My dad is. Yep, Dr. Stephen A. Thomas is the originator. In case you didn't know, my dad is my hero and he gave me the green light to share his theory with the rest of the world. With that stated, I do have experience in event planning. Amongst those: the University of West Georgia Employer Night 2011. An event I assisted in coordinating, promoting and emceed. Attendance reached a high that had not been seen in recent years and both faculty and staff walked away impressed…
