Katie Hilborn

Showing Up, Breaking Boundaries and Building Communities—Friday, January 11, 1-2:30 pm and 3-4:30 pm

Students will be able to grasp that becoming a leader, standing out, and transforming our world, begins with transforming oneself. Our external world is merely a reflection of our internal world. In this workshop, students will participate in several learning modalities (auditory, visual, and kinesthetic) to understand how these concepts work and how they apply to becoming future leaders.

Master Your Memory—Saturday, January 12, 8:30-10 am and 10:30-12 pm

If you can easily picture it, you can remember it. Troy will share with you the tools and techniques he used to teach himself how to learn and remember information on his quest to earning 6 advanced degrees, traveling to over 70 countries and holding elective office. He will show you how to take abstract concepts and make them tangible to make them easily understood. His techniques will ensure your grades will increase and knowledge is retained.
