Keynote Speakers



Scott Mann

Thursday General Session, Pacific B Ballroom

As a Green Beret in the United States Army, Scott Mann forged bonds and solved problems using values that moved people around the world to stand up for themselves. His secret? He was able to restore trust and create human connections in places where that didn’t seem possible.

Current motivational speaker, Scott teaches corporate leaders and their teams the relationship-building techniques that drive so many of his successful combat operations.


Vince Papale

Friday General Session, Pacific B Ballroom

Vince Papale is a former American football player. He played three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League following two seasons with the Philadelphia Bell of the World Football League. Vince's story was the inspiration behind the 2006 film Invincible

“Not often can a person see a film made about their own life’s journey,” Vince Papale said of Invincible. “What’s even rarer is having that movie described as inspirational, motivational, and giving hope. There’s a feeling of intense pride and humility that, at times, is overwhelming.”
