Keynote: Avish Parashar
Weaving together humorous stories, jokes, audience interaction, and improv comedy, Avish will keep you engaged while imparting a key lesson: Planning is Important, but improvising is essential! No matter how well you plan, things will go wrong, surprises will arise, and the universe will throw you a curveball. Your success and sanity are directly related to how you respond to these challenges. By the end of Avish’s keynote, you will have the tools to flow with all that life throws at you.
