Paciolan Announces Bonner Paddock as Closing Keynote Speaker at PACnet '14 Conference

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - Paciolan, an industry-leading provider of ticketing, marketing, fundraising and sales automation solutions to more than 500 live entertainment organizations, announced today that Bonner Paddock, founder of the OM Foundation, will be the closing keynote speaker at its annual PACnet community conference to be held Feb. 9-12, 2014 at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa in Newport Beach, Calif. Paddock will deliver his keynote, focused on his inspirational "life beyond limits" message, to all attendees at the closing luncheon on Wednesday, Feb. 12.

Paddock is the Founder of the OM Foundation, which promotes the idea that any one person can make a difference if they dedicate themselves to look beyond their own personal limits to achieve their goals. Paddock is the first person diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy to ascend Mt. Kilimanjaro and to finish the infamous Ironman World Championship (a 2.4-mile swim, 112 mile bike race, followed by a 26.2-mile marathon) unassisted. His ascent up Kilimanjaro helped raise money for a childcare center in Orange County, the Early Learning Center, providing early treatment for children with all types of physical disabilities. The OM Foundation also aids others in constructing first learning centers to serve children with and without disabilities in Orange County and across the globe.

"I am thrilled to share my message to the Paciolan community as the closing keynote at the PACnet '14 conference," said Bonner Paddock, Founder of the OM Foundation. "PACnet is a great opportunity to share encouraging and inspirational messages, as well as highlight the belief that each person can achieve their goals and conquer adversity."

Paddock is a successful motivational speaker represented by IMG Speakers, and is a frequent keynote speaker at industry conferences, including Evanta Executive Summits. His message focuses on finding the inner strength to move forward in spite of difficult circumstances, facing seemingly insurmountable odds, setting and achieving goals, and ultimately not accepting defeat.

"We are excited to have Bonner Paddock speak as our closing keynote at PACnet '14 and share his inspiring story," said Dave Butler, Chief Executive Officer at Paciolan. "Bonner is a motivating person who personifies that one man's mission can motivate others to find the inner strength to push their abilities beyond limits."
