Internationally known speaker and a New York Times best-selling author, Andy Andrews, will share his story of overcoming adversity at the seventh annual Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame induction banquet on Tuesday, July 14 in Westminster, Colorado. Also highlighting the Hall of Fame banquet will be the induction of two new Hall of Fame members and the introduction of the 2015 Industry Leadership Award and Arturo Armendariz Distinguished Service Award winners.

Shortly after the deaths of his parents, Andrews became homeless in his early twenties. While homeless, he started reading biographies from the public library. The principles he discovered while reading over 200 biographies became the foundation of his career as a writer and speaker. Andrews’ books, “The Traveler's Gift,” “How Do You Kill 11 Million People?,” and “The Noticer”  have sold millions of copies worldwide.

Cited as a "modern-day Will Rogers who has quietly become one of the most influential people in America" by The New York Times, Andrews is known for sharing subtle, yet life-changing lessons through stories of adventure and intrigue. He has spoken at the request of four different U.S. presidents and toured military bases around the world, being called upon by the Department of Defense to speak about the ideologies shared in his books.

The reception begins at 5:30 p.m. Dinner and the program will follow at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are included with a registration to the Cattle Feeders Business Summit or can be purchased individually here or by calling Heather Monroe at 773-755-3000.
