The Society of Plastics Engineers’ (SPE) Thermoset Division announced on Feb. 17 that Joe Theismann, entrepreneur, NFL Network analyst and former Washington Redskins star quarterback, will be a guest speaker at the SPE Thermoset Topical Conference (TOPCON) and Exhibits April 7-8, 2011. This event will be held at the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago, Ill., USA.

Theismann will present a popular keynote topic, "Challenge of Change." He will speak April 7 from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the SPE Thermoset TOPCON. Drawing from personal experience, Theismann delivers an inspiring look at the challenges of change. In 1985 he was a two-time Pro Bowl player and the most productive quarterback in the history of the Washington Redskins. That same year a compound fracture to his leg shattered his career and he faced restarting his personal life and professional career. In this presentation, individuals and organizations learn how to manage unforeseen change, as well as the mental outlook necessary for positive results. This high-energy presentation will inspire the excellence, leadership and teamwork necessary to the success of today’s changing domestic manufacturing industry.

“We are pleased to offer the opportunity to hear Mr. Theismann deliver his personal story to our TOPCON attendees”, stated Jeffry Schumm, SPE Thermoset Division chair. “As we search for ways to grow our businesses in the face of changing times, this game plan for success, if you will, is a timely and relevant discussion that can be applied to today’s composite materials industry.”

Theismann will attend the SPE Thermoset Division’s sponsored meet-and-greet cocktail reception April 7, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Sponsors of this event include ATF Inc., AkzoNobel, Ashland Chemical, Automotive Newswire, Bulk Molding Compounds Inc., Composites Technology, Mar-Bal Inc., Reichhold Inc., and Sumitomo Bakelite North America.
