Elizabeth Suda, Jewelry Designer, Entrepreneur, and Social Activist

Put simply:  the world needs more women like Elizabeth Suda!  After two years working in the Merchandising Department of Coach, she bagged it all and headed for Laos.  Elizabeth was on a mission to understand how local, sustainable crafts made by women could become part of the global fashion industry.  It was there that she learned bout the Secret War in Laos (1963-1974), which left behind 80 million unexploded bombs.  That trip made quite an impact, because before long, Article22 was born, and with it, the Peacebomb bracelet, handmade by local Laotian artists from Vietnam War shrapnel.  Article22 has developed into a global business with an ever evolving collection of jewelry.  This is truly a conversation you can't afford to miss!

Claudia Nankervis, Entertainment Producer

Direct from Australia, Claudia Nankervis, who by the way, is not my first guest from the 'land down under.' That distinction goes to her filmmaker mom, who I had the pleasure and honor of interviewing a while back. Her dad, by the way, Brian Nankervis, co-hosts a RocKwiz, a popular tv music show back home. Needless to say Claudia was introduced to the arts at a young age and she's capitalized on that.
