Are you wondering how you can better connect with consumers who want (and expect!) more?
Are you facing a big obstacle – professionally or personally – and wondering how you can persevere?
Do you find yourself feeling discouraged and need to reset your mindset and your attitude?
NFDA has you covered!
We’ve invited three enlightening, inspiring and motivating keynote speakers to speak to you at the 2022 NFDA International Convention & Expo. Taking place October 9-12 in Baltimore, Maryland, the world’s largest funeral service event will offer funeral service professionals a chance to break through the noise and build the skills and knowledge needed to serve modern funeral consumers and build thriving businesses.
Monday, October 10: Stories That Stick: The Irresistible Power of Strategic Storytelling presented by Kindra Hall, award-winning author and storytelling expert
Leaders at all levels are desperately trying to capture attention and resonate with consumers who expect more. Is there a secret weapon? The answer is strategic storytelling. Kindra Hall will reveal the psychology behind strategic storytelling and demonstrate how to fully take advantage of it. Using her actionable blueprint for effective storytelling, attendees will leave empowered and equipped to captivate customers and blow up their brand by leveraging the irresistible power of stories. Hall is sponsored by Homesteaders Solutions.
Tuesday, October 11: The Way Forward: Mastering Life’s Toughest Battles and Discovering Your Purpose presented by Sergeant Dakota Meyer, U.S. Marine Corps veteran and Medal of Honor recipient
Following an attack on his comrades in Ganjgal, Afghanistan, Dakota Meyer showed the ultimate level of courage and determination by entering the “killing zone” and saving the lives of many Afghan and American troops. Meyer draws from his military memoirs and lessons learned in his post-military life to share what it takes to survive, thrive, and tackle your biggest obstacles — whether in combat or in everyday life.
Wednesday, October 12: Embrace Your Thoughts, Elevate Your Life presented by John O’Leary, author, motivational speaker, and host of the “Live Inspired” podcast
It’s harder than ever to be a funeral director today. You work longer hours, and the job is more demanding, which can lead to burnout and stress beyond imagination. Some days, it’s easy to feel like the cards are stacked against you, but you can be empowered by your circumstances and overcome them. John O’Leary knows a thing or two about beating unimaginable challenges. As a child, he was burned on 100% of his body and was given less than a 1% chance to live. He could have given up, but he focused on having a positive perspective. John will share how thoughts are powerful and can change your life. O’Leary is sponsored by Funeral Directors Life.
