Breakout Speaker: Anna Stumpf

Session Title: Understanding Your Value

 This session will be an interactive look at how best to understand your value, how to engage with others by leveraging that value and ways to become more engaged in your work and personal life as a result. Despite being in a digital world with high connectivity, employee engagement is down and mental health issues are up, Dr. Anna Stumpf finds those two issues to be directly related to how we view and present ourselves. This session will utilize a personality profile example: https://clarityonfire.com/take-the-quiz/tips on meaningful engagement with others that could inspire you, and a to do list for getting more engaged after this conference. 


 Dr. Anna Stumpf is a Professor of Sport, Social Media and Brand Marketing at the graduate and undergraduate level for Anderson University. After a decade long management career with Wal-Mart, she pursued a Master of Arts in Teaching and began an eight year career as a high school business teacher. Though teaching high school was rewarding, Dr. Stumpf felt that she had more business experience to offer and earned an MBA which allowed her to transition into the collegiate classroom. Dr. Stumpf’s approach to any classroom is simple: “I pride myself on never having a student in any seat in any classroom ever wonder ‘when will I ever use this?’ It is my passion to answer that question before they think of it”. Her current passion is bridging the gap between our connected world where we are losing connectivity. Not only with one another through the advantages of networking. Today, it seems more people were also losing touch with their own value propositions and Dr. Stumpf has a passion for speaking into that.
