2019 Keynote Speaker – Justin Kingsley

Sports marketing. Brand-building. Communications. Art. Inspiration. Justin Kingsley has done it all. A modern renaissance man, Justin is a New York Times bestselling author and the Creative Director of NHL superbrand the Montreal Canadiens. His kinetic, infectious talks reveal the motivation behind all the work he does and the source of his success: telling stories. From high-level keynotes on marketing and innovation to motivational speeches that are as powerful as they are intimate, Justin’s talks are always rooted in his message and way of life: find your story, and tell it to the world.
