KEYNOTE SPEAKER

CHAD HENNINGS

In order to achieve a legacy of excellence, one must live a life of integrity and purpose. Excellence isn’t a destination; it’s an identity. Chad Hennings has lived this message through a nine year NFL career and three Super Bowl Championships with the Dallas Cowboys, forty-five combat missions flying the A10 Warthog with the Air Force, and as a respected businessman in commercial real estate. Chad has taken this message around the world at the invitation of some of the most distinguished audiences ranging from Fortune 500 companies, a host of U.S Government agencies, and respected non-profits. He is also a philanthropic leader in the Dallas/Ft Worth area serving several non profits that work with at risk families and veterans. Chad is the founder of Wingmen Ministries, an organization that encourages discipleship and mentorship of men.

Chad challenges audiences to realize it’s not what we do that determines who we are, but that it’s who we are that determines what we do.

Chad and his wife, Tammy, have a son, Chase, and a daughter, Brenna. They reside in Flower Mound, Texas.
