    Keynote Session:  OUT THERE, Tania Luna

    Tania Luna is the CEO of Surprise Industries, who gives inspiring speeches on her personal story as well as the importance of reaching out to people. Tania, a self-proclaimed “surprisologist," thinks deeply about how to delight, and how to help individuals and teams thrive in uncertain circumstances and develop the bonds needed to get through them. She will deliver a keynote on December 5 that will:

    • Help Extension faculty create meaningful impact and interactions on those they serve across the state of Oregon, utilizing creating thinking and stories to forge connections with their clients/marketplace and within their own workforce.
    • Help individuals and teams develop leadership skills and thrive in uncertain circumstances.
    • Help Extension faculty lead deep and joyful lives.

    Please make an effort to attend the 2017 Extension Annual Conference, and the many special events that bring us together to network, learn and celebrate the successes and support of our colleagues and friends.  We've made a sincere effort to include sessions that are of interest to a broad cross-section of Extension faculty and staff.  We hope you can find the time to come together and join us!
