Keynote Address

Recent years have challenged us all as we have navigated unprecedented change and external forces beyond our control. In response to these times, this year's keynote address by psychologist, professor, and author, Daniel Tomasulo, PhD will explore the empowering tools of Learned Hopefulness. Filled with passion and grounded in the practice of Positive Psychology, Dr. Tomasulo is an expert speaker who will shift our perspective allowing us to break free from the hopelessness that may be weighing us down. Join us to find the inspiration we need to renew our motivation, lean on our strengths, and bring a sense of resiliency to our work and our lives.
