Session 1 


Translating Veteran Attributes to any Organization


In this session, Ken will identify veteran employee attributes that add value to any organization. We will explore project management and leadership best practices found in the armed forces which can be leveraged in civilian organizations.  In addition, Ken will provide specific examples of where industry can employ the before mentioned best practices into their own organizations.

Session 2


Michigan Veteran Homes… Who, What, Why and Where? 


Michigan Veteran Homes… Who, What, Why and Where?  As a West Michigander for 25 years and spending 23 years working at the Home in Grand Rapids, I still meet on average 3 people a week who have no idea what I am talking about when I say I work for the Michigan Veteran Homes. I plan to equip you with knowledge of the best kept secret in West Michigan, called the Michigan Veteran Homes at Grand Rapids. I will provide you with an overview of who we are, who we serve, the benefits that veterans and their dependents have earn and how you could help support the mission in caring for our nation’s heroes living in at our Grand Rapids home.
