Keynote Speaker: Justin Kingsley, Best Selling Author + Creative Strategist
What makes some businesses stand out from their competitors? What makes some people more successful than others? Is it product? Is it price? Work ethic? Perhaps. But with all of that, how can you really stand out, as a brand and as an individual? You need to find your hook. In this dynamic keynote Justin dives deep in helping participants find their hook. It's engaging, interactive, and extremely informative. Sometimes your hook has been in front of you all along. Justin helps you find it, reclaim it and own it.
