Opening Keynote: Brad Meltzer

We’re very excited to announce that, thanks to the efforts of Title Sponsor Dove Men+Care, our opening keynote speaker is Brad Meltzer!

When it comes to the perfect voice to start off our fifth birthday, Brad is the ultimate literary polymath. Designated as one of The Hollywood Reporter’s Top 20 most powerful writers, Brad is the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of The Inner Circle, The Book of Fate, and eight other bestselling thrillers.

And apart from his hugely successful fiction, Brad is one of the only authors ever to place books on the bestseller list for nonfiction (History Decoded), advice (Heroes for My Son and Heroes for My Daughter), children’s books (I Am Amelia Earhart and I am Abraham Lincoln), and even comic books (Justice League of America)!

From the written page, Brad has branched out to visual medium as a TED speaker, host of Brad Meltzer’s Decoded on the History Channel, and Brad Meltzer’s Lost History on H2.

Since this year’s theme is “Building the Next Generation,” Brad will speak to us about the power of legacy, which begins with the care a dad shows his family and ripples outward among strangers to whom he’s only tangentially related. When a dad find his strength and learns about his inner hero, he makes the biggest impact on tomorrow’s fathers.

We’re very excited to have Brad open our conference, and we’re especially grateful to Dove Men+Care for making it happen!
