Just Announced: Keynote Speaker Eric McElvenny

Popular Winter Seminar speaker, endurance athlete, and Marine Corps veteran Eric McElvenny will return for this year's Fall Conference & Trade Show! 

Keynote with Eric McElvenny: Endurance Athlete

Time & date to be determined.


The CFSA is excited to announce the return of popular Winter Seminar speaker EricMcElvenny for this year's Fall Conference and Trade Show!


Eric is an endurance athlete living in San Diego, California. He earned a mechanical engineering degree from the United States Naval Academy while preparing for his service as a Marine Corps Infantry Officer.


Eric deployed three times as a Marine and on his final tour, an incredible experience in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, was wounded after stepping on an IED. Eric suffered the amputation of his right leg below the knee, 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. On his journey from the hospital bed in southern California to the finish line in Kona Hawaii, he realized that the challenge 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.

Join Eric as he explores the characteristics, traits and actions he found most useful in his journey from the hospital bed to the Ironman World Championships finish line. During this presentation, Eric gives his audience tools and techniques to overcoming life's obstacles through powerful, funny and emotional stories.

More details about Eric's keynote will be announced soon. Be sure to arrive early: this is a presentation you won’t want to miss!


Eric McElvenny's presentation is made possible through the generous support of Jerry & Patti Burchett.
