Joe Pettit


Join Joe, the keynote speaker at the Opening General Session on Saturday morning, November 19 as he helps unleash the “Seeds of Greatness Within You”.

Joe struggled with substance abuse for much of his teenage and adult life. Drug-free and alcohol-free since 2016, he refocused his life placing family, sobriety, and leading others above all else. He speaks to groups about how they hold the key to unlock success if they’ll just believe and put in the work.

In his inspiring and life-changing talks, Pettit connects with audiences, teaching them that it is never too late to battle back from adversity and make dreams a reality.

He and his wife live in Charleston, South Carolina with their three children – Lexxie, Valdo, and Isabella.
