EPIC21 Leadership "Executive-Peers-in-Conference-21-Century Leadership Virtual Event

Where: Virtual Event

Dan Meers is a man whose energy, humor and excitement not only entertains but also encourages others to strive for the best of life.  Dan has served as KC Wolf, the official mascot of the Kansas City Chiefs for over 25 years.  His work and experiences as a professional sports mascot have reinforced to him the philosophy that laughter and a cheerful heart are good medicine. After listening to Dan, you realize that what makes him so truly special is his genuine desire to motivate others to enjoy life as much as he does.  The constant smile he wears comes from within.  The humorous message he shares has inspired thousands to live life to the fullest and to enjoy it each and every step of the way.
On November 23, 2013, Dan Meers came within inches of losing his life while practicing a bungee jump and zip line stunt at Arrowhead Stadium… home of the Kansas City Chiefs.  What Dan anticipated being the thrill of a lifetime ended up being the spill of a lifetime.  The stunt went terribly wrong and Dan plummeted 75 feet before crashing into the stadium seats.  Miraculously Dan survived.   He spent 9 days in the hospital and got some really big scars.  Dan smiles when he says, "Scars are just Tattoos that come with a Cool Story".  Dan is the author of the book "Wolves Can't Fly" and during his powerful presentation Dan shares his incredible story and the important lessons that he has learned about leadership and about life. 
"We were all just reminiscing about how awesome, inspirational and impactful Dan's talk was today.  He has challenged me to be a better leader."
 —Dwayne Martz,    Martz Bros. Lawn Care Inc.
"I was touched by your story and how the accident has changed your life.  You moved me to tears on more than one occasion.  Thank you again for the reminder to live each day to its fullest and to squash the negativity!"
—Kim Black,    Veritas Wealth Management
"Great job with picking today's speaker!  Dan was great to listen to and helps us all come back down to reality on what is important in life!"
—Austin Baier,    CBRE Industrial
