Mura, Beene and Reipen Join Sir Ken Robinson, Bringing Effectiveness, Awareness and Inspiration to One Venue
ATLANTA (May 7, 2013) — Emerald Data Solutions™, Inc., developer of BoardDocs® paperless meeting solutions and the eGovernance pioneer, today announced the first round of confirmed speakers for eGovLIVE! 2013, the annual conference of the eGovernance community, to be held Sept. 4 - 6 at the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, UT.
At eGovLIVE! representatives from governing bodies across the country will gather for educational sessions packed with thought leadership, best practices and real-world applications of eGovernance. Featured speaker Sir Ken Robinson, recently called "among the world's elite thinkers on creativity and innovation”, will challenge attendees to re-evaluate outdated assumptions about intelligence and creativity — and unleash the real potential of people and organizations.
On Thursday, Sept. 5 eGovLIVE! welcomes Agnes Mura, MA, a globally experienced Master Certified Coach to senior executives, boards, business owners and service professionals. Mura offers conference attendees a provocative but field-tested framework for distinguishing problems (to be solved) from paradoxes (to be managed). She has over 15 years of expertise in coaching leaders through high-stakes challenges of all types, including executing performance leaps, role expansion and how to successfully shift the culture of a team, a function or a board.
With every national and international crisis that occurs in schools, administrators are reminded to prioritize security. Also on Thursday, security industry leader Paul Benne, Vice President, TSG Solutions, Inc. will teach administrators how to increase school security by addressing areas that can be improved with little to no cost and prioritizing security spending that will have sustainable results. Benne’s expertise has been employed to secure a wide range of projects such as large entertainment venues, military facilities and corporate environments. His logical approach provides an easy to understand approach to potentially complex security issues.
On Friday, Sept. 6 Insa Riepen, Executive Director, Recycle Utah will share practical and simple methods for reducing your organization’s environmental impact. Riepen has developed education and outreach programs for a municipal waste authority in Southeastern Michigan and taught workshops on a variety of topics from waste reduction, to composting and using native plant material to prevent run off into the Rouge River, MI. At Recycle Utah, she has led the organization in growth of services to residents and businesses since 1999.
These presenters, among many others, will assemble with representatives from boards who attend the eGovLIVE! Conference each year. eGovLIVE! 2013 continues the tradition of providing thought-provoking speakers, tremendous networking and community opportunities, and a diverse slate of educational tracks.
