Ideagen has secured the most decorated Olympic gymnast in history as the after-dinner speaker for its upcoming US customer seminar.
Shannon Miller, a seven-time Olympic medallist and the only female athlete to be inducted into the US Olympic Hall of Fame twice, will entertain delegates at Ideagen's annual 'Horizons Seminar'.
During her appearance, Ms. Miller will talk about the sacrifices and dedication required to reach her sporting heights, which include becoming the first US gymnast to win two World All-Around Titles as well as gaining the highest medal haul by any US athlete in any sport at the 1992 Olympics.
At the ’96 Games, further success followed when she led the “Magnificent Seven” to the US Women’s first ever Team Gold. In another first for an American gymnast, she also won Gold for her performance on the Balance Beam.
In 2011, the decorated athlete was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer. Now cancer-free, she continues to be a strong advocate for awareness and early detection.
Ben Dorks, Ideagen’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are extremely pleased to have attracted such a true American icon for our guests at Ideagen Horizons North America later this year.
"Shannon Miller is the epitome of the American dream; she is a hard-working, dedicated and talented individual who achieved a level of success that has yet to be matched by any American athlete since.
“The success of her professional life is well documented, but even in her personal life, Shannon has been forced to show great courage and resilience to make a full recovery following her cancer diagnosis in 2011.
“For delegates at our event, this is an amazing opportunity to ask an Olympic gold medallist questions regarding her life and career, and how lessons learned through sport have helped her in every aspect of life.”
The ‘Ideagen Horizons North America’ event will take place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Metropolitan over two days between Tuesday, October 9th and Wednesday, October 10th.
The event is exclusively aimed at users of Ideagen’s Q-Pulse, PleaseReview and Pentana software for quality, safety, risk, audit and performance management.
Ideagen Horizons North America is now in its third year having previously been held in both Chicago and Orlando. The event has continued to grow in stature and size and this year will be held in New York for the first time.
