version of themselves.
Winnie Joy hosted an event during “recovery week” entitled Leadership In Action. She became familiar with Barbara after listening to The Barbara H. Smith Show, airing weekly on the IBMTV network streaming on Amazon Fire and Roku. According to Winnie, “after hearing her in action I knew I had to have her live in Kenya.”
Both Winnie Joy and Dr. Nashon Juma were on hand to see Barbara receive the I Change Nations Dr. Astell Collins Global Inspiration Award. The award was presented by Dr. Ruben West.
In 2019 Dr. Ruben West was appointed Special Envoy for I Change Nations by the organization’s President and founder Dr. Clyde Rivers. Dr. West carries out his global mandate by identifying deserving individuals and submitting them to the organization for award consideration.
I Change Nations is a Culture of Honor System; the organization is committed to bringing back the lost art of honor by building a Culture of Honor that recognizes individuals throughout the world who have exemplified extraordinary humanitarian efforts to effectively change nations.
According to ICN founder Dr. Clyde Rivers, ICN honors people and organizations that believe every life is valuable and is created to bring a contribution to the world. ICN is the largest “building cultures of honor” network in the world.
Dr. West said Barbara has so many dimensions. Even before coming to Kenya to speak she had identified organizations to support. She continued to find additional ways to serve while in the country. Her impact was so great, she is already scheduled to return in November 2021. I think the people of Kenya have discovered what some companies and communities may have missed in the United States; Barbara provides maximum return on your investment bringing out the very best in your people.
