2018 featured speaker
terry l. fossum


In the survival reality television show, Kicking and Screaming, 10 survival experts competed against each other for a $500,000 prize in the Fijian jungle:  a warlord, a ninja, two U.S. Air Force SERE Instructors, several U.S. Special Forces members….and a Scoutmaster?

Growing up in the poorest city in the United States surrounded by gangs and drugs, Terry faced a life with few opportunities.  One night he found himself staring down the barrel of an assault rifle.  Instead of following a path toward a dark future, he joined Scouting.  It changed his life.

Terry overcame great obstacles to earn a Mechanical Engineering degree from Texas A&M University and became an Officer in the U.S. Air Force, where  he received numerous awards. 

Upon retirement, Terry focuses on his wife and blended family and continues working on philanthropic work.

 An author of four highly-acclaimed books, Terry is an international speaker helping individuals and companies reach new heights, and telling how the underdog Scoutmaster and his partner overcame the odds to win one of the toughest survival contests ever seen on prime time network television.
