Learning to Fly: Lessons from the Air

Embracing Change, Managing Risk and Fear

In today's ever changing world, businesses and individuals are faced with a constant stream of information, choices and change. The traditional pathways to success are also changing, as are perceptions of risk, sustainability and achievement. Steph speaks on the lessons she's learned in the mountains and in the air as a professional climber and wingsuit pilot, and in choosing a highly nontraditional career path. Managing change, embracing failure, understanding risk and fear, cultivating adaptability, preparing for opportunity. Audiences are encouraged to view their own challenges through a new lens, recognizing the power of adversity and evolution, and the value of crafting an uncommon life. – Steph Davis

Legislative Panel Discussion at UCET 2017

Written by Charice Carroll on . Posted in #UCET17, #ucet4success, 2017 Conference, Advocacy

Can you feel the excitement building? One week from today is the big day, UCET 2017 Conference! I know I am getting excited to participate, renew friendships, learn and share with fellow educators over two very full days. I have been attending UCET conferences for more years than I care to admit and it just keeps getting better! Every year seems to out-do the last with innovative sessions, keynotes, and activities – and 2017 is no exception! 

We are excited to announce the addition of a legislative panel discussion to be held during the final session on Friday. This panel of special guest speakers will include participants from the Governor's Office of Education, the Utah State Board of Education, and the Utah Legislature. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from these officials about the 2017 Legislative Session, plans for the future of Utah education, and other great information. Mark your schedule for Friday the 17th, 2:15-3:15 in the Union Ballroom. I invite you to join hosts Derek Larson and myself, Charice Carroll, for this amazing chance to get up close to our representatives and policy makers. Look for it in the NEW conference schedule at https://event.crowdcompass.com/ucet17 and put this session in your backpack!

Can't wait to see you at UCET 2017!
