Todd Huston
Motivational Speaker

Todd Huston has been featured in thousands of publications throughout the world including Sports Illustrated, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, as well as, the popular book Chicken Soup for the Soul, A Second Helping. He has appeared as a special guest on CBS Year in Sports, and interviewed on ABC, NBC, CBS, and other major national and international stations.

Todd shares his motivational story -- one that will inspire anyone to believe they can overcome life's many challenges. His presentation centers around an accident he had at age 14, where he died twice, and which eventually led him to having one of his legs amputated. He went on to do what many thought was impossible. He became a world record holder for climbing the highest elevation in each state, as an amputee, surpassing the able-bodied record by 35 days.


Free parking will be available on the conference grounds.
