    I plan to introduce a speech I’m giving using Gil Stern’s description of optimists and pessimists. Do you have a short bio I can use on Gil as I expect his name will be unfamiliar with Australian audiences – from what I can deduce through Google searches Gil has a varied career but I think I could describe him in a nutshell as an American communications teacher. Also do you have a photo of Gil I could use to adorn the slide as that photo will give me the trigger to deliver the quote.
    Appreciate your help & look forward to hearing from you
    Regards
    Peter Hind

      Hello, I’m sorry but I don’t have any information on Gil Stern. I simply read his quote and found it very inspiring.

      Good luck with your speech!
