Closing Session - Wednesday
Jimmy Yeary is the rarest of speakers. For well over a decade, he has influenced millions of people--how they think and what they think about--on a daily basis. Jimmy Yeary is not only a highly sought-after speaker, but he is also a hugely successful songwriter, and his music is all around us.
Jimmy Yeary was writing songs long before becoming the lead singer of the Grammy Award winning supergroup SHENANDOAH. These were years that saw Jimmy performing #1 hits like Mama Knows, Somewhere In the Vicinity of the Heart, and Sunday in the South.
Jimmy has written more than two-thousand songs, many of which have been featured on albums selling millions of copies--Grammy winners, gold, and platinum awards among them. Nine of Jimmy's songs have been certified "Number 1" hits as singles by Billboard Magazine.
Recently, both the CMA and ACM awarded Jimmy Yeary with "Song of the Year" for I Drive Your Truck--the inspiring song he wrote about the father of a fallen soldier and how he continues to remember his son. Jimmy's most recent Number 1 was Everything's Gonna Be Alright, a song he wrote for Kenny Chesney and David Lee Murphy.
Jimmy Yeary isn't just a songwriter, a singer, or a speaker, he's an advocate for human emotion, connectedness, and outreach to all with whom he comes into contact. As a speaker, Jimmy weaves his ability to tell stories that speak to the heart and emotional memories of all mankind. Teaching these principles, we are better able to understand how they can lead and grow in our own organizations in a way that makes an impact and unites all under a common goal set and front.
