Keynote Speaker

Small Consistent Actions with Sam Demma

Thanks to an educator, Sam was taught a lesson that helped him build resiliency, reinvent his identity, and ultimately change how he viewed the world. Now, through this keynote, Sam shares this idea with an abundance of belly laughs, happy tears and breakthrough moments. Small, Consistent Actions are not only about changing the world at large but realizing that your smallest interactions can have positive effects on those around you. Prepare to be inspired, challenged and excited for your next taco dinner.
