Dynamic Lineup of Keynote Speakers for NPMA PestWorld 2023

Fairfax, VA – May 19, 2023 – The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) announced today two keynote speakers that will be featured during the General Sessions of PestWorld 2023, taking place October 17 to 20 in Honolulu, HI. PestWorld 2023 brings individuals from every facet of pest management together to share tactical knowledge, hear different perspectives on business trends, learn from the latest technical research, and form strong relationships.


Starting the program off on Wednesday, October 18 is changemaker, best-selling author, and thought leader, Sebastian Terry.  Affected by the death of a close friend, Sebastian Terry had a moment of deep reflection and realized that he was leading a life devoid of passion. In a moment of darkness he created a list of 100 things that he hoped would bring him closer to a sense of happiness, if not purpose. Dropping everything in his life to pursue each of his 100 goals, Sebastian’s journey has been turned into a best-selling book, a reality TV show, and a platform that inspires people to not only start their own list but support others along the way.


The Thursday, October 19 General Session features Lieutenant Colonel Jason Harris, a best-selling author, expert thought leader, and professional pilot. He has served continuously on active duty and is currently a Squadron Commander in the Air Force Reserve Command. His high-risk combat experiences have all served as the launching point for his proprietary “No Fail Trust™” methodology. This methodology serves organizations and teams as a tool to empower executives and team members to foster an environment of mutual trust, responsibility, and productivity.


Registration for PestWorld 2023 is now open at www.pestworld2023.org. Members of the pest management community will not want to miss these engaging and inspiring keynote speakers along with ample opportunity to meet with thousands of pest management professionals and suppliers from across the globe.  Attendees are bound to leave PestWorld armed with the latest information and valuable solutions that will drive them to success in the years ahead.
