General Session Speakers
Kevin D. Jones
At Connect, you will:
Solve top IT issues facing higher education today.
Engage in active networking, discussion, and knowledge building through facilitated discussion sessions. Be challenged in cohort-like learning tracks—beginning each day as a complete group, breaking off into smaller content groups, and coming back together to reflect, recap, and reconnect.
Network across traditional roles.
Immerse yourself in highly-participatory, facilitated sessions and affinity activities to maximize peer discussions and networking before, during, and after the event.
Grow yourself and the profession.
Invest in your own personal career development by participating in the Elevate Your Game/Career Development learning track as well as one:one and small group experiences and activities. Participate in specific sessions of interest or, if you are new to management or an aspiring manager, register for the event and select the New IT Managers option.
