Steve Robinson 

Legendary Former Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) & Former Executive Vice President (EVP) of Chick-fil-A

Steve A. Robinson led Chick-fil-A’s global marketing efforts for three decades, overseeing a transition from a small chain of mall outposts to a booming nationwide fixture (and one of America’s most-loved brands). He takes audiences behind-the-scenes at Chick-fil-A, talking in great detail about how the organization weathered identity crises, carefully stewarded wildly-successful product launches and partnerships, flipped the script on industry standards in marketing and corporate culture, and created an ecosystem of happy employees, raving fans, and leaders who serve more than the bottom line.

Angie Bastian 

Founder of BoomChickaPop

Co-founder and namesake of Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP, Angie Bastian took a kernel of an idea and popped it into one of the most popular brands of natural popcorn. She founded the snack company out of her Minnesota garage in 2001, and it’s now one of the fastest-growing products in the market. Bastian talks honestly about what it takes to differentiate a product and make a powerful connection with the consumer. Speaking from experience, Bastian also talks about changes in the retail space, why authenticity matters, and how to weigh big marketing, sales, and branding decisions.

Alex Stamos 

Former Chief Security Officer of Facebook

Alex Stamos has one of the most-compelling and fascinating talks on cyber security on the circuit. Speaking completely from real-life experience (he also led security at Yahoo), he tells incredible, true stories that shed light on the real-world, bottom-line impact of cyber security and cyber warfare. Speaking to my team recently, he walked us through “kill chains,” adversaries, the role corporations now must play in this space, attack types, and actions to take to become more secure.

Bran Ferren 

Former President of R&D at Walt Disney Imagineering

Named one of the “100 Most Creative People in Business” by Fast Company, Bran Ferren is a designer and technologist working at the intersection of entertainment, product development, engineering, architecture, and the sciences. A TED speaker, Ferren was the first person to patent the “pinch-to-zoom” technology made famous by Apple. He helps groups answer questions like, “Why should we care about this new technology?” and “What are these things going to do that are going to make our lives more valuable, more interesting, and better?”

Pauline Brown 

Former Chairman of Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH)

Pauline Brown is the former Chairman of North America for luxury goods powerhouse, LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton) and a Harvard professor. She talks about the breakthrough strategies that build consumer demand and loyalty, the role great design plays in building a brand people can’t live without (think Apple), and explains why creating desirability should be a main focus in the age of Amazon—plus how to do it.
