 Friday Evening Keynote and Reception

 Museum Director and reality TV star Mark Hall-Patton was such a hit last year with his keynote that I have asked him to return with an Encore Keynote at the Friday evening reception. His topic “Aren’t You That Guy? Continuing Adventures in the Public Eye.” His illustrated talk provides inside information on celebrity and how to control its impact on one’s life, both personally and professionally.

Saturday Lunch Presentation.

UNLV’s Amy Green’s presentation “We’ll Make Diamonds from Their Ashes: Take

 

Them into Battle with Us:” Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Metal Gear Solid V”

 

sheds light on video games and cultural impact.
