Dream Team of TapRooT® Summit Keynote Speakers

Shannon Miller

2021 Dream Team…

Every year we had a great team of speakers at the Global TapRooT® Summit. Years ago I realized I get to pick the Summit speakers so why not pick people I really want to hear from.

Who do we have this year?

Inky Johnson

Our closing speaker is UT football hero Inky Johnson. If you have heard Inky speak, you know how inspiring he is. And I know you will want to hear him again.  If you haven’t heard him speak, you need to hear him in person.

What did sportswriter Gentry Estes have to say about Inky?

“For all the right reasons, Inky Johnson is truly the most remarkable
and inspirational athlete that I’ve ever covered –
and continue to keep up with to this day.”

Truly, it would be worth coming to the Summit just to hear Inky’s talk. Make sure you stay to hear Inky’s talk at the closing of the Summit.

Our opening Keynote Speaker is Shannon Miller.

Olympic Athlete Shannon Miller – Gymnast – 7 Olympic Medals

Who is Shannon …

Olympic Medalist, Shannon Miller is the only female athlete to be inducted into the US Olympic Hall of Fame – Twice! [Individual (2006) and Team (2008)]

Shannon has won an astounding 59 International and 49 National competition medals. Over half of these have been gold. In 1993/94 Shannon became the first US gymnast to ever win back-to-back World All-Around Titles, and she is the first American female to medal in the individual all-around of a non-boycotted Olympics. Her tally of five medals (two silver, three bronze) at the ’92 Olympics was the most medals won by a US athlete in any sport. At the ’96 Games, she led the “Magnificent Seven” to the US Women’s first-ever Team Gold, and for the first time for any American gymnast, she captured Gold on the Balance Beam. She is the first American gymnast to win an individual gold medal at a fully-attended summer games and cemented her place as the most accomplished gymnast, male or female, in U.S. Olympic history.

In January of 2011, Shannon was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer. She had the baseball-sized tumor removed successfully and followed up with an aggressive chemotherapy regimen. Shannon has remained open and public about her diagnosis and treatment and continues to empower women to make their health a priority. Shannon is currently cancer-free and continues to be a strong advocate for early detection.

Shannon’s book, “It’s Not About Perfect: Competing for My Country and Fighting for My Life,” is her inspirational memoir written to encourage and empower others to break through and overcome their own personal challenges.

Shannon remains involved with the sport of gymnastics and the Olympics as a commentator and analyst.

What is Shannon talking about? A Gold Medal Mindset.

Do you think it took a Gold Medal Mindset to accomplish this?

That’s how she earned her individual gold medal at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

And that same mindset can help you accomplish your most difficult improvement goals.

On Thursday of the 2021 Global TapRooT® Summit, you will hear Vincent I Phipps talk about improving your communication skills.

Vincent I Phipps - VIP

Vincent previously spoke at the Summit. Each time he speaks, he grabs the audience’s attention and teaches them to use communication skills to improve their job performance.

Another of our Keynote Speakers on Thursday is Dan Verlinde, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of System Improvements.

Dan will provide a practical example of how you could use the TapRooT® Software and App to respond to a major accident and coordinate your incident response.
