Title: Kankakee County Teen Conference.
Location: Olivet Nazarene University
Description: Teen Conference (Private Event)
Life has been hectic to say the least! To get out to the Kankakee County Teen Conference, I got up at 4:30am. Technically I could have slept till 5am, but for some reason my 2 year old thinks it’s fun to get up at 4:30am and play the ‘let’s wake daddy by repeatedly slapping his face in the dark’ game. Kids!
Thankfully, Larry was driving so I was able to sleep the entire 2.5 hour drive.
The conference went great! I kicked everything off with a keynote to the 900 8th and 9th graders who were actually, amazingly awake! After the keynote, the group broke up into a bunch of worskhops and I also did 2 of those. It was nice to have smaller groups to speak to as we could do Q&A and make it more interractive.
I really enjoyed meeting everyone and want to do a special shout out to Shelby and her mom, Karen, fellow ADDers! Shelby’s a writer, putting her wild, ADD imagination to good use. Send me a copy of your book when it’s published, ok?
A big thank you, to our sponsor, Linda! I’m glad that the frame building exercise doubled as laughter therapy for you guys – you did an excellent job by the way!
Last, but not least, I ran into my good friend Steve Troglio, who was one of the other workshop speakers at the conference. Steve and I have known each other for about a decade, our path crossing at various events. Steve has a phenomenal program for youth – if you’re looking for a great presenter for your next teen event, look Steve up. Tell him I sent you!. Check out his website: CLICK HERE!
After the last workshop, Larry and I packed everything up and headed right back home! Long day, but well worth it!
