Tuesday, April 18 Matt Paxton

This keynote will take audience members through an interactive journey to explore hoarding. Matt Paxton will use his unique mix of humor and experience to truly get into the mindset of a hoarder.  You'll learn who hoards and why this dilemma is not going away.  He'll cover why a hoarder behaves a certain way and why they can't just throw it all out.  You'll begin to understand the emotional ties to specific items and how the hoarder places the item can help you understand their grief. Focusing on demographics and personal experience, we’ll learn why hoarding in affordable housing is increasing.

Wednesday, April 19 Patty Dobrolowski

Imagination Changes Everything
The odds of you making a change in your life are against you 9:1.

In this powerful, dynamic talk, Patti Dobrowolski will show you how you, your team, and your organization can make lasting change. Using the latest neuroscience research, she’ll show you how to marry a visual with the most innate tool you have: your imagination. Participants will be inspired to draw a picture of their desired new reality, and will learn how to leverage their imagination to bring more of what they want into their work and their lives.
