We are happy to announce Mallory Weggemann will now join us at LEAD 22 due to a cancelation of a previously scheduled speaker. Fresh from the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games, where she won 2 gold medals and a silver medal, Mallory Weggemann is passionate about sharing how to persevere in the face of adversity, overcome impossible obstacles, and redefine limits.
After an injury that led to permanent paralysis at the age of 18, Weggemann created a new life for herself. Within three-months of the injury, she found herself doing what she loved—swimming competitively—while chasing her dreams. In her keynote Small Steps, Big Impact: A “Small Victories” Approach to Leadership, Weggemann will share how to manage setbacks—especially those that come out of nowhere. Weggemann argues that we all have a choice: to allow limitations to overpower us, or face them in a journey toward new abilities and accomplishments. Focusing on mental fortitude and strength as the foundation for achieving personal greatness, along with defining boundaries, and reaching for individual goals and outcomes, Weggemann’s message offers takeaways for teams and individuals at all points in life’s journey.
