AREAS OF EXPERTISE
I am writing to express our sincere appreciation for agreeing...to moderate the United States Mission to the United Nations' panel. Lessons of the Holocaust: Confronting Today's Bigotry. Your incredible preparation and insights added so much to the whole presentation.
The event was nothing short of a smashing success on a variety of levels. Your professionalism was readily evident throughout the discussion, and your well-prepared talking points and seamless transitions added powerful insight into the challenges we continue to face when confronting bigotry in today's world.

There are people who, from time to time, have the power and spirit to influence others by their words, deeds, and sheer force of personality. These people inspire, encourage, and know how to thrive even in the face of adversity. They have lived a life filled with challenges, opportunities, lessons, and optimism. They have learned, grown wise, and can articulate a message of hope and spirituality. Julian Phillips is one of these rare individuals.
I have heard Julian speak of his journey and the lessons learned on a number of occasions. He speaks from deep within his soul and in a way that both inspires and draws empathy. He has been blessed with the talent to think deeply and articulate in clear and compassionate ways. His message is one of courage, of personal growth, and of a journey that has had the highs and lows that are so typical of life today.
Julian's personal warmth and sincerity resonate with people from all walks of life and of all ages. He is easy to to be with and around. He draws people to him as a moth is drawn to the light. His depth of emotion and his open way of expressing that emotion provide inspiration and motivation to those who have the good fortune to hear him speak. If you have the opportunity to hear his story, you will be impressed. I encourage all to listen.
—Sally Mason, President, University of Iowa
