This Year's Featured Keynote Speakers

Erin Bury

Co-Founder & CEO - Willful 

How To Use An Entrepreneurial Mindset To Win

The mindset of an entrepreneur is a unique set of qualities that positions startups to be more resourceful, take more risks, and view their business and its marketing plan as a blank slate, not a set of established rules. In this session, Erin Bury will use her decade of experience working with high-profile startups to define the entrepreneurial mindset and show audiences how to implement that mindset within your own organization. The session draws on case studies of successful companies, including her own, who have leveraged the entrepreneurial mindset.

Jeremiah Brown

Make The Impossible Possible
Lessons From An Improbable Olympic Journey

Jeremiah won an Olympic silver medal as a member of the Canadian men’s eight rowing team at the London 2012 Olympic Games. A former commercial banker with a big dream, he is one of few Olympians ever to have started learning his sport only four years before winning a medal at the Olympics.

What does it take to adapt to change and achieve your biggest goal? In this keynote, you’ll experience a rollercoaster journey full of insights on working through uncertainty, forging self-leadership, defeating doubt, staying resilient, and building and inspiring team trust from one of the fastest Olympians ever to go from his parents’ couch to the Olympic podium.
