Institute Day 2017 is being shifted to a conference style format with 3 locations. This year’s 3 host locations are Geneva High School, Hampshire High School and West Aurora High School. Each location will begin with a keynote speaker, then move to 1 hour, 2 hour or all day sessions. You will be registering for the location of your choice, not individual sessions. You will be at 1 location all day and can choose from the offerings at that site only. Sessions are scheduled on a variety of topics. The breakout session catalog will be available for viewing Friday, January 13. As always, registration will open on February 1, 2017.

Hailing from a small town outside Chicago, Tim has brought to bear all his experiences from his years as an award-winning educator, his training at Second City and decades in stand-up comedy, and has synthesized his calling as a Humorous Motivational Speaker and Corporate Entertainer. Tim has spent a decade as a professor of communications and speech, worked with many well known comics, and is now a Humorous Motivational Speaker and Team Builder.
