Overcome Your Limitations at #ACNC23 with Celebrated Keynote Speaker Amy Purdy

Jul 3, 2023 |

You’ve seen her on the podium at the Paralympic Winter Games and compete for the coveted Mirrorball trophy on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars – now Amy Purdy will share how she rose to these achievements during the 2023 National Conference! End your conference experience on the highest note with the closing keynote given by one of the most in-demand motivational speakers in the world.

No matter your age or circumstance, Amy’s incredible story will help you shift your mindset and learn how to turn your greatest obstacles into opportunities. Amy went into septic shock as a teenager and survived meningococcal meningitis, a rare and often deadly bacterial blood infection.

Due to losing circulation in her extremities, Amy became a bilateral below-knee amputee, but her passion for snowboarding superseded the obstacles she faced. Amy has since won medals on the U.S. Paralympic Snowboarding Team in 2018 and 2014, become a New York Times best-selling author, and toured the country as a speaker with Oprah Winfrey.

Enjoy this powerful closing keynote and seated brunch on Saturday, August 5, from 10:00am to noon. Leave Orlando inspired and expectant for all the future holds for you!
