July 27, 2021 - July 29, 2021

We were virtual again in 2021

As we navigated the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout 2021, the health and safety of our customers, partners, and associates remained a top priority. It was also critically important that we took into consideration the importance of your role as an essential healthcare provider in your communities. As providers of critical care and with vaccine access continuing to broaden, we knew you needed to be in your pharmacies supporting your patients, so we made the decision to host ThoughtSpot 2021 virtually and worked hard to make it an even more rewarding experience than the previous year's virtual event.
 

Headline entertainment

Sheryl Crow

Nine-time GRAMMY AWARD recipient

 

After such a challenging year, we knew our members and partners could use a little sunshine through their speakers, so we were thrilled to have Sheryl Crow perform at ThoughtSpot Live 2021! An American music icon, her first nine studio albums have sold 35 million copies worldwide; seven of them charted in the Top 10 and five were certified for Multi-Platinum sales. In addition to such No. 1 hits as “All I Wanna Do,” “Soak Up the Sun” and “The First Cut Is the Deepest,” Crow has lofted 40 singles into the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Top 40, Adult Contemporary, Mainstream Top 40 and Hot Country Songs charts, with more No. 1 singles in the Triple A listings than any other female artist.

For her current album “Threads”, Crow collaborated with a broad array of her musical heroes, including Stevie Nicks, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Chuck D, Joe Walsh, Kris Kristoffersson, and even a duet of her classic song “Redemption Day” with the late legend Johnny Cash. “Threads” also features contributions by young artists shaping music today, including Gary Clark Jr, Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Andra Day, St. Vincent, and Maren Morris.

 

Featured speakers

Travis Mills

Travis Mills

Retired United States Army Staff Sergeant

Travis Mills

Travis Mills is a recalibrated warrior, motivational speaker, actor, author, and advocate for veterans and amputees. Despite losing portions of both arms and legs from an IED while on active duty in Afghanistan, Travis continues to overcome the challenges life throws his way, breaking physical barriers and defying the odds.

As a result of his traumatic injury, Travis was suddenly forced to reconcile the fact that without arms or legs, his future would look drastically different from the one he had imagined for himself. He would never again be able to lead his squad, hold his wife’s hand, or pick up his newborn daughter. But he doesn’t want to be thought of as wounded. Instead, through his motivational speaking, Travis inspires audiences to “Never give up. Never quit.” No matter the obstacles or circumstances they may face.

The Travis Mills Foundation supports recalibrated veterans and their families through long-term programs that help these heroic men and women overcome physical obstacles, strengthen their families, and provide well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Travis’s New York Times bestselling memoir, Tough as They Come, tells his story as one of just five warriors wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive quadruple amputee injuries.
