Annual Convention

On Sunday, April 27, Eric Greitens will address NAHAD attendees with a stirring presentation based upon his New York Times bestselling memoir, Why it Takes the The Heart & The Fist.

Eric GreitensHe will share the fundamental philosophy of his life’s work: to be effective in solving the world’s problems or even just to live a meaningful life, one must live with both courage and compassion. Eric will show how to apply that lesson to our own frontlines to create purpose in our lives. Through his masterful storytelling, he’ll take NAHAD members on an adventure around the world, introducing them to the many teachers who have influenced him: the nuns of Mother Teresa’s home for the destitute and dying, his boxing coach in inner-city Durham, his Navy SEAL instructors, and refugees from Bosnia and Rwanda. Along the way, he includes lessons on humility, vision, courage, hope, and friendship. With striking images from his travels abroad, engaging stories, and a fresh look at today’s challenges, Eric will inspire each of us to become stronger, more compassionate, more courageous individuals.
