I have known Spencer Horn for more than a decade. I was on a non-profit board of directors that hired Spencer to be the Executive Director of our organization. We were both passionate about expanding the quality of treatment and support options for children with cancer and blood diseases. I went onto found the Children’s Specialty Center and Cure 4 The Kids Foundation and Spencer worked with a leadership development company of which he became the CEO.
Over the past five years, Spencer has provided leadership and communication training to our organization. Together with his business associate, he helped improve communication, hiring practices, reduce turnover, strengthen trust and team work.
