"Not only were the conference evaluations outstanding, the evaluations of Eric's work were absolute best, #1." ERIC OFFERS: 1. In-Person Keynote Address 2. Virtual Keynote Address 3. Breakout Sessions Keynote Proposal “Harnessing Resilience in the Face of Change” Abstract Successful companies adapt to a changing environment whether that change comes from growth, transformation, technology, innovative strategy or other sources. This change is overwhelming when professionals are not equipped with the tools to adapt and thrive. This presentation pulls from the journey of resilience from the loss of my leg in combat to the Ironman World Championships where I utilized the tools every working professional should master to guarantee success in an evolving environment. “We enjoyed his talk, his relaying of personal story, and the message of perseverance, resiliency and goal achievement was extremely well received by our audience!” -Shannon Rodgers, Manager – IT Customer Service, Koppers Inc. Learning Objectives *Learn the four principles of managing change. *Identify five character traits of perseverance. *Walk away with four implementable action steps to develop a resilient mindset. ABOUT ERIC: - Husband and Father - Professional Speaker, inspiring audiences across the country for a decade - Naval Academy Graduate Class of 2006 - Marine Corps Infantry Officer (wounded in combat suffering leg amputation) - Ironman World Championship finisher - 8 x Ironman Finisher (PR 10:20) - Tokyo Paralympian - Paris Paralympic Hopeful THIS PROGRAM IS PERFECT FOR: - Corporate Events - Associations - Meetings/Conferences - Schools and Universities - Athletic Teams LONG BIO: Eric McElvenny is an engaging communicator and an expert in teaching resilience. In 2006, Eric graduated the United States Naval while preparing for his service as a Marine Corps Infantry Officer. Eric deployed three times as a Marine and on his final tour, an experience in Afghanistan, was wounded after stepping on an IED. Eric suffered the amputation of his right leg, a life-changing opportunity that began his next journey. Faced with a physical challenge and an uncertain future, Eric made a promise to himself to run an Ironman Triathlon. Eric went on to complete 8 Ironman Triathlons to include the World Championships in 2013. Eric recently had the privilege of representing Team USA at the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. Throughout his journey, Eric realized that the challenges and adversity he was up against and the techniques he used to reach the finish line could be used against the challenges we all entertain. When not training, racing and delivering inspiration, Eric can be found with his wife Rachel and three children in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Eric was aaaaaaaamazing! Our team really loved him. He was funny, energetic, engaging, accommodating. We cannot say enough nice and complimentary things about Eric. If we could give him 6 out of 5 stars we would.

Wish I could give more stars! Eric made our event so much better. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. The presentation had highs and lows and moments that were funny but also moments that made you self reflect. In the event re-cap at the end of the day, Eric was more quoted than any of our industry professionals. Book this guy, you will not regret it.

All in all Eric was a fantastic choice for our meeting. He was very responsive, professional, and engaging right from moment he quoted us through his talk with our group. His story is extremely moving and motivational. Our whole group was completely drawn into his story and the accomplishments that Eric has been able to achieve in such a short period of time. We would hire him again in a heartbeat and would recommend him to any other company!!
