Filta Environmental Kitchen Solutions is pleased to announce that Vince Papale, the man who inspired the Disney movie Invincible, will be the keynote speaker for the 2018 franchise owner’s conference. Papale became a legend in the NFL after his incredible journey from school teacher to NFL player.
At the age of 30, Papale defied all odds by trying out for the Philadelphia Eagles during an unprecedented open try out held by, then, new head coach, Dick Vermeil—and made the team! In a matter of months, Papale went from being an Eagle’s fan who was down on his luck to a hero that inspired his team and the entire city of Philadelphia. The amazing story was destined to become a movie and did in 2006 with Hollywood superstar, Mark Wahlberg, playing Papale on the silver screen.
During the conference, the legendary Eagles player will be joined on stage by his wife Janet, who was also portrayed in the movie, and deliver a special keynote that centers around the theme of teamwork.
Filta’s 2018 conference will take place in Orlando, Florida, at the Crowne Plaza Inn & Suites near Universal Studios, February 16-18.
