Making an Impact

Presented by Dr. Rick Rigsby
Tuesday, June 4 | 11:30AM – 12:45PM
We live an era of astonishing technology, instant information and rampant social networking. Despite the epidemic advances that ushered in a new millennium, cultural critics argue that society has never been more shallow in communication and more superficial in appearance. In fact, Dr. Rick Rigsby argues that for many organizations, appearance—or what he refers to as impression—has become the new corporate wardrobe. We invite you to rediscover what is really important and meaningful—not only in your professional career but in your personal life as well. Join Dr. Rigsby as he shares the wisdom of past generations—wisdom that will inspire, motivate, and empower you to make an impact rather than an impression! READ MORE

Taking Security to the Next Level – New Threats, New Strategies

As threats increase in the workplace and schools, we must develop and implement better strategies that help reduce violent crimes against employees, students, visitors and customers. It’s more than just preventing burglaries using traditional security equipment. Developing a thoughtful strategy and using enhanced security policies and procedures will help decrease the threat of violence in businesses, schools and government facilities. In this session, experienced Secret Service agents will provide real-world solutions and common-sense safeguards that take security to the next level. The college-bound son or daughter of a first responder will be awarded ESA’s Youth Scholarship and the Police Dispatch Quality Award recipient will be named.
