ADMAN's 2017 Annual Conference

Finding Joy Amid Change

March 1, 2017, 7:30am - 4:30pm
Conference Center, UC Davis

Change is inevitable. It surrounds us. It comes in many forms. It comes from things out of our control, such as our environment and decisions made by the people around us. We at ADMAN want to promote and encourage the positive impacts change can create including opportunities change can provide. During this year’s ADMAN Conference, we want to provide attendees with insight and understanding on what they can do to make change better. Featured keynote speaker Britt Andreatta, author, consultant and leadership coach, will speak on the neuroscience of change. Dr. Andreatta is recognized for creating experiences that engage, educate, and entertain.
