Special guest

David Meltzer

David Meltzer is a value-based speaker whose combination of inspiration, energy, and pragmatism has led to recognition by outlets such as Forbes and Entrepreneur as well as a starring role in WGN's World's Greatest Motivators.

In his early 20s, David Meltzer quickly rose to the top of his game in the business world, becoming a millionaire. David lectured around the globe and saw rapid success in every business project he touched. But something was missing, and in his 30s as a multimillionaire, he went on a rapid downward spiral that ended in bankruptcy. It was only then that David realized, in order to revive and thrive, he needed to codify what had made him successful in the first place. He has since emerged to realize even more rewarding heights of success in business and life.

David Meltzer has created a platform that uses four overarching principles—gratitude, empathy, accountability, and effective communication—and these principles have allowed him to communicate and mentor everyone from college students to c-suite executives. These four principles in everyday practice allow David to live by his mission to “make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun.”

He was named a Top 100 Business Coach by Marshall Goldsmith and regularly speaks at the world's biggest business, sports, technology, and motivational events.
