Following the Moss Adams Tax Seminar, SOREDI’s Southern Oregon Business Conference 2018 will begin, with speakers offering insights into personal, workplace and economic RESILIENCY.  Author Randy Harrington, Ph.D., and author of the new book, “Slammed: Succeeding in a World of Too Busy,” will help us grapple with the constantly “slammed” nature of modern work-life balance. Do you feel like you are always rushing from one activity to the next, trying to do well at work, while attempting to maintain some semblance of a healthy personal and family life? You’re not the only one. Harrington will help us reframe and find the resilience to thrive in a slammed environment. The first 50 guests to register for the conference online will receive a free copy of the book!

We will also hear from Tim Duy, Ph.D., Economist, who will offer a round up of 2017 and projections for 2018, in regard to the economic resilience of Southern Oregon. Duy is a Professor of Practice and Senior Director of the Oregon Economic Forum, Department of Economics for the University of Oregon. SOBC guests always appreciate Duy’s insights into the patterns we’ve seen in the previous year and a forecast of what is to come. Fans of Duy enjoy his blog, “Tim Duy’s Fed Watch” at

Dr. Todd Bloomquist, Director of School Improvement for the Grants Pass School District, will be sharing a landmark population study called the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACES). This study revealed a relationship between adverse or traumatic experiences in childhood and health and social problems in adulthood. These traumas affect brain development in ways that have direct effects on school and workplace performance, work attendance, productivity and work-related injuries. Dr. Bloomquist will cover key aspects of the ACE study and the impact on communities, but perhaps more importantly, the way that awareness and resiliency have been proven to change the brain, change the way individuals respond to adversity and change negative experiences into positive outcomes for individuals and groups.
