"LOVED It! it was a great event. Key connections, a good diversity of individuals and a wealth of information... As I am looking forward on doing my masters in International Development all of these presentations had key things that I found beneficial." - Event attendee
"I definitely felt re-energized to continue pursuing my goals... I am still trying to figure out what I will pursue for my masters; but my passion is development in Africa in general. I truly enjoyed the forum last Monday, as I have envisioned to be able to open my own organization one day... Thank you so much for all the planning, it was awesome!" - Event attendee

"This week’s "Innovators of Change" forum hosted by the Casimiro [Global] Foundation at the University of Miami reminded me of a few important themes that should be part of our thinking around social innovation and entrepreneurship — and they are themes and reminders I need to hear often. I jotted down a few notes and am always looking for good ideas on how social innovation and social entrepreneurship interact and are helping shape our future." - Aaron Sherinian, Vice-President of Communications and Public Relations at the United Nations Foundation and Innovators of Change Keynote Speaker (see the full blog post at http://globalextrovert.com/miami-conversations-about-social-innovation-and-entrepreneurship/)
