Convention Speakers      


Thursday Evening
Keynote Address

Like many young men growing up in Chicago, Walter Bond dreamed of becoming an NBA athlete. Facing injuries and other challenges with unusual determination, he rose from being a reserve player coming off the bench to become the first rookie free agent to start for the Dallas Mavericks. This astonishing journey provides the foundation for the powerful principles Walter teaches today. Walter's stories give listeners a roadmap they can follow to reinvent themselves and recover the confidence they need to level up in their professional lives. Drawing on lessons learned in the trenches both in sales and as an entrepreneur, Walter's presentations open up new ways of looking not only at business challenges, but also the world.

Walter's stories are rich with humor, emotions, and authentic breakthroughs. His inventive phrasing, mannerisms, body language, pacing, and wisdom exert a powerful effect on his audiences, making his message memorable for months and years to come.

Walter has impacted hundreds of thousands of people in his rapid rise to the top of the speaking industry. Through his keynotes, workshops, books and CDs, Walter teaches that when you learn to eliminate excuses, understand the power of mentorship and control your mindset, that confidence and success are possible for all who desire it. Recognized as one of the world's preeminent experts on sales, motivation, and leadership, Walter has been helping people turn self-limiting beliefs into self-empowering strategies for more than a decade.




Friday Evening (7pm)
Keynote Address

Even though Adrian Schunk knew all about FFA from her dad, who as a member, it wasn't until her agriculture teacher encouraged her to compete in the Creed speaking leadership development event that she developed a passion for the organization.

"Ever since then, I have fallen in love with the corduroy community and the growth we pursue together," she said. While attending Mason High School, she had two supervised agricultural experiences (SAE): agricultural education and maple syrup production.

Schunk was elected to the 2018-2019 National FFA Officer Team as eastern region vice president at the 91st National FFA Convention and Expo. Majoring in communications, Schunk is a sophomore at Michigan State University. She served as the 2017-2018 Michigan FFA State President.

"In every conversation I am afforded this year, I hope FFA members are pointed back to their value and potential," Schunk said. "Our chapters, communities, organization, and industry need each of us. I cannot wait to continue pursuing diversity and inclusion in the National FFA Organization to meet the diverse needs of our world, together."
