Aaron Davis

Opening Keynote Speaker
A member of the 1994 Nebraska national championship football team, Aaron Davis presents “Attitude of a Champion” in discussing how employee engagement is more than a buzzword – it’s one of the major building blocks to any successful company or organization. When it comes to attitude, there are NO benchwarmers!

Dr. Tom Osborne

Closing Keynote Speaker
Hall of Fame former University of Nebraska Football Coach Tom Osborne will focus on leadership and ethics in delivering the closing keynote presentation. Under his leadership, his football teams won three national titles in the 1990s and put together the best five-year run in the college football history. Upon retiring after 25-years as head coach, he had the nation’s best active winning percentage (.836), a mark that still ranks sixth all-time among Division I coaches. He also served in the U.S. Congress and founded the TeamMates program to support youth in pursuing education.
