Keynote Speakers

The Future of Healthcare: Technology and Innovation
Nicholas Webb
Award Winning Inventor, Bestselling Author, Adjunct Professor and Chief Innovation Officer at Western University of Health Sciences, and CEO of LeaderLogic, LLC.

As the CEO at LeaderLogic, LLC, an innovation and technology firm, Nicholas works with Fortune 500 companies throughout the world to help them lead their industries in Innovation, Strategy and Customer Experience (CX) Design. He has been awarded over 43 patents by the US Patent and Trademark Office for breakthrough technologies that include one of the world's smallest medical implants to a wide range of industrial and consumer products. His background and training as a technologist gives him unique insight into the world of medical imaging.
Nicholas is one of the top healthcare futurists and speaks to audiences across the entire healthcare ecosystem. In his presentation, Nicholas addresses how healthcare will be massively impacted by enabling technologies leveraging everything from artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, augmented reality, and anticipatory wearable technologies, just to name a few. Patients view healthcare as a consumer product, yet many organizations are not delivering on this fundamental expectation. Nicholas explains how the best healthcare brands, hospitals, and clinics are leveraging the power of Patient Experience Design (PXD) to drive sustainable growth, profit, and patient satisfaction. Nicholas is passionate about the future of innovation and energizes his audiences with actionable insights on how to build a “future ready” organization. His just released book, "The Innovation Mandate", has become number one on the best-selling list.

5 Steps to Making the Impossible Possible
Ben Nemtin
New York Times #1 Bestselling Author of What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? and a star of the MTV show The Buried Life.

As the co-founder of The Buried Life movement, Ben’s message of radical possibility has been featured by major media outlets including The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, Inc., ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC News. Ben weaves the remarkable story of how The Buried Life grew from 100 impossible dreams into a global movement and connects his lessons to the fabric of our daily lives.
Ben’s message of radical possibility combined with his ‘5 Steps to Make the Impossible Possible’ leaves audiences not only inspired but also equipped with tools to tackle the seemingly insurmountable. He shares his system of achieving impossible goals and demystifies daunting tasks by turning ‘dreams’ into ‘projects’ and creates inspiration through action and accountability. Ben reminds us that it’s never too late to start a list and leave a lasting impact on the world. He addresses why an organization can only become the-best-version-of-itself to the extent that its employees are becoming better-versions-of-themselves proving that how caring enough to ask yourself and others what matters most goes a long way, and it’s easier than you think. Ben brings home the importance of pursuing a bucket list, not only for your own wellbeing, but also for your career and for those around you. He facilitates goal sharing and inspires people into action through masterful storytelling and by implementing tiers of accountability to drive them toward their goals. When you’re pursuing the things that are truly important to you, you’re more alive in every way and you bring that energy to everything you do, especially patient care.
