Instructional Leadership Summit 

 

Keynote - Sean Covel - "The Word that Shapes our World"

 

So here’s the thing; your mind is a computer, pure and simple.  And a computer has only one function: to answer questions.  
The questions you ask your mind result in answers that shape the way you see the world and how you interact in it.  When you consider what questions others are asking themselves, you unlock the key to creating deep connections, find opportunities to collaborate on building great things, and gain a powerful tool to re-direct the lives of students and community members who are all but defeated in many aspects of their lives. 
The most powerful questions you can ask yourself rely on one single word. It is a word that, more than any other, has shaped the entire modern world.  And it is a word you already use each and every day.
In a 1-hour presentation, Sean Covel combines humorous stories of growing up in small-town America, with fantastic tales of true-life adventures in the movie business. Through these stories he shares a theme that has connected them all, an idea that connects us all, and a concept that lets us shape our world for the better.

Keynote - Garret Garrels - "Finding the Rhythm" 

 

Life is a lot like music. And for Garret that music is from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. In this humorous presentation, Garret will share his hilarious failures in life: from his journey as an accident-prone athlete, a nearly bankrupt business owner, and an artistically-challenged artist. Through storytelling, boxing demonstrations, and what can only be called a “rap” you will learn some of the many lessons that music can teach us about life.
