    We are so excited to meet you and cannot wait to learn and share knowledge together!

The first half of the event will focus on cyberspace, maintaining your online image, and being bold and responsible. After this we will focus on how our actions and communication tools can help us succeed in making a bold statement every day.

The second half of our day will focus on real life etiquette and communication by defining who we are, evaluating day-to-day interactions and body language, and discussing how to keep true to ourselves.

We look forward to discussing takeaways and growing individually together.
