Tuohys keynote opening session
Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy’s life, as chronicled in New York Times number-one bestseller, "The Blind Side," went on to become a record-breaking Hollywood blockbuster that earned more than US$300 million at the box office and became the number-one opening weekend for a sports film in history.
"The Blind Side" tells the story of Michael Oher, a homeless teenager turned first round draft pick NFL football player, with the support and love of an unlikely adoptive family: Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy.
At the podium, Sean and Leigh Anne share their personal Blind Side observations from the perspective of dedicated parents. The couple invites audiences to go behind-the-scenes of the Tuohy household with a heartwarming message: "In our house, we believe in miracles."
The couple will be the keynote speakers during the opening session in New Orleans.
