WOWSEPT18Soul On Fire, Inspirational Speaker “Beauty From Ashes”

Guest Speaker: Danette Haag
Danette is a wife and mother of 4 children. She lives in Windsor, Colorado with her family and loves playing in beautiful Colorado outdoors. She is an established business owner with her husband Mike; an inspirational speaker, a registered nurse, and a competitive runner.

As an inspirational speaker, Danette uses her 37 years of valuable, personal experiences from living through and living with a severe childhood burn injury. Inspiring others to see their own greatness by sharing all that she has learned from walking with courage, healing her soul, and growing her faith.

Soul On Fire is based on the idea that scars are scars. That everyone has been hurt by something or someone; leaving scars behind as a result.

Danette shares her personal message in order to inspire others to move beyond their own life challenges and walk in peace, courage, and strength.

UnnamedNominations Open for 2020 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics!!

To nominate a business or nonprofit or to submit a self-nomination, click here.

Members of the public, community leaders, businesses and nonprofits can nominate outstanding ethical organizations in Northern Colorado and Wyoming for this prestigious award, INCLUDING THEIR OWN COMPANY!!

To be eligible for the Torch Award for Ethics, an organization must:
– Be in business for at least three years
– Be in good standing with BBB
– Be free from government action
– If a nonprofit organization, be accredited through BBB’s Charity Review process.

This year, businesses or nonprofits which are nominated will be informed of the nomination and invited to complete the Candidate Selection Form. This short questionnaire asks for details about the nature of the business or nonprofit as well as basic questions about the ethical foundations of the organization.

Each organization will be vetted to ensure they meet the minimum qualifications. Those who pass vetting will then have their Candidate Selection Form reviewed by a Torch Candidate Selection Committee. This committee will select the business and nonprofits candidates who will be invited to prepare a full application for the 2020 Torch Awards for Ethics.

In addition to the prestige and recognition for BBB Torch Award for Ethics winners, participation in the process gives organizations a number of benefits. BBB’s TRUST! Criteria, used to judge the award, are a great framework for a company to evaluate its values and processes to ensure it is building trust with all stakeholders. Past Torch Award participants have praised the Torch Award process for its ability to give them new insights into how ethical principles are communicated and practiced throughout the organization.

In addition, candidates will have the opportunity to work with BBB’s Ethics Scholar interns, all of whom are upper-class students from the three universities in the service territory. Not only does this help provide additional learning experiences to university students, but it also gives Torch Award candidates a chance to connect with talented future members of the workforce.
