On September 9, I will be the humorous guest speaker for the San Diego County Office of Education All Staff Workshop. This highly anticipated event will draw over 1,000 professionals who work for the office of education.
The audience members provide teacher support staff and administrator training and professional development in every aspect of K-12 education. Everyone in the audience (from education administrators, teachers, custodians, school superintendent, payroll, HR, Technology support and more) support educational leadership and administer mandated services.
The education industry has weathered severe budget cuts as it strives to prepare students to successfully compete in a global workplace. While faced with significant challenges, educators make a difference for all students.
My role as the humorous guest speaker is to ramp up the office of education for the new school year, energize the audience and make them feel good about who they are and what they do.
To prepare to be a speaker for the office of education I have interviewed 6 people, had three conference calls, reviewed job titles and descriptions, websites, watched Ted TV motivational educational speaker Salmon Khan video on education reform and more. I have received a very rapid and positive response from all the planning committee members to get me any information I need. They are a delight! I truly cannot wait to speak for this keen and committed group of office of education staff.
What is unique and especially exciting about this event is that it will be held in the Jenny Craig Pavillion where all 1000+ Office of Education employees will meet for the first time in one place (usually the event is videocast to several locations).
The event is sponsored by VEBA, the office of educations employee assistance program, who has some incredibly comprehensive healthcare programs including genetic testing, sleep apnea, a weight loss challenge and more.
