Scott O'Grady tied the presentation into our industry, specifically talking about how we take care of our clients. Even though it happened to him years ago, you could still feel the emotion. There wasn't a dry eye in the house.

You could have heard a pin drop once Scott started his story. I had heard him in November and was as much enthralled as everyone. His story is so moving that even some of the guys were emotional. He made us all so proud to be American.

We like hiring keynote speakers that have an instant connection with our members – even before they meet. Scott couldn’t have been more perfect! His story has been out there for a time, but our members remembered it well and got the chance to relive almost every detail and moment as Scott re-inspired them with his miraculous tale of survival, acts of courage, and evident devotion to God, family and country. Scott embodies what’s great about our country and what we can all strive to accomplish and become when we prepare, work hard, and stay focused.
