Below is the keynote deck I presented during the opening address at the 40th anniversary of CEANY in Saratoga Springs on November 7th 2012. There was a great crowd of continued education professionals who – in a series of seminars and workshops – provided great insights aligned with the conference’s theme: Treasuring the Past, Mapping the Future.
Here are the details on the topic I covered. I also uploaded the deck on SlideShare.
