Dr. Alex Ellis, nationally renowned motivational speaker and author, was the keynote speaker during the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board’s Y4 event.  Personal presentation was this year’s theme, and youth were dressed in professional attire procured from Goodwill.  Dr. Ellis underscored that one’s outfit should compliment their true nature.  “I don’t want you wearing a shirt and tie, and you’re at home beating your girlfriend. Be the best person you can be on the inside and express it through clothing on the outside in order to get the respect and reputation you deserve.”
