"Town Hall members traveled to the Taj Mahal, the Amazon rainforest and the monolithic rock-cut churches of northern Ethiopia. They joined Dean as he bonded with mountain gorillas in Rwanda and provided school supplies to the Achuar, a group of indigenous people living in Ecuador.

They laughed, they cried and remained engaged the entire presentation, thanks to Dean’s effective use of humor and relatable accounts of self-reflection."
