POHMS ANNUAL FALL CONFERENCE

ANNUAL FALL CONFERENCE

NOVEMBER 14-15, 2024

Join us as we celebrate POHMS 30th year!!!

 

Our Keynote Speaker this year is John Quinones

John Quinones

 

Combining a moving life story, an exceptional career, incomparable insights and a powerful presence, John Quiñones has emerged as one of the most popular inspirational speakers in the world today. His moving presentations focus on his odds-defying journey, celebrate the life-changing power of education, champion the Latino American Dream and provide thought-provoking insights into human nature and ethical behavior.

A lifetime of “never taking no for an answer” took Quiñones from migrant farm work and poverty to more than 30 years at ABC News, the anchor desk at 20/20 and Primetime and seven national Emmy awards for his reporting over the years. Along the way, he broke through barriers, won the highest accolades and became a role model for many.

As host and creator of What Would You Do?, the highly-rated, hidden camera ethical dilemma news magazine now on its 17th season, Quiñones has literally become “the face of doing the right thing” to millions of fans.
