The Keynote Speaker is Dan Meers, the Kansas City Chiefs’ KC Wolf mascot. In 2013, Dan came within inches of losing his life while practicing a bungee jump and zip line stunt at Arrowhead Stadium. The stunt failed and Dan plummeted 75 feet before crashing into the stadium seats. Miraculously he survived and endured 9 days in the hospital and was permanently scarred. You won’t want to miss this powerful presentation when Dan shares this incredible story and the important lessons he learned during his long road to recovery about leadership and life.
