Gia Valenti – “The Magnificent Melvin & Moxie”: When twins Melvin and Moxie are approaching their 10th birthday, they are anticipating the gift that all of their friends have…their very own CELL PHONES! This is a story of hope for parents and children in the ever abundant digital world. Watch Mel and Mox discover how not conforming to cultural norms can be the new cool, quite rewarding and full of surprise!
As a speech pathologist, 25 year professional thespian, and sales executive, Gia knows the importance of strong communication skills. As a mother, Gia has seen firsthand the negative influence technology and social media can have on the real-life connections our children are making. She is committed to combatting the effects technology has on our youth. She is relentlessly passionate about ensuring that children as young as two years old through high school have access to resources in a classroom and home setting that will give them the skills they need to grow, learn, and lead as communicative adults.
Jeff Koziatek – “Blueprint for Value”: No matter our station in life, we can all struggle with feeling unworthy. Though we may claim every person has intrinsic value, we too often link our worth to our performance or external factors beyond our control. In this thought-provoking book, Jeff Koziatek, coach, speaker, and entertainer, shows you how to build your own PERSONAL WORTH ACCOUNT (PWA) so that no matter what happens, you can feel confident in who you are. Jeff explains how we can all ENGAGE in our lives more effectively, EQUIP ourselves for success, EMPOWER ourselves for action, and ENCOURAGE ourselves throughout every challenge we face.
Books will be available for purchase at event!
