From David Hoyt, President of The John Maxwell Company:
I thought our speakers did an incredible job. I had so many takeaways from John, Pat Lencioni, Valorie Burton, and Kevin Turner. We could not have had a more perfect Emcee than Traci Morrow – she added so much spark to the event. I think the highlight for many was having Zac Fike at the event and sharing his story. Emma Pitts of Crafted and her team did a phenomenal job putting Zac’s video story together.
Zac was given a check for $10,000 from John on behalf of The John Maxwell Company at the end of the event in support of his foundation, Purple Hearts Reunited. The video tells more about the organization. And, John gave $5 from each John Maxwell Company product purchased at the event and on the online store that day to his foundation, as well. John did this as an expression of gratitude toward Zac for living intentionally, pursuing something he is passionate about and making a difference in the lives of others.
