Keynotes & Workshops 


From Raggedy to R.E.A.D.Y 

Success often comes from being prepared for the next opportunity. Being unprepared means not having a plan to achieve academic, personal, or professional success (aka Raggedy). Being R.E.A.D.Y. means gaining and leveraging your skills, network, and gifts to make the necessary changes to achieve desired outcomes. You can learn Dr. Justin Grimes's 5-step process for going from being unprepared to being R.E.A.D.Y. on your road to success.
