During 1998 through 2004 she was on the faculty of the United States Secret Service Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) in their training division.

The Power of Narrative in Leadership and Change

 
 
 
 
 
 
shutterstock_413879650.jpg

Lisa Foster is an executive coach specializing in leadership and communications. She has a Ph.D. in English from USC. After teaching English in Los Angeles for 15 years, she founded 1 Bag at a Time, Inc. in 2005 to sell reusable grocery bags. She was among the first stakeholders in the legislative process that led to the LA Bag Ban which became the template for the CA bag ban. While one in ten start-ups survive, Lisa beat the odds in large part due to her ability to listen to, understand, and tell a story in business. When she started 1 Bag at a Time, fewer than 3% of Americans used reusable bags and when she sold it in 2017, over 60% of Americans were bringing their own bags to the store most of the time. As a coach, Lisa inspires others to use their passion and their stories to literally change the world.

"The Galactic Black Hole - A Slumbering Giant"

 
 
 
Black Hole.jpg

Mark Morris

Much of Professor Morris' research is aimed at understanding the innermost regions of our Milky Way Galaxy. This relatively extreme environment is characterized by high densities of stars, gas and energy, strong magnetic fields, and a supermassive black hole. All of this gives rise to a variety of phenomena not evident elsewhere, including stellar collisions, large-scale shocks, powerful magnetohydrodynamic displays, and perhaps a jet from the black hole. Dr. Morris uses radio, infrared, and X-ray observatories to learn as much as possible about this complex region and to elucidate its unusual phenomenology, much of which is likely to be important for understanding active galactic nuclei and galactic evolution.  He is the Associate Director, and one of the founding members of the UCLA Galactic Center Group.
