Goggins is a Retired Navy SEAL, Endurance Athlete and Motivational Speaker

David Goggins will present the keynote speech at ADS, Inc.’s defense industry event Warrior Expo WEST on April 1 in San Diego, CA.

Warrior Expo WEST 2020: Readiness in the Age of Innovation

April 1-2 | San Diego Convention Center

Keynote Speaker David Goggins | Wednesday, April 1 at 0900

Readiness: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds

For Goggins, there is no scoreboard. He pushes himself past his comfort zone to achieve because no other experience makes him feel more clear, focused and alive. Hear Goggins describe the day one, week one mindset how to reframe your mind to a achieve the impossible.

PUSHING THE LIMIT

An accomplished endurance athlete, Goggins has competed in more than 60 ultra-marathons, triathlons and ultra-triathlons, setting new course records and regularly placing in the top five. A former Guinness World Record holder for completing 4,030 pull-ups in 17 hours, he was also the recipient of the 2018 VFW Americanism award and was inducted into the International Sports Hall of Fame in March of 2019.

He’s a much-sought-after public speaker who has shared his story with the staffs of Fortune 500 companies, professional sports teams and hundreds of thousands of students across the country. He is also the author of the NYT Bestseller Can’t Hurt Me.

WHAT DRIVES DAVID

All of the awards, medals, accolades and magazine articles mean nothing to David. That’s not why he does what he does. Although David has raised a lot of money and awareness for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, none of this recognition is relevant to him. He’s not trying to be number one in the world. He’s not interested in how many races he’s run. He doesn’t keep track of the miles he’s gone. Instead, it’s all about achieving his personal best.

Join ADS in San Diego, CA April 1-2 to hear from David Goggins before experiencing innovative solutions from industry-leading suppliers at Warrior WEST where we equip the modern warfighter with advanced capabilities that optimize performance, improve readiness and increase lethality and survivability.
