THE ART BERG TECHNOLOGY CENTER
In 2012, Together We Can Change The World Foundation (TWCCTW), with the help of a grant from the National Speakers Association, built the Art Berg Technology Center at Future Khmer Child (FKC), in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Today, over 500 children are provided supplemental education in two shifts, offering cutting edge life skills training that up levels the quality of their learning and provides them with a strong foundation for a progressive future. In 2014, Autodesk became a sponsor of TWCCTW thanks to their volunteer Rhonda Faught, and her connection to Tom Igou, an executive with the company. In 2016 and 2017, Tom and Autodesk sent Jeff Bartles, one of their top Autocad trainers, to teach the FKC kids architectural design skills.
About Art Berg
Art Berg was a powerful motivational speaker and wheelchair athlete inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame in 2000. Art was going to be the President of the National Speakers Association for the 2003-2004 term and unfortunately passed away before it happened. He was the founder of eSpeakers, an online platform that creates the possibility for speakers and bureaus to better work together in serving their mutual clients. eSpeakers thrives today and serves as the conduit between countless speakers and bureaus. He also authored several books including the passionate bestseller, The Impossible Just Takes A Little Longer. In spite of a tragic automobile accident at the age of 21 which left him a quadriplegic, Art went on to achieve athletic and public speaking success driven by his tenacious spirit and masterful leadership.
The National Speakers Association created the Art Berg Fund in 2003 and "Together We Can Change the World” won this prestigious grant in 2012. This seed money funded the magnificent IT Tech Center and represents the powerful legacy of Art's commitment to personal expansion.
