Audrey’s speech was a personal favorite of mine from our November 2013 conference. She spoke on the topic of moving from opinion based living, to principle based. It is an excellent talk and I highly recommend it for anyone looking to live a life of principle. Her presentation notes are below the video. I highly recommend you check out her website as well.
