*** Speaking Upwards - Public Speaking with TEDxer Raymond Poole***
I Ray Poole Biography:
Ray Poole is a husband to Rebecca Poole who was born with cystic fibrosis. A graduate of the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical and Materials Engineering and later Indiana University with a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA), Ray has recently worked as an Engineering Manager and a Product Manager in the electrical industry.
Ray became involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) and was named “Milwaukee’s Finest” and is a member of the CFF Leadership Board chairing the Tomorrow’s Leaders group for young professionals. Ray holds a third degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and has trained and competed in several martial arts including Muay Thai and Jujitsu which influenced the title of his first book: “Lessons from a CF Cornerman: 38 Lessons I Learned During my Wife’s Illness and Lung Transplant” which is available on Amazon.

II We last spoke in later 2016. What's changed with you since then?
a. Ray: I am launching the Hospital Comfort Kit for patients and families admitted to the hospital. It is an alternative to the standard flowers and candy that people sent and contains items many people don’t realize will help. A small cooler, water bottle, and Bluetooth speaker can all make the daily experience better. We even include a “Hospital Survival Guide” with a ton of helpful hints and explanations. It will be available in late May 2018. Visit http://www.cfcornerman.com/products.html for updates and to purchase. A portion of the profits will go to charity.
b. If you are interested in great networking opportunities, professional development events (like public speaking and personal branding), and a chance to support a great cause consider Tomorrow’s Leaders at your local CFF chapter. https://www.cff.org/Get-Involved/Participate/Tomorrows-Leaders/
