Convention Speakers      

Thursday Evening
Keynote Address

Sparked by the loss of his father in 2012, Alex Sheen created a movement to better humanity by not missing opportunities to help others.

Alex founded Because I Said I Would, and began sending promise cards to anyone who requested them at no cost. Today Because I Said I Would has sent more than 8 million promise cards to 150 countries around the world. Alex travels the world encouraging others to find ways to make a difference, make a commitment and follow through.

Alex Sheen is the convention kickoff speaker and will share the powerful message of Because I Said I Would at the opening session on Thursday, April 26, at 7:00 p.m. Learn more about Alex at www.becauseisaidiwould.com.
