Keynote Speaker 
TJ Warren 

I finally understand why my mom has encouraged me all these years to "remember who you are."  Do you?

TJ Warren is an Assistant Director in the Office of Career Services at the University of Northern Iowa (UNI).  In his position, TJ serves as the liaison to UNI's College of Social and Behavioral Sciences which consists of 2,500+ students majoring and minoring in 23 areas of study and eight graduate programs.  He regularly offers career exploration, career management, and job searching assistance in a variety of ways throughout the college.  In addition to his work at UNI, TJ coaches, speaks, writes, and facilitates workshops.  His main areas of interest are helping people find their purpose, as well as assisting organizations and teams with working productively with one another towards a common mission.  TJ is a certified Life Coach and is certified to administer several self-discovery instruments to students and clients (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, CliftonStrengths, Strong Interest Inventory, and MCORE).  When he's not working, he enjoys drawing, spending time with his family, playing board games with his friends, and catching the latest superhero movie.
