Opening Keynote: Inspiring a Better You

ESA is welcoming some inspiration to its Main Stage — as it kicks off four days of networking, education and best practice-sharing all aimed at growing electronic security and life safety leadership teams.

Chad Porter, best-selling author and coach, will deliver an address about overcoming obstacles and persevering.

Chad Porter is one of the nation's most inspirational and motivational speakers. His book Severed Dreams grabbed best-selling status in just a few days after it's release. He has been speaking for over 20 years, telling his story of dealing with life's challenges — while inspiring hundreds of thousands in the process.


 

“He’s one of those speakers who will keep you on the edge of your seat,” says Tim Worley Former Pittsburgh Steeler. “You won’t want him to stop.”

 

“Chad helped us galvanize our team as we headed into the football season,” says Sean Mcdermott, head coach of the Buffalo Bills. “He’s one of the best speakers we’ve had to date.”

 

“It is a powerful message,” says Dabo Swinney, head football coach. “It’s about toughness and attitude.”

 


Summit attendees will experience how a young boy overcomes a horrific tragedy to not only survive but to defy all odds and turn, what most would find insurmountable, into a life of inspiring people across the globe.

Walk with Chad as he recounts the obstacles he faces and listen to his uplifting message about perseverance, self-esteem, and accomplishing goals. 

Chad will touch your heart, your mind, and your soul, motivating your leadership team to be all that they can be both personally and professionally.
