Astronomer Jack Horkheimer’s informative and engaging prose inspires this corporate communicator
Let’s face it, when you think of heroes, communications is not the first profession that pops into anybody’s head. Police, firefighters, doctors, scientists, and military personnel have the market on heroism fairly well cornered. But I’d like to suggest that we have had our share of heroes, too. People who have fought the good fight for clear, effective, compelling and motivational communications; people who have inspired others. And people who have done so with dignity, passion, enthusiasm and grace.
This has been whirling through my head of late, ever since I read Jack Horkheimer’s obituary. Jack Horkheimer was one of my heroes. An unlikely one, but a hero all the same.
Maybe you’ve never heard of him. Or maybe you more readily recognize him by his stage billing: “”Star Gazer.””
