Highlights

"Center Stage!" Thursday Keynote

Alex Sheen is founder of "Because I said I would", a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity. Learn how "Because I said I would" encourages and supports making and keeping promises and how the organization has distributed over 3 million Promise Cards to help hold people accountable to their commitments.

Be Inspired by Ignite!

What is Ignite? The idea is simple. Ignite is an event of short talks, with a twist. The motto is “Enlighten us, but make it quick!” Speakers get just five minutes with 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds to make their point, enlighten and entertain. Ignite is a platform perfectly designed to feature professionals from a variety of personal and educational backgrounds interested in sharing their passion, their causes and their meaningful moments.
