This year's Maverick Summit was all about impact. We were scheduled to be in Puerto Rico and then Maria came. We thought about moving the event - but instead we stepped fully into making a difference.
Day 1) We held candid conversations with local Puerto Rican business owners on the theme of "Overcoming adversity and rising stronger." It was a truly moving day and we are going to get recordings out w proceeds for hurricane relief.
Day 2) Our own candid conversations with members on the same topic and had a surprise drop-in guest. (See if you can spot him in the group pic.) Then we headed out to the mountains to deliver life-saving water filters to 200 families that still haven't had clean water. Several Mavericks stepped up and donated even more funds we are using to multiply those efforts. 👊
Day 3) rappelling down a 80 ft waterfall and adventure in Puerto Rico. We were the first group since Maria to come on the tour. It was awesome! Puerto Rico needs our tourism dollars and they're thankful for guests who come. We also intentionally tried to source as much as we could from local entrepreneurs to support them, including an unusual coconut tour.
The island is a bit beat up but will "rise stronger" 🇵🇷
