    Hi

    I provide career information to prepare senior students to be optimistic about careers after school.

    I would love to hear the thoughts and ideas from the conference. I know Bootsy and think he is an amazing example of the entreprenaissance that is going on.

    I am working so can’t make it to the confrence so I wonder if you are going to put up transcripts or videos of the speakers. I am particularly interested in concerns that participants express which I can focus on as I give information and support to senior students.

    Thanks

    Bev
