The 26th annual Philanthropy Day on Cape Cod featured James Morton, retired President and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Boston, as our keynote speaker. With a wealth of leadership experience and a captivating personal journey, Morton shared his insights on how the first 30 years of his life significantly influenced his second 30 years. In this thought-provoking talk, he explored the driving forces behind leadership, the power of personal stories, and how our life experiences shape our actions as leaders. Attendees gained valuable wisdom from a distinguished leader dedicated to fostering potential, promoting social responsibility, and advancing diversity and inclusion.

“Exceptional event. It was wonderful to be back at the Convention Center for an in-person event this year. The plenary session was excellent. The speakers were informative and inspiring. It was nice to hear from local leaders familiar with common issues we all face on Cape Cod.”
