Program Length: 45-60 minute Keynote Some of life's lessons are taught through our actions, and some are not of our own doing. Adversity is inevitable and it can come in varying degrees of severity. It is how we respond to the adversity which determines how we are defined. Keith teaches others to become who they want to be regardless of the circumstances of their life. Everyone has a story from the past, but not everyone has yet realized that they hold the POWER to write the remainder of their story. Keith challenges others to reinvent themselves without denying the past, but through using their experiences to recognize and bring forth the resilience they possess. Keith leads his life empowering others through his C.O.D.E. By the end of the presentation, audiences will be able to: 1. Measure personal experiences of harsh adversity for themselves and others around them. 2. Evaluate our responses to adversity in order to not be defined by the adversity. 3. Illustrate ways to reinvent ourselves and our organizations to be more effective to overcome adverse situations.
