Awesome General Session Speakers
Opening General Session Speaker Dr. Randall Pinkett
He will share “The Three Essential Mindsets to Compete in the 21st Century” showing how these trends are having a tremendous impact on our nation’s education and development systems. These three trends are contributing to a new landscape that requires new ways of thinking â€“ or new mindsets â€“ to be competitive in the 21st century.
As an advocate of Career ClustersÂ® and a leader in Career Technical Education, what can you do to make sure that your classroom, your program, your institution or your state are preparing students to embrace these new â€˜mindsetsâ€™ and to be competitive in the 21st Century?
Dr. Pinkett will share how Career ClustersÂ® be used as an effective strategy to ensure student success in this ever-changing economy and society.
Closing General Session Speaker Mr. Rick Delano
Generational theorist Rick Delano will illustrate how to understand today’s youth generation in “Preparing Millennials for the Workplace” – our newest workers, teachers, voters, military recruits and parents. As Career Technical Education leaders, how are we preparing them to be the workforce we need?
How can we share the message of Career ClustersÂ® to these individuals in a purposeful way within our existing programmatic structures, to prepare them to succeed?
The oldest Millennial is now 31. We know them as our sons and daughters, perhaps as our grandchildren.
What you will learn about them as a generation will surprise, intrigue, inspire and inform you.
The conference kicks of at 1 p.m. June 10 and wraps up at Noon June 12. Pre sessions are offered afternoon of June 9 and morning of June 10.
