    We are very happy to announce that Dethra U. Giles, Chief Bridge Architect at ExecuPrep will deliver the opening keynote address at this year's conference.

    • Everyone wants to be a superhero but most people spend their entire life in search of their superpower. Meet Dethra U. Giles, Chief Bridge Architect at ExecuPrep. Dethra’s superpower is helping her clients build and cross their bridge from “I want to be” to “I am” and to help them quickly find their superpower. People do not exist to be mediocre, Dethra believes you were placed here to be great and it is the quest for greatness that Dethra guides her clients through. She is an alumna of KSU, twice, and continues to work with students as an Adjunct Faculty member at Mercer University.
