This year’s conference will feature Candy Whirley, an energetic and interactive public speaker who will share her wealth of knowledge on the importance of emotional intelligence. By highlighting the four personality styles, Candy’s keynote address will help attendees understand their own emotions, how to manage them, how to recognize emotions in others, how to choose their emotions, and the importance of handling their emotions in relationships.
