Terry SummerlinPowerful Communication Connectors
Terry Sumerlin
Keynote Speaker

Through technology and electronic devices, we are more connected to the world than ever before. Yet, in the ways that matter we are alarmingly more disconnected. Why is that and how can we still connect with students, parents, administrators, and other education professionals?  In this humorous, insightful, entertaining presentation Terry Sumerlin gently kicks us on the shin and reminds us of things that perhaps we already knew but have forgotten or neglected.  Through masterful storytelling he reminds us of the importance of communicating credibility, people focus, respect and clarity. He provides lots of practical takeaway that can be immediately applied.
