Five Minutes on Self-Awareness with Tom Epperson By John Sarvay | June 22, 2010
For almost a decade, the leadership at Luck Stone Corporation has held fast to the belief that developing self-awareness is a critical skill for every employee.

Five Minutes on Innovation with Tom Silvestri By John Sarvay | May 4, 2010

It came up at a Greater Richmond Chamber HYPE (Helping Young Professionals Engage) night where they invited me to talk about community and leadership topics. It was really a fun exchange. Somebody asked me, "What does Richmond need," and I had a one word answer, "Innovation." I told them how important they were to the community because innovation feeds off of energy and off of ideas.
