I plan to begin the keynote by discussing my prosthetic leg nicknamed "Freeda". This will be a humorous introduction to the fact that I have a prosthetic leg. I will discuss what it means to me to have a physical disability and growing up playing "able bodied" sports. The story of playing sports will lead into a discussion of how I found the Paralympic volleyball team and helped start the women's team. I will give the group and overview of the Paralympics, what they are and highlight some "fun facts" about the Paralympic Games.
I plan to segway into business and how the lessons I learned through sport helped me to have a successful 15 year career in the insurance industry. This keynote will highlight diversity, the power of sport, perseverance and never giving up. We typically find that individuals walk away with a re-focused positive attitude and tangible actions they can begin to execute in their business and everyday life.
