Special Kids is delighted to announce Jon Acuff as our 2012 Friendraiser Banquet Keynote Speaker. Acuff is member of the Dave Ramsey speaker's group and is a best-selling author with three books under his belt- Quitter, Stuff Christians Like, and Gazelles, Baby Steps and 37 Other Things Dave Ramsey Taught Me About Debt.
Acuff's blog, Stuff Christians Like, has been read in 97% of the countries in the world by more than 2 million people. He is known for his humor and daring to ask the question 'What If?'.
Touring the country as a sought-after speaker, he’s worked with everyone from dairy farmers to CEOs of billion-dollar companies to turn ideas into action. Acuff has taken the opportunity to spend the last three years exploring what it means to take ideas to unexpected places, and it all started with the two words 'What If?'.
What if you took a dozen years of branding expertise and combined it with a visionary approach to social media? What if you could raise $30,000 in 18 hours to build a kindergarten in Vietnam? What if you took everything you learned from writing for The Home Depot, Chick-fil-A, Bose, Staples and other brand giants and applied it to leadership?
Two small words, one great start to a new career. Called “hilarious and insightful” by Group Magazine and featured as a regular contributor on CNN.com, Jon Acuff has a wealth of ideas to share with individuals and groups of all sizes.
