Top Keynote Speaker: Gabe Zichermann


Empowering your group to create value, take smart risks and leverage advanced technologies.

Every attendee has their own professional challenges. Due to the rapid pace of change in technology, culture and the nature of work, organizations and individuals need to be adaptable, open and innovative. To accomplish this, they must be willing to take risks and fail.

Drawing on my experience as an entrepreneur, innovator and educator, each of my keynotes is bespoke, focused, fun and highly effective. Weaving together real-world examples, digestible schema and powerful anecdotes, attendees leave my talks feeling energized, knowledgeable and ready to take on the challenges they face.

Together, attendees will create the future they imagine - one inspiring, actionable keynote at a time.
