“We are excited to have Dr. Kanoy join us once again to discuss emotional intelligence and leadership during this important occasion,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “With her vast knowledge of psychology, emotional intelligence and leadership, and her strong ties to William Peace University, she is sure to be a dynamic keynote speaker for Omicron Delta Kappa members.”
“I am delighted to be asked to present the keynote address on leadership and emotional intelligence,” said Kanoy. “I look forward to celebrating Triangle-area Omicron Delta Kappa members and their leadership as they mark this important occasion in the society’s history.”
