Keynote Speaker

We would like to announce our keynote speaker Clark Roberts.

Catch the Vision for a Life of Significance or (Life Lessons through the eyes of Blind Guy)

Just when you thought you saw your life clearly, you get blindsided. Blindsided by doubt, by challenges, by pain, by sickness, by death, by a redirection of your purpose. What do you do to stay significant? Today you will gain a deeper understanding of the importance of not only living life, but living a life of significance no matter what:

1. Trust - the value and significance of trusting in what you cannot see (blindfolds will be provided for this part)

2. Trying – the value and significance of taking a calculated risk and blindly stepping out of your comfort zone

3. Training – Why training for the failure is as important (if not more) as training for the success

4. Thriving – the incredible value of learning how to live a life where you thrive, making a difference in not only your life, but in the lives of those you serve.

5. Thankful – The value of being thankful for what you can and cannot see
