Make Today Matter Workshop

Make Today Matter Workshop


Gonzaga University’s School of Business Administration will be hosting a three-week Zoom workshop to follow-up on best-selling author Chris Lowney’s talk “What 2020 taught us about how to lead in 2021.” The featured book of discussion will be Make Today Matter: 10 Habits for a Better Life (and World).

Make Today Matter, won the 2018 Independent Press Award as “Distinguished Favorite” in the Inspiration category. The book also won a Gold Medal in the 2019 Illumination Awards. Chris introduces readers to 10 simple yet powerful habits that will add up to a better life, and a better world. Those habits emerge through inspiring stories of ordinary people who are making each day count in extraordinary ways, whether in a high school classroom, a hospital emergency room, one of the planet’s largest garbage dumps, or a sprawling, impoverished shantytown in Venezuela.
