Keynote Speakers

Frans Johansson
An author, entrepreneur, and consultant, Frans Johansson has spoken to audiences worldwide, from the boardrooms of large corporations to villages in developing countries. His debut book, "The Medici Effect", shattered assumptions about how great ideas happen. His latest book, "The Click Moment", obliterates the idea that in business you can strategize, plan, and analyze your way to success. Born and raised in Sweden, Frans has founded a software startup, a healthcare firm, and a hedge fund. He is the founder and CEO of The Medici Group. Frans holds a B.S. from Brown University and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.

Bruce Tulgan
Bruce Tulgan is internationally recognized as a leading expert on managing the generation mix in the workplace, leadership and management. Bruce is a best-selling author, an adviser to business leaders all over the world, and a sought-after keynote speaker and management trainer. Since 1995, Bruce has worked with tens of thousands of leaders and managers in hundreds of organizations ranging from Aetna to Wal-Mart; from the Army to the YMCA. In recent years, Bruce was named by Management Today as one of the few contemporary figures to stand out as a "management guru" and he was named to the 2009 Thinkers 50 rising star list.
