We have a history of starting a new year with a motivational speaker.
A great speaker can help us focus on goal evaluation and a fresh look for the future
of our personal and organizational career. This year we have Mr. Tip Fallon who
is a seasoned motivator to lead us in evaluating where we are and where we are going.
Short Description of Presentation: In this session Tip will share insights, tools,
and strategies to start your year with more power and clarity in reaching your goals.
You will work on an interactive process to clarify your purpose, most important
goals, barriers, resources, and areas of power you have in your life. While there
is truth in Henry David Thoreau's observation that many people lead lives of quiet
desperation, a part of the beauty of life is that we are able to break free of parts
of our past and craft new futures with the right intention and approach.
How will attendees benefit from Tip's Presentation? Attendees will benefit from
an individual-level focus on moving forward with clarity and power. Some of the
principles discussed will be applicable within your individual organizations, as
to you personally. Any group, is only as strong as its component parts (each individual
member, each team, each company).
We know you will benefit greatly by attending Tip's presentation so RSVP by January
