National Demolition Association announces the opening and closing keynote speakers for its Convention & Expo in Nashville, March 21-24.

DEMOLITION 2015 is the foremost venue for networking with others in our great industry.

The National Demolition Association (NDA) announces that popular motivational speaker and passionate advocate for financial education, Chris Hogan, has been chosen as the opening keynote speaker for DEMOLITION 2015, the association’s annual Convention & Expo taking place March 21-24 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, TN.

In addition, David Zach, futurist, trend-spotter and crowd-pleasing speaker will serve as the closing keynote presenter at the event, which has become the world’s largest exposition of demolition equipment, products and services.

“We’re very proud to present two very in-demand speakers at DEMOLITION 2015,” said Jeff Kroeker, President of the NDA. “Chris Hogan will speak on March 23 about the kinds of topics that resonate with our members and others involved in the demolition process, such as entrepreneurship, business improvement, leadership and financial hope. David will give us all the ‘big picture’ of what’s happening now and in the future in our business and professional lives. We think both men are the perfect choice to address the concerns of today’s demolition specialists," he added.

Once an All-American football player, Chris Hogan began his career as a vice president at a well-respected company, helping clients manage all phases of their businesses.    It was during that time he realized how money issues were negatively impacting families and marriages. Described as an “engaging and humorous speaker,” he now promotes financial education as a way to protect wealth and secure the future for today’s business leaders.

Zach, scheduled to speak on March 24, has addressed more than 1,500 associations, corporations and colleges with humorous and thought-provoking speeches on topics that have ranged from technology and economics to demographics and society. He is one of the few professionally trained futurists speaking today, having earned a master’s degree in Studies of the Future from the University of Houston, Clear-Lake.

Exhibits at the NDA event give visitors one-stop access to the full range of offerings to help businesses add efficiencies, capture new opportunities and increase their profit, according to Kroeker. “It’s also the foremost venue for networking with others in our great industry,” he said.

Social events at DEMOLITION 2015 include a pre-conference Annual Golf Tournament on March 21, a dinner cruise along the Cumberland River on the General Jackson Showboat on March 22, the Music City Honky Tonk Bash on March 23, and the NDA’s 42nd Annual Banquet on March 24. A pre-conference Leadership Development Workshop is also slated for the event on March 22.
