KEYNOTE SPEAKERS


Vincent Pugilese

Author, Freelance Photographer, Photojournalist

Vincent Pugliese is, first and foremost a devoted husband to his wife, Elizabeth, and father of their three sons. Vincent is an author, photographer, and serial entrepreneur who coaches others towards a life of time, money and location freedom.

Vincent will be speaking on the power of building authentic relationships, and how this approach has opened up doors to opportunities, connections and experiences that would never have been possible otherwise. The presentation will focus on the stories and lessons he’s learned throughout his career, and how deepening personal relationships in an ever increasing digital world can be your secret weapon to business, career and life success.


Devin Bandison

Business Coach and Life Coach

You speak and I listen. Together we connect and create miracles in your life. When people decide to work with me miracles don’t just happen, they are created!

I see it happening every day. My clients create the life, career and freedom they once thought was unimaginable. There is nothing more fulfilling than the experience of being with another person in a created space of trust, commitment and vision. It allows for people like you to share your dreams. Our work is to make that dream a reality.
