  • “During planning for a major city-wide Festival of Ideas, I searched long and hard for just the right speaker on “The Innovative City.” I went thumbs-down on several candidates before encountering Rahaf Harfoush and immediately sensed a perfect fit. I was not disappointed: she held our audience’s attention from first to last, delivered content that totally aligned with our objectives, and did it all in a way that was both informative and entertaining—just the right combination for great learning! We had numerous requests afterward to bring her back to Dallas soon.”
