Opening Keynote: Place Your Bets on You!

This interactive and energetic session will focus your attention on one personal or one professional area that you would like to positively affect.  In our busy everyday lives, it is difficult to find the time to do critical thinking and problem solving for ourselves, and when we do take the time for this, it can have such an affirmative and uplifting impact.  Attendees will have a planning worksheet that will help them chart their goal and actions plans for success.  She will walk everyone through each step of this planning session and will also work together in short, small group breakouts that will help ideas flow, keep energy high, and help folks get to know each other. Along with the planning worksheet, she will provide other tool options so each person can customize a plan to achieve this goal based on their individual needs and preferences.
