Lunch Keynote Day 1:
Dan Meers, K.C. Wolf Mascot - Kansas City Chiefs

On November 23, 2013, Dan Meers came within inches of losing his life while practicing a bungee jump and zip line stunt at Arrowhead Stadium… home of the Kansas City Chiefs. What Dan anticipated being the thrill of a lifetime ended up being the spill of a lifetime. The stunt went terribly wrong and Dan plummeted 75 feet before crashing into the stadium seats. Miraculously Dan survived. He spent 9 days in the hospital and got some really big scars. Dan smiles when he says, “Scars are just Tattoos that come with a Cool Story”. Join us for this special presentation where will Dan share his incredible story and the important lessons that he learned during his long road to recovery about leadership and about life.
