Dr. Kevin Pho is a board-certified internal medicine physician and founder of KevinMD, social media’s leading physician voice. He has been named the web’s top social media influencer in health care and medicine.

Tuesday Morning Keynote: Laura Stack, MBA, CSP, CPAE
Funny, engaging, and full of real life strategies that work, Laura will change mindsets and attitudes so your team can maximize productivity, strengthen performance, and get the job done right. Her presentations help audiences improve output, increase speed in execution, and save time in the office. Laura is a high-energy, high-content speaker, who educates, entertains, and motivates professionals to deliver bottom-line results.
Look at your to-do list. It’s ridiculous. You can’t get all that done. As a skeptical audience member once told author Laura Stack before a presentation, “I don’t want to hear a productivity consultant telling me to do more with less. I want to do less and achieve more.” That’s exactly what Laura offers in this presentation.
Wednesday Morning Keynote: Brad Nieder
“The Healthy Humorist®”—Brad Nieder, MD, CSP*—is a doctor, funny speaker and clean comedian. He’s not just another mildly amusing corporate humorist. He’s really funny. Described as “Jerry Seinfeld with an ‘M.D.,’” Dr. Brad was infected with the comedy bug while watching Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show” monologues from the foot of his parents’ bed.
After completing his internship and getting his medical license, Dr. Brad realized there was a serious nationwide shortage of funny doctors. So he began his unconventional medical practice of delivering his unique brand of healthcare humor around the country to corporate audiences, convention crowds and conference attendees. Physicians, nurses, bankers, teachers—indeed people from all industries—have benefited from the doctor comedian’s medical humor.
