“One of the hardest things about finding a great keynote speaker is finding someone who can relate to the crowd and is able to speak to the unique aspects of the topics at hand. Bati really nailed it. He delivered a great talk and great experience for our audience about the value of volunteering.”
The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) is the premier volunteer awards program, encouraging citizens to live a life of service through presidential gratitude and national recognition. Presidential recognition sets the recipient apart from their colleagues and it is a tremendous honor. Even though one may not seek recognition, ones example can deliver a powerful message that encourages others to take action.
The PVSA recognizes United States citizens and lawfully admitted, permanent residents of the United States who have achieved the required number of hours of service over a 12-month time period or cumulative hours over the course of a lifetime.
THE BATI CREDO
Principles are timeless. They govern our lives and control the consequences of our actions. Principles are universal. They are natural laws that are self-validating. They are realities found at the nucleus of our actions.
The popular social language is often “we control our own destiny” when in fact we are not in control; universal principles control. If we accept that and follow the principles; then in that sense we are in control.
Responsible citizens strive to understand the principles which underlie their actions. Because situations may change, and certain actions may no longer apply, but the principles will remain constant.
