IAAO Conference keynote speaker announced
Adrianne Haslet, a former ballroom dancer, survivor of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and inspirational speaker, will be the keynote speaker at the 2022 IAAO Annual Conference, Aug. 28-31 in Boston. Her presentation will be part of the Opening Session on Monday, Aug. 29.

Adrianne_headshot2_2211446.jpgIn 2013 Haslet didn’t know much about the Boston Marathon and was taking a lunch break from dancing when she happened to be near the finish line when bombing took place.

After losing her leg, Adrianne recognized the need for help across the amputee community and has become a global advocate for amputee rights. She has also become a runner and competed in the Boston Marathon three times, including this year.

Adrianne has spoken all over the world. Her debut TED performance has been viewed over 6.7 million times worldwide, and her debut at TEDx Beacon Street has been viewed over 2.2 million times.

“I refuse to be called a victim. A victim is defined by what happened in their life. I am a survivor, defined by how I live my life,” said Haslet.
