Student Leadership Conference

ATTEN: Date changed due to weather concerns

Creating Waves and Changing Tides

Another Exceptional Leadership Experience with The Ripples Guy!


Wells Conference Center

Registration $10-The University of Maine and $15.00 for students not registered at the Orono Campus.  Registrations are final, there are no reimbursements for cancellations.

Ask anyone who attended last year’s leadership conference about the speaker, and they’ll tell you:  The Ripples Guy ROCKS!  We’ve asked him to come back with an entirely fresh set of tips, techniques and activities and he quickly responded:  I’M IN!

This day is guaranteed to improve both your EFFECTIVENESS and your ENJOYMENT of work, school, & life.

We’re calling it an EXPERIENCE because it will be equal parts leadership conference, networking/chat time, and standup/storytelling performance.  Paul is in, we are in…the question is:  ARE YOU IN?!

Speaker bio:
Paul Wesselmann is known as The Ripples Guy to the 30,000 current and former students who crave the upbeat splashes of inspiration he unleashes via email, Facebook, Pinterest & Twitter.  Paul has degrees in psychology and higher education, and his talks include a unique combination of practical strategies and authentic inspiration that leaves participants fired up AND with specific ideas they can immediately implement.  Plus, he’s hilarious!

Registration costs:  University of Maine Orono attendees $10.00, all other attendees $15.00.  All registrations are final, there are no reimbursements.



 Due to the date change, registration will reopen on Monday, February 2, at noon.  Current registration will be honored you do not have to re-register for this conference.
