As some of you may know, after our 2016 conference we conducted an attendee survey. 100% of respondents agreed that the CBT Conference & Expo more than exceeded their expectations. They also told us that our speakers had a lot to do with that. We were overjoyed to hear the positive feedback we received. Although top presenters, namely Coach Nick Saban and Marcus Lemonis were extremely valuable presentations, Jason Dorsey stole the show. His interpretation and vast knowledge of the millennial population was presented with enthusiasm and has become one of the hottest topics in the industry.
With this in mind when selecting our 2017 keynote speakers, we were on the hunt for fresh, progressive speakers who could bring a powerful and engaging but edgy presentation. About 2 months back I was presented with author and social superstar Jon Acuff. From our first impression, we all felt confident that he was a perfect addition to our next line-up and I know you all will feel the same.
With that, we are pleased to announce Jon Acuff as a keynote speaker at the 2017 CBT Automotive Conference & Expo. Jon is the New York Times Bestselling author of five books including his most recent, Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work and Never Get Stuck.
For 18 years Jon’s helped some of the biggest brands in the world tell their story, including The Home Depot, Bose, Staples, and the Dave Ramsey Team. Featured regularly on national media, Jon has been seen on CNN, Fox News, Good Day LA and several other key outlets. He’s also written for Time, the Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, Reader’s Digest, and MSNBC. In addition, Jon is also a big proponent of social media with blogs that have been read by 4 million people and more than 265,000 twitter followers. To learn more about Jon’s presentation please visit his speaker profile page.
I encourage you check-in with us regularly as we continue to unveil our 2017 CBT Conference & Expo speaker line-up. We will be collecting questions for our speaker Q&A sessions, conducting contests and continuing to provide the updates and training from the best in the industry.
