Essentially, “The Whistle” is about people. Often high profile people, often high achievers, usually sporting types who through their deeds, help us learn and grow. Most set a shining example, providing clarity around what “works” regardless of our sphere of endeavor. Then there are those who don’t always get it right. They too provide insight and guidance, if by only by showcasing what not to do.
The Whistle is about living and learning.
