Keynote Testimonial:


Wow! Bringing Mark Perna in to speak to MCC faculty and administrators was one of the best decisions we ever made. His powerful keynote address during our fall opening week was, and continues to be, instrumental in helping the College sharpen its focus on enrollment, engagement, and retention. Mark is a dynamic and entertaining speaker, but more importantly, his presentation was one of real substance. He laid out specific, step-by-step strategies for getting students in the door, keeping them interested, and helping them cross the finish line. Our audience was so impressed that they gave Mark an enthusiastic standing ovation at the conclusion of his presentation. He truly made a lasting impact here! His message prompted everyone to get fired up about reaching students, and his experience-driven guidance has laid the foundation for us to stay on message as an organization.”
