TOPIC: Life Long Learning for Lifetime Success -

In our ever-changing world we need to constantly upgrade our skill sets to satisfy the needs of the marketplace. We find that our learning comes from both formal education and the practical “lessons learned” we develop from life’s experiences. This presentation will discuss these elements as part of an examination of learning and the role it plays in the broader scope of life---

  1. Theory v. Practice;
  2. Old v. New;
  3. Risk v. Reward;
  4. Standard v. Creativity;
  5. Satisfaction v. Yearning.

The speaker will share entertaining experiences from his personal and work lives that promise to share lessons learned.
