Funeral Directors Life to Sponsor Keynote Speaker John O’Leary at 2022 NFDA Convention & Expo

ABILENE, TX — Funeral Directors Life is proud to sponsor and partner with keynote speaker John O’Leary for his presentation titled, “Embrace Your Thoughts, Elevate Your Life” at this year’s National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) Convention & Expo in Baltimore, MD.

“It’s harder than ever to be a funeral director today,” said Kris Seale, President and CEO of Funeral Directors Life. “Dealing with a tidal wave of change – like the pandemic or shifting funeral preferences – year after year can be challenging and take a toll on funeral professionals’ well-being. We invited John to speak about positivity to provide a dose of encouragement and share with the audience how they can continue to make a difference in the lives of others.”

John is a two-time #1 national bestselling author of ON FIRE and IN AWE and host of the highly rated Live Inspired Podcast. Armed with a gift of storytelling, John will give a truly inspiring keynote presentation about how one can make a mighty difference in one’s own life and the lives of those they serve. The keynote will take place on October 12 at 12:15 P.M. ET.

“Though he has endured a lot, John brings a positive outlook wherever he goes – one that he chooses to have every single day,” added Seale. “Unexpected things happen in our profession and life in general, but we have the power to choose our outlook and how we respond, which is the theme of his message. We’re truly proud to sponsor him.”

Attendees have the opportunity to meet John in person and get their very own copy of one of his books at Funeral Directors Life’s booth (#641) during the convention. They can also learn about products and services to grow their profitability and minimize their day-to-day work.
