Industry/Trade Shows : Favorite Keynote Presenters?

Reminiscing on in-person trade shows and hopeful to their eventual return, I was thinking about all the various Keynote Presenters I've heard over the years and trying to pick some favorites. Top three for me would be:


1) Frank Abignale (see: Catch Me If You Can). Real guy who the book and movie were based on. Absolutely fascinating story!

2) Eric O'Neil (see: Breech). He's the FBI agent who exposed Robert Hannsen, the cover Soviet Spy in the FBI. Intense, 1st hand accounts.

3) Maj. Dan Rooney. Current F-16 instructor as well as PGA golfer and president of Folds of Honor. Just an incredible American with lots of great stories, a great message and extremely worthy cause.


Any favorites from the War Room? Any that prompted you to check out more of their stuff; books, organizations, etc? Any that really moved you and/or prompted you to action?

I saw Obama. Politics aside, he is a captivating speaker. Ellen Ochoa (first hispanic woman in space) was also really cool.ย 

I have seen Frank too, dude is a walking legend. If I had to pick two people to bring to a sales call, it would be JB and Frank.

I can only assume JB stands for Jim Beam.ย

Well if Belfort and Frank are running my cycle I would be totally content to sit in the back with a Jim & Coke

Yep. Here is Frank giving basically the same Keynote that he gave us, for Google in 2017. You can tell he's given this presentation probably 1000 times. Memorized and almost methodical in delivery. But damn...what a great story!
