Program: LHRIC - Technology Leadership Institute (TLI)

Dates: 3/22/2019

This event is a celebration of excellence in the Region. The prestigious TELL award is bestowed upon Teachers and Leaders nominated by their colleagues and peers as demonstrating innovation, best practices, and having implemented systemic change in teaching and learning. Join us for this celebration and find out what the strategies are behind these success stories. New this year are the student poster sessions where students will demonstrate how the work of these educators has impacted their learning experience. The Keynote speaker for this year's event is Jen Waldman. Jen helps people hone in on their unique gifts, empowering them to take action with authenticity and heart. Using her background in the arts, she encourages creative thinking and imagination, so that others can cultivate new ideas and share them with the world. Jen and Simon Sinek united several years ago when Simon became aware that Jen was using the Golden Circle to inspire artists to make a greater impact with their work. The two recognized that by combining their efforts they could help people across many different industries discover their WHY and bring it to life. Jen now travels the world offering Why-inspired keynotes and workshops on leadership, communication, and presentation skills so that individuals and organizations can have more impact with their ideas. In addition to her work with Start With Why, Jen is the Founder and Executive Director of Jen Waldman Studio, New York City's premiere training studio for Broadway actors. She has worked with over a thousand artists to develop and nurture their creative voice and technique. Jen is particularly inspired by and dedicated to mentoring young people. She recently served a 5 year term as the Theatre Chair for the National Young Arts Foundation and is a professor at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.
