Do you believe in miracles? There are few industries that have faced and overcome more adversity than biodiesel. Yet as the American energy landscape begins to experience a meaningful transformation, biodiesel is right there in the mix, coming off another record year of production. While challenges like uncertainty over the federal renewable fuel standard continue to push our industry to its limits, biodiesel has proven one thing: we’re strong and getting stronger, while making our nation stronger, too. 

Winning as an underdog is something the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo keynote speaker knows about. Olympic gold medalist Jim Craig, best known as the goalie for 1980 USA “Miracle on Ice” Hockey Team, will show us what can happen when you don’t give up. The game made history when the U.S. hockey team beat the heavily favored Russians and went on to win the Olympic gold medal in what’s been labeled the greatest sports moment of the 20th Century. 

Craig is currently president of Gold Medal Strategies, a motivational speaking and sales training company. During the past 30 years, he has inspired and provided strategic and winning direction for employees and associates from more than 500 organizations and some of the world’s most recognized brands. Craig’s latest business book, Gold Medal Strategies, Business Lessons from America’s Miracle Team, was published in 2011.
