61: Making Water the Catalyst for Community Transformation with George Hawkins

George Hawkins is the President and Founder of Moonshot Missions, a non-profit enterprise that offers communities and utilities a choice: 1) to undertake an assessment to identify opportunities for improvements, or 2) to select from a list of model projects that have been field-tested in other communities. George Hawkins is the Harvard educated Founder of Moonshot LLC and just recently, Moonshot Partners, a Professor of Practice at American University and former head of DC Water. He facilitated the transformation of DC Water and Sewer Authority to DC Water and oversaw taking DC Water from some very challenging times to the national and international reputation it now enjoys. George wants to help other enterprises tell their story, create replicable roadmaps and reach their dreams.
