Meet the Inaugural STN EXPO Indianapolis Keynote Speakers

Want to learn how to achieve the “Trust Edge” in your career and personal life while manifesting your dreams and at the same time ensuring your operational security is the best it can be? Then we look forward to hosting you in June 2019 at the “Crossroads of America.”

Indianapolis hosts the latest addition to the School Transportation News event family: STN EXPO Indianapolis. Attendees can expect to be challenged to think and act differently during the event, which is scheduled for June 7-12, 2019, at the JW Marriott, which will feature these confirmed keynote speakers.

David Horsager, author of “The Trust Edge: How Top Leaders and Organizations Drive Business Results Through Trust” and CEO of the Trust Edge Leadership Institute, will share insights on how to forge lasting relationships with supervisors, peers, parents, suppliers and more, to take your organization to the next level during a keynote address on Tuesday, June 11.

The STN EXPO Trade Show will be held at the adjoining Indianapolis Convention Center—about a 5-minute walk from the JW Marriott—immediately follows Horsager’s talk.

But first, the keynote series kicks off two days earlier with Ryan Avery, the youngest person ever to win the Toastmaster’s World Champion of Public Speaking, and since has become one of the millennial generation’s top thought leaders.

Those who attended the Transportation Director Summit at this year’s STN EXPO Reno will recall Avery’s strategies to become not just a leader, but THE leader. He will speak before the full STN EXPO Indy audience on how to accelerate achievements and manifest BIG dreams.

Also returning to the STN EXPO stage is Chris Dorn. Over a decade ago, he presented a workshop at the STN EXPO Reno on the countless ways student school bus riders can hide weapons on their person. Today, Dorn consults with the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, as well as with governments all over the world. He is also the author of five books on security, and is especially renowned, as is his company, Safe Havens International, for security work at schools, as well as at transportation departments.

Don’t miss these presentations, as well as other events, such as National School Bus Inspection Training. Don’t miss the opportunity to receive tours and/or training from Allison Transmission, Cummins, Inc. and SafeGuard/IMMI.
