Courage is Found Everywhere

With barely three months until the start of the 2011 ACO conference, your conference team is hard at work preparing for an unforgettable conference experience.

There are 23 presentations this year including our Key Note speaker Gregg Krech, Executive Director of the non-profit ToDo Institute.

We are also excited to announce our Saturday night speaker Maya Echegaray, who comes to us from Peru. Ms. Echegaray will share with us her moving and inspiring story, Passion to Action. She relates how coaches in her country have pulled together as visionaries, pioneers and activists forging ahead on behalf of South American adults and students with ADHD. This will be a festive evening!

So Much to Choose From

For the 2011 conference, we have three preconference sessions—one shorter preconference on Friday morning for our early conference-attendees. Jay Carter will present Challenges and Success in the Workplace. We will also have two afternoon pre-conference choices, one featuring Linda Roggli, PCC and her Full Presence Communication, and the other features Chuck Blocher and Dan Pruitt, Coaching Unique Brain Styles. It will be a challenge to choose between these two extraordinary programs.

As always we have included lots of time for networking, sharing ideas and just being together. This is the part most conference-goers love the most—being together in one place, face-to-face. We have lots to talk about. Lots to learn and plenty to take back home to all the corners of the world from which we come. The ACO strives to be an international organization and this year we are certainly proving it to be so!
