Presentation: Ky3C – College & Career Success Collaboration for All Kentuckians
The Ky3C Coalition is a voluntary statewide network of more than 30 agencies, institutions, and organizations engaged in outreach to help Kentucky students and families prepare for and succeed in college and a career.
The Kentucky College & Career Connection (Ky3C) was formed in February 2015 in an effort to align, enhance, and expand college and career outreach efforts statewide. Since then, Ky3C has undertaken several collaborative, cross-sector projects focused on reaching constituents from every segment of the education pipeline, including the development of a statewide inventory of college and career outreach programs for youth and adults.
This summer, the coalition will launch “KnowHow2Pay,” a statewide media campaign developed completely by students to raise awareness of the different ways to make going to college more affordable. Come hear more about the Ky3C and this new campaign!

Presentation: "Great Projects By Choice"
Some companies start from a position of vulnerability within unstable, out-of-control environments to rise to become great companies with spectacular performance. According to Jim Collins, the author of Great by Choice, companies that thrive in chaos are characterized by “Fanatic Discipline, Productive Paranoia, and Empirical Creativity.” This presentation will apply these principles to project management and provide project managers with tools to help them lead successfully in a chaotic environment.
