While the weather this winter fluctuated erratically from torrential downpours and warm weather to record-breaking blizzards and hard freezes, the message in MOS’s presentations remained rock solid: precisely articulate your reason for being, align your mission to every aspect of your organization, and plan meticulously. In the past couple of months, MOS Co-Founders/Co-CEOs presented to four classes in total at Unity College in Unity, ME and Antioch University New England in Keene, NH: Administration and Organization, Experiential Learning Initiatives, Operations and Value Chain Management, and Financial Management Fundamentals II.
Why does MOS speak at Colleges and Universities? It’s simple. The world needs inspired young change-makers to work tirelessly and intently towards personal and community resilience in their academic and professional lives. If everyone is working towards this same goal, and MOS can help facilitate that in many settings, we will have vibrant and thriving rural communities and, in turn, a vibrant and thriving region.

MOS presentations can cover a variety of topics. Over the past couple of months, these professors were keenly interested in MOS highlighting the importance of identifying an organization’s reason for being and how to manage an organization to specifically maximize positive impact.
