amma marfoWATERVILLE, MAINE, October 2017 — Registration is now open for Thomas College’s fifth annual Leadership Conference on November 4, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Thomas College in Waterville. This event is open to area college students and high school seniors.

National speaker and author Amma Marfo is the keynote speaker. Marfo is a thoughtful yet incurable silly independent higher education professional, writer, and editor based in Boston, MA. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Communications Studies from the University of Rhode Island, and a Master of Education from the University of South Florida.

Marfo’s keynotes, workshops and trainings don’t look like other events of their kind. Students and professionals are challenged to reflect on their ideas through writing and drawing, to leave their seats to interact with concepts and one another, and to laugh as much as they learn. All this can take place as she works with participants on topics like temperament and group dynamics, building a culture of creativity, instilling humor in your organization, values-based leadership and activism, and much more.

Participants will have a chance to learn what it means to be a leader, participate in breakout sessions, a raffle, and receive a conference gift. Registration can be completed online at .

For more information about the event, please contact Dean of Students Hannah Gladstone at [email protected] or 207-859-1243.
