About Josh Packard, PhD
As the Executive Director of the Social Research Lab, I have a passion for conducting and translating rigorous research into accessible and actionable insights for speakers, consultants, and entrepreneurs who are looking to level up their businesses to compete in a new, data-driven world. We have written for Speaker magazine, appeared on the main stage at NSA Influence and Winter conferences, and helped numerous speakers level-up their businesses.
I am a sociologist, professor, and researcher at the University of Northern Colorado, where I also serve as the Executive Director of the Social Research Lab. My own research has appeared in numerous academic and trade publications. I earned my B.A. in English from Texas Lutheran University and my M.A. and Ph.D. in Sociology from Vanderbilt University.

FSA Virtual Social: Show & Tell
Our 2020/2021 Chapter Socials now have a new format: Show and Tell! Each month, we will focus on a new topic chosen by participants! Here’s how it works. To conclude our social, we will poll everyone on the call to ask you which topic you’d like to discuss next. Your choice will be our Show and Tell topic for the next meeting. We will also accept suggestions for future topics and add those to the poll. Majority rules! We will also take some time to socialize and get to know each other as we learn from each other! See you soon!
