We are very please to report that we have booked as our Keynote Speaker Super Bowl Champion Matt Birk.  Matt is a 15-year veteran of the National Football League and currently serves as Special Assistant to the National Football League. A six-time NFL Pro Bowl Selection and two-time All Pro, Matt proved to be an undisputed leader on the field and was named the sixth smartest athlete by Sporting News. A graduate of Harvard University with a degree in economics, Matt was the recipient of the 2011 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award for his excellence on and off the field, including his commitment to emphasizing the importance of education through his H.I.K.E. Foundation. Established in 2002, H.I.K.E. stands for hope, inspiration, knowledge, and education, and impacts the lives of at-risk children by providing interactive programs and resources needed to guide a child though key educational transitions.

Matt speaks to organizations across the country about the value of true inspiration, lasting leadership principles, the dynamics of teamwork, and fulfilling potential. He is the author of All Pro Wisdom: "The Seven Choices that Lead to Greatness."  Originally from St. Paul, Minnesota, Matt and his wife, Adrianna, are the proud parents of eight children.

We hope that you can join us in Spearfish and hear Matt's presentation.  More information about our planned conference program and a registration form for this year's event will be coming soon.
