Jon Dorenbos, our Opening General Session keynote speaker, suffered a devastating family tragedy in his childhood. Performing magic and playing pro football saved him, leading him to appearances on America’s Got Talent and 14 NFL seasons. After a life-threatening heart condition, he developed a road map for finding happiness. Life Is Magic—a story about overcoming life-or-death challenges with grace, persistence and a childlike sense of wonder—will wow and inspire you.
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R), a strong supporter of workforce and economic development across the state, has also been invited to officially welcome ABC to Nashville.
