MONDAY, FEBRUARY 14 (DAY ONE) – Kicks off with an emotional performance by local Dallas celebrity Breez Carver, age 13, with over 20M views on Facebook, and millions more on YouTube, Instagram. Carver is a dancer who competed on Season 16 of America's Got Talent. Breez is now 13 years old. She started dancing when she was 5 years old.
The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders will follow her in an unforgettable opening performance to AC/DC Thunderstruck and open for SVG Founder & CEO, Anthony Delmedico.
Anthony will open WTS with a speech relating the “Greatest Trade in NFL History” to business leaders and their teams. He will be followed by Herschel Walker and Jimmy Johnson who will continue this “Winning and Mindset” theme on their main stage speaking performance, and openly discuss the greatest trade in NFL History, how it affected them, and how it can relate to business leaders today. This is one of the first times these two have taken the stage together since parting ways in 1990.
From Anthony Delmedico:
“Herschel Walker was one of the key trades Jimmy Johnson made to winning multiple Super Bowls. This was the biggest trade in NFL history, as it involved 18 players or picks. At the time, Herschel was considered one of the greatest players of all time, earning the Heisman Trophy in 1982. He began his NFL Career with the Dallas Cowboys in 1986.
“In 1989, at the peak of Walker's NFL career, the Cowboys sent Herschel Walker to the Vikings for five players and six draft picks. Those picks turned into players such as Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Kevin Smith, and Darren Woodson. And one that built the Cowboys' dynasty of the 90s!
“The team went on to dominate the NFL for the better part of the decade. The Cowboys won Super Bowls in 1993, 1994 and 1996. Jimmy was inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2012 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2020. In my opinion, it is one of the greatest trades in NFL history!”

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16 (DAY THREE): Features a highly contentious live main stage debate between policyholder attorney John Houghtaling and Dallas-based carrier attorney Steve Badger.

fraudulent 3rd party engineering companies used by carriers to deny claims, unconstitutional UPPA laws, tortious interference by carriers and their many agents who threaten to introduce other contractors to your projects if you do not accept their price, short pay games by carriers who make it near impossible to start or complete some necessary roofing or restoration projects after large storms and catastrophic events, systematic price fixing by insurance carriers, systematic practice of short pay, slow pay, and no pay by insurance carriers.
