Keynote Address

The Wagon To Disaster

Thursday, September 17, 8:30 to 9:30 AM

Aaron Beam, co-founder and the first chief financial officer of Healthsouth, will talk about the Healthsouth accounting scandal and why such frauds happen. Beam took part in the accounting fraud at Healthsouth, and in 2003 he pled guilty to the fraud and spent time in a federal prison for his crime. He began his public speaking career in 2009 and has spoken to over 250 groups on corporate fraud. Aside from the Healthsouth scandal, Beam will provide very useful examples of how you can develop a strong ethical character and how to improve the integrity of your company.

Aaron Beam, Author and Co-Founder of Healthsouth

Embracing Challenges

Thursday, September 17, 12:30 to 1:45 PM

Amy Van Dyken Rouen, a six time Olympic gold medal winner in swimming, has been faced with, and overcome, many challenges throughout her life. As a child with severe asthma, she could barely make it halfway across the pool. But with unwavering perseverance, she practiced and practiced, and eventually earned her spot on the US Olympic Swim Team. After she won four gold medals at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, she was plagued by a shoulder injury and was nearly written off from making it to the 2000 Summer Olympics. She ended up making a comeback and won two more gold medals. Her latest challenge is one that she calls “training for her life.” After an ATV accident left her paralyzed from the waist down in 2014, Amy vowed to walk again. Two months after her accident, she stood on her own and walked with the aid of a walker and a mechanical device. Amy’s long journey to rehabilitation and recovery continues, and she has learned to embrace the challenges that go along with the process. Amy’s story will serve to inspire you and make you think about your own responses and strategies when facing life and work challenges. She will leave an indelible mark with you, which hopefully you can draw from when it’s time to cross the proverbial bridge.
