Keynote Speakers:

 Julie Lenzer
 AVP, Innovation & Economic Development and Co-Director, UM Ventures, University of Maryland College Park

 Facilitator, Propel Thyself!
Facilitators are experts at making the process smooth and easy for others, but how can those skills be applied to    yourself both personally and professionally? Julie Lenzer is a “serial entrepreneur” who was appointed by the Obama Administration to rebuild the Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship. In this interactive session, she will share how the lessons she’s learned facilitating diverse groups from CEOs to high-level White House staff apply to anyone looking to move their business, or their life, forward with ease.
