Speakers

When we sit down to select our speakers we have a few things in mind: are they going to inform, educate, surprise, amuse and entertain our attendees?

Will they change perspectives and alter opinions and, most importantly, bring about positive change and motivate our audience?

We hope that with the selections we make this year we’ll succeed with these goals. The full roster of our 2014 Speakers will be announced over the coming weeks.

See talks from our 2013 speakers here.
