FE NEW MEXICAN WELCOMES
NEW COLUMNIST TO CITY"
The Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper will host
a special breakfast on April 24, 2003 at the Hotel Santa Fe
to introduce one of their new and exciting syndicated columnists,
Olive Gallagher, to the Santa Fe community. Ms. Gallagher,
CEO of Personal Best and author of "The Inner Bottom Line"
is a respected pioneer in ethics and personal accountability.
Personal Best, founded by Olive in Los Angeles in 1985, was
originally created to help senior executives improve their
speaking and presentation skills. However the program, with
it's innovative and provocative ideas on everything from personal
performance to leadership skills and the responsible use of
power, quickly earned the company a reputation as a cutting-edge
ethics organization producing remarkable bottom line impact
and success for its participants.
In 1988, Personal Best sponsored the first television series
on ethics in the USA, "The Inner Bottom Line." This award-winning
show, with Gallagher producing, hosting and writing, aired
for over two years throughout the West to a viewing audience
in excess of one million viewers a month. In 1997, "The Inner
Bottom Line" was transformed into a weekly print column in
California that attracted an ever-widening circle of loyal
readers and debuted in the Santa Fe New Mexican, the oldest
newspaper in the state, in December, 2002, earning an even
larger following. "We have had such a positive response to
Olive's column," states Rob Dean, Managing Editor, "and since
she is new to our city, we felt it was important to personally
introduce her to the community."
"The Inner Bottom Line" has created quite a buzz throughout
Santa Fe during the six months since it began in first run.
Olive experiences this enthusiasm and appreciation daily wherever
she travels in the state and reveals, "It's not uncommon for
a stranger to approach me in a restaurant, a store, even the
supermarket and tell me not only how much they read and love
the column, but also to ask me for help with a problem or
dilemma they've personally been wrestling with in their life!"
The event is an opportunity to meet Olive up close and personal
on Wednesday morning, April 24, 2003 at 9:00 AM at Hotel Santa
Fe. After an introduction by Rob Dean, Olive will offer a
few words on "Taking Back Control of Your Life: Lost Boundaries
& Responsible Power" along with some brief insights and then
answer impromptu questions about personal choices and ethical
dilemmas. To attend, please contact Gloria Minarik at 505
