Santa Barbara-based speaking management firm, the Joy Agency, announces a seven-city Spring 2016 nationwide celebrity speaking tour with professional surfer, Bethany Hamilton. Her tour will begin on Saturday, March 26th and it will conclude on Saturday, April 9th. Bethany will be speaking in Orlando, Florida, Melbourne, Florida, Kalamazoo, Michigan, Rapid City, South Dakota, Columbus, Ohio, Columbia, Missouri, and Bear, Delaware. Bethany’s tour manager Katelin Ridenour says, “We estimate Bethany will speak to over 18,000 people in seven days.”
Bethany came to the spotlight when she lost her arm in a 2003 shark attack. Instead of allowing her injury to dismantle her life and dreams, Bethany came back stronger and has gone on to become one of today’s most prominent and respected pro-surfers and faith icons. She now travels across the world to share with others how to turn their loss into triumph and how to gain resilience in the face of hardship.
When asked about her speaking tour, Bethany said, “The grace of Jesus Christ and his unwavering truth has been and is my anchor through all of life’s storms. Now, I love sharing my life story with people to encourage them to overcome adversity. It brings my life joy to share a message of true hope.”
Bethany’s tour stops will include a live speaking appearance, a VIP event where attendees will have the opportunity to meet Bethany and take a photo with her. To follow the tour via social media, follow the hashtag: soulsurferontour.
Kevin Durham, from This Is My Story in Orlando and the first host on Bethany’s tour, says, ”We chose to bring Bethany live to Orlando to help reach those locally who may be in need of encouragement, inspiration, or hope.”
Bethany’s speaking managers, Paige Kearin and Katelin Ridenour of the Joy Agency, collaborated to elevate Bethany’s voice by producing this seven-city tour. The Joy Agency is a boutique speaking management firm located in Santa Barbara, California. It manages celebrity-speaking careers. This is Bethany’s fifth tour with the Joy Agency. When asked about her relationship with Bethany, Paige replied, “Not only is Bethany an inspiration to her fans, but she’s also an inspiration to me and our internal team. She lives her life with beauty, grace and courage in front of and behind the scenes. Representing a woman like Bethany gives our work meaning. We feel profound purpose in showcasing her as a living example of a thriving and joy-filled modern-day woman.”
