KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Adam Greenberg
Get Up | The Art of Perseverance
On July 9, 2005, Adam Greenberg stepped into the batter's box for his first major-league plate appearance with the Chicago Cubs. That moment was the culmination of his life's work and proudest achievement up to that point.
No one suspected the triumph of that moment would be obliterated by a 92 mile-an-hour first-pitch fastball striking Adam just under his helmet on the back of his head. The first pitch of his major-league career threatened not only the future of his ability to play baseball, but life itself.
Adam didn't know it at the time, but that pitch was a gift. What was both the greatest and worst split-second of his life sent him into an odyssey of struggle, pain, and confusion, which forged him slowly into the man he is today. What he thought was the destroyer of his dream was actually the birth of a greater one.
Get Up | The Art of Perseverance is not simply a baseball story or a story about a baseball player. This story is a beginning. No matter what you're doing or what you're facing, Adam offers his story of overcoming adversity and persevering through challenges in hopes of helping you relentlessly pursue your dream for your life.
