On March 9, 2012, I am the closing inspirational speaker for the Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials Conference.
This event draws over 400 school business officials from across the state of pennsylvania and is held in Historic Hershey PA.
School business officials are involved in the Non- instructional aspects of education and supporting student acheivement. The audience is comprised of business or finance managers overseeing transportation, food services, facilities and more.
Last year the Pennsylvania govenor cut over a billion dollars from the education budget. The new budget was rolled out last week where they presented even more cuts.
This groups suffers from the typical stress of doing more with less resources. With cost reductions, they must find ways to stretch their dollar. This year Pennsylvania school support staff will suffer even more wage freezes and layoffs.
I am hired to deliver a funny motivational speech geared towards leadership to remind the audience to take themselves lightly through all the change and stress in the coming year.
The funny motivational speech, Follow Me I'm Right Behind You, reminds leadership how quickly leadership styles in our workforce have changed and how to keep up with a changing workforce.
School business officials have a tough job trying to balance multiple priorities and this event will renew and refresh their spirits.
