Lee Newberry is a project manager, production facilitator, and conflict mediator with over 20 year's experience in the theatre and live events industry, bringing dreams to life for organizations such as The Burning Man Project, Nike, Lightning In A Bottle, The Portland Opera Association, Portland Center Stage, PSU, The Prague Quadrennial (Czech Republic), Symbiosis Events, The U.S. Antarctic Program, Village Theater, and the Envision Festival (Costa Rica). He realized awhile ago that the most important parts of any undertaking are the people involved and their relationships with each other and he decided to lean into it, prompting a move to OD. He brings to the field an appetite for change, a love of systems, an appreciation for stories, and a keen grasp of the absurd.
I'm new to the Organization Development field, coming from two decades in theatre and live event production. In that world, sweat equity matters a lot and the four most powerful words a person can say are "How can I help?"
My goal in running for the Board is to give operational support to ODN, enrich the membership community, and help grow the organization. Leading with service is important to me and I hope to find my niche in Portland OD at the intersection of what is needed and what I have to offer.
I bring with me a wealth of project management, talent development, and community building experience and I’m excited to find new and interesting ways to apply my background in support of this organization.
