One of my favorite elements of RootsTech is the amazing line up of keynote speakers. I love hearing their stories of their dreams, challenges, triumphs and how family traditions or history affected their lives.
Yesterday, RootsTech announced Emmitt Smith as one of their keynote speakers in 2020. Now, I am not much of an NFL football fan, but even I have heard of Emmitt Smith because of how incredible he is as a person! There’s much more to him than football, and I love a life reinvention story more than anything. Smith has transitioned from professional football to the role of successful businessman and entrepreneur, running several companies in a number of industries. Most notably, with his wife, Smith founded the Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities to provide unique experiences and opportunities to underserved youth. Someone who gives back to the community will always have my utmost respect and admiration. I can’t wait to hear his message!
Over the next several weeks as we travel the road to RootsTech, I look forward to future speaker announcements!
