Featured Speaker

Dr. Frances Lucas

Dr. Frances Lucas is nationally known for her humorous keynote speeches and interactive, powerful workshops. As an Advanced Associate with Emergenetics International, she will be leading us on a three-day journey to better understand how we prefer to think and behave, how to build strong teams, and how lead change.

Dr. Lucas is a woman of firsts. She was named President of Millsaps College in January 2000, becoming the first female college president in Mississippi history. Prior to that post, Dr. Lucas served Emory University as Senior Vice-President for Campus Life, becoming the first woman to hold a vice-presidential role in that university’s 160-year history. At age 29, she was the youngest Vice-President for Student Affairs in the country and the first female Vice-President at Baldwin-Wallace College in Ohio. Dr. Lucas also served as a faculty member in Human Capital Development, Education, and Communications.

Without self-aware faculty and staff, high-performing teams and a positive culture, your nursing program will experience challenges in communication, collaboration, productivity and employee retention. Through the Meeting of the Minds, leaders are empowered to use their strengths to achieve their potential and organizations are given the tools to maximize performance and create positive cultures.
