Social Services Keynote Speaker

I was extremely thrilled to attend a conference for the state of Indiana this month! 

I've done a lot of work with at-risk youth, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Social Services over the years and it's very rewarding to be able to share my observations as the Keynote Speaker at a conference in Indiana. In attendance were case workers, lawyers, social workers, potential adoptive parents, board members from different groups and various youth organizations. As it turned out, a police officer (RIGHT in photo below) who had previously seen some material of mine suggested to the board to have me come out a the presenter. He made it to the program and we had a fun magic session afterwards. He seemed thrilled and was a blast to entertain and brainstorm with.

After setting up audio/visual equipment the first day, I had an afternoon to explore Indianapolis which was getting in high gear for the racing that weekend! I took a tour of the famous Children'd Museum where I came across a different type of motivation and education.
