C.A.R.E., the Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers

C.A.R.E. has announced the selection of its Keynote Speakers for its 68th Conference to be held at The Westin Sarasota, Sarasota, Florida from May 1-4, 2021.

Eric Papp, Founder of Agape Leadership, LLC

Eric Papp, Founder of Agape Leadership, LLC, will deliver the Keynote address ‘Taking Bold Action in Uncertain Times’ as C.A.R.E. members gather for the delayed celebration of their 35th Anniversary.

Eric Papp has worked with thousands of managers and has a successful history of delivering proven strategies for being productive and increasing performance in a complex world. During his engaging program, Papp will deliver proven strategies and concepts that leaders can apply to continue to take bold action. He will teach conference attendees how to deal with uncertainty, accelerate through change, and understand the advantage of a growth versus a fixed mindset. Additionally, he will share the three habits of effectiveness and offer solutions for dealing with procrastination and distractions.

According to C.A.R.E. President Linda Mayhugh “C.A.R.E. receives regular email solicitations from speakers looking to get on our agenda for conferences.  Occasionally, one will come across that catches my attention and Eric Papp is one of those attention getters.  His messages were personalized to me, including a YouTube video with him holding up a note saying Hi Linda…of course I had to click it and see what that was all about!  He knew it would (likely) preview the video first without sound and pique my curiosity enough to see what his message was all about.  He did this more than once, engaging me more and more each time.  I thought, if this guy can get my attention with one little YouTube video, he surely would be good for our conference and I hope I am right”!

Dave Whitley, ‘A Strongman with a Strong Message’

Iron Tamer, Dave Whitley, ‘A Strongman with a Strong Message’, originally slated to present at C.A.R.E.’s conference in Philadelphia in 2020, will deliver the second keynote address  “Superhuman YOU: Break the Chains of Limitations and Unleash Your Own Superpower”.  During his presentation, Dave will combine incredible feats of strength and a powerful message, creating a presentation unlike anything C.A.R.E. conference attendees have ever seen before.

According to Dave, we have a fascination with superheroes because we see the best qualities of ourselves in them and they are an exaggerated version of what we all aspire to be. He believes we each have at least one unique superpower, a life’s purpose. Dave will share how the principles of achieving this are the same, regardless of the goal. Conference attendees will learn how to how to discover and develop their own Superpower and how to use that power to live a success-filled and happy life.

Jeff Ingram, Speaker Committee Co-Chair, noted that “Keynote speakers at an industry conference is often an exercise of listening or watching much of the same old things, but not at C.A.R.E. 2021!

Dave Whitley is a motivational speaker who provides a stunning physical demonstration of the power of the mind and delivers a powerful message that is as motivating as it is entertaining!

But more importantly, everyone will leave inspired to become the greatest possible version…. the Superhuman version…. of themselves.

Dave does not just talk…He demonstrates his message with mind-blowing feats of strength…. like bending steel, ripping decks of cards, breaking chains and more…. C.A.R.E. attendees will keep talking long after the event is over!”

Given the extraordinary circumstances faced by the travel industry during the global COVID-19 pandemic and the timely subjects addressed by both Eric Papp and Dave Whitley, C.A.R.E.’s 68th conference will be a “not to miss” event as members and industry leaders gather in Sarasota. Conference registration will open in January 2021.
