Featuring Keynote Speaker- Wendy Shepherd

Wendy is a motivational speaker out of the Detroit, Michigan area. She has conducted seminars and trainings for over 20 years, specializing in upbeat & positive trainings in stress management, balancing work & family, and parent education.

Wendy believes that getting through life's traumas and dramas can be difficult. Americans are stressed out, feel they have little control over their time, and experience the pressures of parenting without the support their parents had. Juggling work and family becomes an overwhelming chore.  By presenting realistic and easy tips and techniques, Wendy is able to help participants view their challenges in more creative and positive terms.
 

Morning Keynote Session:
Optimistic: Even in the Face of Reality:
 
 
Raising children seems to be challenging a task than ever, and it's easy to get discouraged. HOWEVER...you don't have to let a sometimes harsh reality drag you down! Discover strategies for focusing on the positive and explore approaches for being realistically optimistic both at work and at home.
  
 
Afternoon Keynote Session:
Parenting: Your Own Personal Sitcom

Some of our favorite sitcoms have been about families. Maybe it's time to take a more humorous look at your own family!Even in the most difficult situations, a little bit of laughter will help you get through the day. Laughter helps you deal with stress, keeps you healthy, and makes life easier. Don't touch that dial...Just tune in and enjoy the fun!
