Meet Our Keynote Speakers

Morning Keynote:
“Who Cares? The Quest for Kindness in Leadership”
Lisa Goich

Lisa Goich is an award-winning author and copywriter, blogger, journalist, former stand-up comedian and talk radio host. She can be heard weekly with new multi-New York Times best-selling author Mitch Album on his podcast Tuesday People.

Afternoon Keynote:
“Digital Everything: Forever and All to See”
Catherine Bosley

Catherine Bosley is an award-winning, veteran journalist with powerful and thought-provoking messages to share. With loads of relatability and plenty of levity, she explores how, in this day of digital EVERYTHING, every choice we make has unprecedented potential to determine the trajectory of our lives. That’s because so little of what we do is guaranteed to stay “in the moment,” but instead, could end up splattered all over “cyberspace,” permanently.
