Luncheon Speaker

BenNemtin

Ben Nemtin
A member of MTV's Hit Show, The Buried Life, a New York Times bestselling author, and was recently named one of the 2019 World's Top 30 Organizational Culture Professionals by Global Gurus 

Ben is on a mission to achieve the unthinkable. From playing basketball with President Obama to streaking a soccer field, from raising over $400,000 for charity to placing a record-breaking $250,000 bet on roulette — his bucket-list quest has inspired millions to strive for greatness. Ben weaves the compelling story of how The Buried Life started with 100 impossible dreams scribbled on a piece of paper and grew into a global movement of millions. He skillfully connects his story to the fabric of our daily lives. Ben’s message of radical possibility combined with his ‘5 Steps to Making the Impossible Possible’ will leave you not only inspired but also equipped to tackle the seemingly insurmountable. Ben’s system of achieving any impossible goal demystifies daunting tasks and turns ‘dreams’ into ‘projects’ by creating a digestible pathway to success.

Keynote Speaker

JoshLinknerCroped

Josh Linkner
A world-renowned innovation expert, 5-time tech entrepreneur, and New York Times bestselling author

As a five-time successful tech entrepreneur and investor in dozens of startups, Josh has seen thousands of companies loaded with creative buzz and big ideas. How is it that some harness their imagination to create game-changing drivers of growth and innovation while others miss the mark? The answer: the best companies have a systematic process to focus their team’s creativity into practical outputs – something Josh discovered by founding and building companies that collectively sold for over $200 million. As a professional jazz guitarist, Josh blends the improvisational qualities of a jazz ensemble with bleeding-edge business savvy to bring a completely fresh perspective on unleashing creativity in the organization. His inspiring presentation delivers practical tools that can be used immediately to increase creative output and deliver bottom-line results.
