OPENING KEYNOTE
ONE MORE THING, ONE MORE TIME

Josh Sundquist is a 2006 US Paralympic ski racer.  As a bestselling author and motivational speaker, Josh has been featured on CNN and in USA TODAY and has spoken across the world. His high-octane blend of energy and humor inspires organizations and individuals to adopt his ski racing motto, 1MT1MT (one more thing, one more time) as their new standard of excellence. Josh shares stories about losing his leg to cancer, ski racing in the Paralympics, and playing jokes with his artificial leg to impart motivation for overcoming adversity and reaching peak performance.


DAVID RENDALL

CLOSING SESSION
The Freak Factor: Discovering Uniqueness by Flaunting Weakness

During the last 15 years, David Rendall has spoken to audiences on every inhabited continent.  His clients include the US Air Force, Australian Government, and Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft and AT&T.  Prior to becoming a speaker, David was a leadership professor, stand-up comedian, and non-profit executive.  Our parents, teachers, and managers have told us that, if we want to succeed, we should find and fix our weaknesses. However, this is the wrong approach because each weakness is also a strength. Join David Rendall and find out how to create outrageous personal and professional success by amplifying flaws, instead of denying them.
