Palin Speaks to Audience of Over 3500 at Get Motivated Seminar in Beaumont TX

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on March 26, 2010

On Friday morning, Governor Palin was one of the featured speakers at a Get Motivated seminar in Beaumont, Texas.

Ashley Rodrigue from KFDM 6 reported early from the event:

Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin spoke to a large crowd Thursday morning at a motivational seminar at the Civic Center in downtown Beaumont.

Palin spoke to the crowd at about 8:40 a.m. KFDM anchor Ashley Rodrigue was in the Civic Center to cover the story. Ashley says Palin told the crowd that when faced with a challenge, “Don’t retreat-reload.”

Dr. Robert Schuller preceded Palin.

Among the featured speakers for the Get Motivated seminar are Palin, Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York City, and Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw. A spokesman for the seminar told KFDM News other featured speakers, including Zig Ziglar, Dr. Robert Schuller and Tamara Lowe, will also appear in person. Rick Belluzzo, former president and COO of Microsoft, will speak via satellite.

The seminar will last from 8 a.m. until about 5 p.m. Thursday.

According to the company’s website, the motivational seminar is designed to sharpen business and personal skills.

Shuttle buses will run from Jaguar Stadium to the Civic Center to help reduce traffic congestion.

Tickets were about $5 a person and $19 for an entire office if purchased prior to Thursday. Tickets at the door Thursday are $225 per person.

News 12 reported:

It was a day of excitement as a crowd of more than 3500 people filled the Beaumont Civic Center to hear from former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, football star and media mogul Terry Bradshaw and many others.

“I thought that it would be a good opportunity for myself and everyone in the office to come down and listen to what they had to say” said David Dugas, one of the attendees.

Dugas closed his business for the day at Southeast Texas Realtors just to hear what the seminar had to offer, especially from Sarah Palin.

“She basically said – keep the faith – you could tell she was a genuine person speaking from her heart” said Dugas.

Mike D. Smith at Beaumont Enterprise also reported:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin largely steered clear of any political discussions during her 20-minute speech at the Beaumont Civic Center. Her glancing mention of Sunday’s health care bill vote drew boos.

Palin drew on her experiences as a mother, governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate. She said she’s been successful with family support and by toughening up during the challenging times.

“Like my dad said, ‘You don’t retreat, you just reload,’” she said.

She and her husband, Todd, were quickly escorted out of the Civic Center to a vehicle waiting out back after her speech.
