Instructor: Lynn O’Connell taught her first class 21 years ago (a 4-hour grantwriting class) to help her get over a fear of public speaking. Now, she offers more than 15 courses designed for professionals in the nonprofit or small business worlds, ranging from ‘starting a NPO’ to ‘government bids and contracts.’ Other classes she has taught include circus skills, skydiving, cooking, ESL, interrogation techniques, and acting for attorneys. She considers it an honor to have worked with adult learners as they have learned to do things they always wanted to do – or things they never even dreamed possible for themselves.
