We are excited to present our keynote speaker... Billy the Coach!

Achieve higher levels of healthy living, mindfulness, mental performance, imagination, and innovation with Billy the Coach's Engines of Excellence!

A recent study by Northwestern University found a dramatic increase in “functional capacity” among those choosing a healthier lifestyle. As an Executive Health & Performance Coach, Billy knows that for many hardworking individuals, there’s a gap between how well they take care of their careers and how well they take care of their physical and mental health. Closing this gap is what “Billy the Coach” does best.

Billy’s core philosophy of energetic wellness is this: What will you choose next? To put in your mouth, to do with your body, to think about, to do with your career? Your success is built step by step, choice by choice, in every area of your life.
