LEWISVILLE, Texas — Service World Expo officials announced that American actor, author, motivational speaker, war hero, and retired U.S. Army soldier, J.R. Martinez, will speak at Service World Expo on “Plugging into Your Superpowers.”
Martinez is compelling and inspirational, enduring severe burns to over 34 percent of his body when his Humvee hit a roadside bomb. While three other soldiers were thrown out of the vehicle going up in flames, Martinez was stuck inside. His fight for survival is why the world stopped to listen.
Liz Patrick, Service World’s vice president of strategic alliances said, “J.R.’s story is truly remarkable. I can’t wait to see how his message of resilience and optimism will inspire and motivate our audience.”
Most people recognize Martinez from “Dancing with the Stars,” as he won the 13th season. However, his acting career began on the Emmy Award winning daytime drama “All My Children.” Since then he’s appeared on numerous television shows such as “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” and “Ellen.”
“This is a must-see presentation. Moving, inspiring, it will leave you speechless!” David Heimer, Service World’s COO exclaimed.
Contractors want to hear Martinez speak about his captivating experiences that have changed the lives of millions. The Service World Expo audience will have that chance.
Service World Expo is the bold, new, must-attend conference, trade show, and networking event for residential contractors involved in HVAC, Plumbing, or Electrical service who want to ignite growth and performance in their companies. Being held on Sept 7-8, 2017, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada, the event will encompass seminars, entertainment events, and a product showcase.
