On April 4, 2014. West Seneca Schools and The National Academy Foundation teamed up to host a conference for highly motivated high school juniors and seniors, titled “Marketing Me.”
The conference stressed the importance of learning to market oneself in order to stand out from the pack.
Our founder, Evan Giokas, was asked to be a keynote speaker at this event. Evan’s speech titled, “Action Modes of the Brain”, taught students that there are multiple areas of the brain that need to be utilized in order to see and achieve success.
Evan stressed the importance of learning these areas of the brain before heading to college, in order to have a clear understanding of what motivates each student and how understanding their personal conative abilities is the first step towards true success. He also touched on why particular classes work for some students while others simply don’t click and stressed the importance of realizing that bad grades are not indicative of how smart a student is.
Please watch the attached video below which recaps the tremendous event hosted at Kloc’s Grove in West Seneca, NY.
The College Confidence Coach and Evan Giokas are very proud to work with such an outstanding group of motivators and students and we all look forward to continuing to work together in the future.
