The UMBC Staff Development Committee and the Human Resources Workplace Learning and Wellness Unit cordially invite you to attend this year’s Professional Development Day on April 12th in the Fine Arts Recital Hall.
In our morning communication workshop with Emmy award-winning TEDx Speaker Coach, Jan Fox, on Keys to Bold Speaking and Communication, you will learn quick communication cures and subtle tweaks to enhance your influence regardless of your role. In the afternoon, we will be featuring our very own UMBC faculty and staff in a Retriever Talks, TEDx-style event (get a preview here) with 3 tracts highlighting several UMBC core values: inclusive excellence, community, and innovation. Come support your colleagues and hear ideas and stories that will foster learning, widen perspectives and inspire action. You will walk away with practical ways you can make a positive impact both in your job and in your community
The program is open to all faculty and staff and we would love your help in getting the word out to colleagues in your department. Register online by April 6th for the morning Keys to Bold Speaking and Communication workshop and the afternoon Retriever Talks event. Those participants who register for both sessions will receive a lunch coupon to True Grit’s.
