 KEYNOTE ADDRESS – Live In Vision, Not in Circumstance
Jon Dorenbos, Former NFL Pro Bowl player/ Entertainer / Magician / TV Personality

  • Jon Dorenbos played in the NFL for fourteen seasons, but many will know him from his magic performances on NBC’s hit television show America’s Got Talent. Through his amazing interactive magic, Jon emphasizes the importance of choice and openly shares his childhood tragedy. When he was twelve years old, Jon’s picture-perfect family was destroyed after his father murdered his mother. Jon chose to rise up through adversity, set goals – no matter how high – and plan and execute the necessary steps required to accomplish those goals. While performing the most remarkable magic, Jon inspires others by sharing his life experiences and NFL stories, including his recent open heart surgery, and also by discussing the importance of discipline, teamwork, perseverance, and the acceptance of failure in achieving goals. 

NCMEC Lab

  • The 10th Annual Bivona Child Abuse Summit is honored to host the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s (NCMEC) Child Victim Identification Program (CVIP) Lab, an initiative designed to assist law enforcement in its efforts to identify and rescue child sexual abuse victims.  Many children have been rescued from further sexual abuse because of a clue in the background of child pornography images, which led to the location of their abuse. Within this interactive lab, computers will be available for participants to access background identifiers and audio clues in hopes that these items may be recognizable or familiar to lab participants.  Accompanying each sanitized picture will be a real-time message thread where participants can post their comments and suggestions.  You may have the piece of the puzzle that could lead to the rescue of a child victim. 
    Note:  All registered Summit attendees are invited to participate in this Lab; however, due to the sensitivity of this issue, please make sure to wear your Summit badge and bring proof of identity to gain entry.
