The Department of Communication Senior Showcase will be held on Thursday, November 21 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the BYU-Idaho Center. The Showcase will be on the main floor through the north hall of the BYU-Idaho Center. Seniors will display their projects and talents for the public’s enjoyment. Come and be inspired as you see how these seniors have worked to go above and beyond.
A special keynote address will be held before the showcase at 11:30 a.m. in the MC Little Theatre, and all students are invited to attend. Shelly Yorgesen is a power-connector, and believes your next success is probably hiding in the next person you meet. Her first business was actually selling dirty Idaho potatoes out of the back of her minivan, on the streets of Idaho Falls! Yes! Selling ice to Eskimos!...and now 10 years later, having led live executive networking events for nearly a decade, she took her expertise of connecting high-level executives & business owners in to the online space. She created a virtual networking experience for women in business called The Veranda Virtual Network. Partnering with one of her Veranda members from Australia, Shelly recently opened ENE - Executive Networking Events, rented a Castle in Ireland and hosted an Executive Networking Symposium at Crom Castle in October 2019. Shelly is also the President of GIVENT Executive Network. She says she’s just a "Grandma from Idaho"...that is her favorite title next to being a Mom of 5, and the wife of her high school sweetheart of now 30 years....and being Mrs. Claus of course :)
