Keynote Speaker 

The Region VIII Conference Planning Team is excited to announce the keynote speaker for the 2016 Regional Conference at the University of Massachusetts Lowell: Arel Moodie.


Keynote Topic: The Art of Likability

As a leader on your campus, you are constantly crossing paths with different types of people from all walks of life. We all would love to engage and positively impact as many people as possible, why else would we be doing the work we are doing? Everything we want to achieve boils down to the quality of the relationships we have. And likability is the precursor to all great relationships and the thread that keeps them strong. We help people we like. We invest in people we like. We follow leaders we like. We attend events from people we like. You don't have to be born with a likability gene, it is absolutely a learnable skill. This presentation will show you how to build deep connections at this conference and at your campus with anyone by leveraging likability to be empowered to take consistent relationship building action.
