My Power of Appreciation presentation will help them build on those things that have gotten them through this far, and help them leverage those lessons for motivating themselves and those around them onto greater and greater success this year.”

Said Gerry Egan, Executive Director of NEFA, “Our Conference Planning Committee, led by Lynne Wicker, of RTR Services, has put together an outstanding program for our upcoming Summit.  We’re excited to have a speaker of Mike Robbins’ experience and passion and have the perfect spot for him at our Saturday luncheon.  Attendees will have been networking with each other, learning and viewing exhibits since Thursday and Mike’s message will help them get the most out of all they’ve experienced.  With over six weeks still to go, we’ve already registered many more people than we had in total at this event last year, so we’re really expecting a good turnout and an exciting event.”
