KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Paralympic medalist Bonnie St. John
Despite having her right leg amputated at age five, St. John became the first African-American to win medals in Winter Paralympic competition, taking home a silver and two bronze medals in downhill events at the 1984 Paralympics in Innsbruck, Austria. In recognition of this historic achievement, St. John was quoted on millions of Starbucks coffee cups and was honored at the White House by President George W. Bush.
The author of seven books, St. John's most recent book, Micro-Resilience: Minor Shifts for Major Boosts in Focus, Drive and Energy, outlines a quick, easy and immediately effective program of tools and techniques to give readers a competitive edge in today's dynamic world of changes and challenges.
