What do prolific skateboarder and entrepreneur Tony Hawk, retired general Colin Powell, futurist Ray Kurzweil and social activist Monica Lewinsky all have in common? Each one of these top conference speakers have been chosen to headline the 3rd annual eMerge Americas Conference and Expo in Miami next week!
From April 17-19th, the Miami Beach Convention Center will play host to eMerge Americas, a hybrid tech conference and expo that is expecting over 10,000 attendees this year. Those in attendance will be treated to a flurry of keynote sessions, networking events and a hands-on Startup Bootcamp. In addition, start-up pitch contests on Monday and Tuesday will allow future innovators to earn support and backing to help bring their product or service to life.
This year, event organizers have decided to place increased importance on their keynote speakers and the impact they can have on everyone in attendance. In years past, overlapping keynote sessions on different stages created competing content and forced attendees to make a choice. Next week, the keynote speaking sessions will all take place on the main stage in a systematic schedule that gives each speaker their own dedicated time with attendees.
The first of several top Conference Speakers on Monday will be Motivational Keynote Speaker Colin Powell, sharing his thoughts on effective leadership. Later in the day, AOL Co-Founder Steve Case will chime in to discuss the “third wave” of innovation, a period we have entered in which entrepreneurs are changing the way we live through innovation in major real world sectors. Legendary action sports star and Motivational Speaker Tony Hawk will close the day with a keynote discussion on allowing your passion to fuel success and the power of authenticity.
On Tuesday, popular Business Speaker, author and inventor Ray Kurzweil will share his thoughts on the future of science and technology innovation. Pitbull will also join MSNBC’s Fast Money host Melissa Lee for a moderated discussion on the changing worlds of music and media. In 2016, Monica Lewinsky has emerged as a leading social activist against cyberbullying. She delivered a riveting Ted Talk last March in which she advocated for a safer, more compassionate social media environment. At eMerge Americas, she will touch on cyberbullying and how we can grow as a society in our social media interactions.
The diverse group of top Conference Speakers appearing at eMerge Americas this year is a great example of just how many keynote speakers from different industries and backgrounds are available for hire for events in any industry. Leadership, innovation and creativity have no genre, and each speaker has their own unique story to tell that can motivate and inspire your audience.
