 Student Leadership Conference

 Student Leadership ConferenceRSVP on The Nest Before March 15th!

This year we are pleased to have author, Pierre Quinn join us as our keynote speaker.  His book, Leading While Green: How Emerging Leaders Can Ripen into Effective Leaders has been used in college classrooms, nonprofit settings, conferences, and churches to help emerging leaders identify their strengths and increase effectiveness in their circles of influence. Prior to his focus as a leadership speaker, he worked in nonprofit communications and taught business communication and leadership courses on the collegiate level for nearly a decade.

Pierre holds both a Master of Arts in Communication and a Master of Divinity from Andrews University. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Organizational Leadership. He admits that his roles as a husband and father are both his greatest joy and greatest leadership challenges.
