Guest Speaker - "Overcoming Mental Barriers" by Gerry Baird

  • Apr 3, 2014 · 6:30 PM

This is a FREE event with a wonderful guest speaker, Gerry Baird, who will talk to us about overcoming mental barriers, followed by some yummy treats.

Whenever we attempt to learn something new, such as computer programming, our motivations and perceptions combine with the challenges we encounter to create a recipe for failure or success. This presentation will examine psychological, social and physical barriers to learning and discuss techniques to identify and overcome them.

Gerry Baird has been working in the IT industry for 20 years in support, quality assurance, software development and management roles. He is currently a business analyst at Nu Skin Enterprises. He has taught programming courses in collegiate and corporate settings and teaches piano and guitar lessons in his spare time. He has a bachelor’s degree in Information Systems from the University of Phoenix and an MBA from Utah State University.

75 West Center
Provo, UT 84601
Please enter the building through the main north doors located at 100 West Center Street.

A big thank you to our host for this event - NuSkin.

Yummy treats for this class will be provided by one of our amazing sponsors, Centershift/Yardi Systems
