2022 Speakers

Our speakers included Jordan Belfort, Jesse Itzler, Immaculeé Ilibagiza, and LaQuita Cleare.

Jordan Belfort

In the 1990s, Jordan Belfort built one of the most dynamic and successful sales-organizations in Wall Street history. To this day, his proprietary sales-training techniques and daily motivational speeches are the ‘stuff of legend’— earning him a reputation as a ‘motivator without peer’. His two bestselling books have been published in twenty-two countries. His life-story has been turned into a major motion picture by Warner Brothers, with Leonardo DiCaprio playing the role of Belfort and directed by Martin Scorsese.


Jesse Itzler is the author of the New York Times bestseller, “Living with a Seal”; co-founder of Marquis Jet (the world’s largest private jet card company, which he and his partner sold to Berkshire Hathaway/NetJets); and an owner of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks.


LaQuita Cleare is an international speaker and renowned public speaking coach who has worked in more than 50 countries across four continents with Fortune 500 companies, public figures, politicians, and extensively with YPO, the leading organization for CEOs and Presidents whose companies make up 7 trillion dollars.


Immaculée Ilibagiza is a Rwandan American author and motivational speaker whose first book, “Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust,” is an autobiographical work detailing how she survived during the Rwandan genocide. She has been recognized and honored with numerous humanitarian awards, including the Mahatma Gandhi International Award for Reconciliation and Peace.
