Opening Keynote Speaker Alex Weber, Be Unstoppable 

Alex Weber is an International Keynote Speaker on Leadership and Peak Performance, a competitor on American Ninja Warrior, and an Award-Winning Entertainer for NBC. He is also an acclaimed author, world record holder, and one of the youngest coaches ever to win US Lacrosse Coach of the Year Honors.

But Alex also knows what it feels like to hit challenges, self-doubt, pressures, uncertainty, and failures - and how you can overcome them! Alex's genuine understanding of leadership, peak performance and peak challenges, mixed with entertaining stories and actionable strategies will leave a lasting impact. With his contagious energy, positive passion, and uplifting humor, Alex shares his game-changing secrets to record-breaking success. He’s a human shot of espresso that will get the conference buzzing from the very beginning! 

What would you do if you were UNSTOPPABLE? What could you lead? Who might you become? What could you achieve? Everyone hits setbacks, fears, and failing - but not everyone knows how to overcome their challenges with a reliable and consistent system. So most people hesitate, delay, or stop altogether. And with it, they lose valuable time, energy, resources, and even give up on their goals. Not on Alex Weber’s watch!

Alex knows both sides. As an American Ninja Warrior, Award-Winning Host for NBC, acclaimed Author, and US Lacrosse Coach of the Year, Alex has reached record-breaking achievements as a Leader and Peak Performer. But with these accomplishments, he's also had to face intense pressure, hard failures, and his own limitations. It is this sincere knowledge of both sides of achieving that makes Alex one of the most impactful keynote speakers today.

Alex cultivated his system through one of the most intense and rigorous environments in the world as both an award winning host and elite competitor for NBC’s Emmy-nominated American Ninja Warrior. Based off Alex’s debut book, Alex gives you his system to become UNSTOPPABLE. For yourself, and the people who need you. When most people stop, you will keep going, growing, and getting better so you accomplish your goals that matter most. This is how you win in your work, your relationships, and in your life!

 

Closing Keynote Speaker Caleb Campbell, Creating More Capacity & Enhancing Well-Being 

As leaders are facing increasing demands and fewer resources, crisis is inevitable—one not just of performance and productivity but also of the heart. As a result, leaders everywhere are finding themselves the type of tired that more sleep doesn’t solve. It’s in this landscape of emotional and professional turmoil that Caleb Campbell’s mission takes center stage, helping his audience to unlock the courage and authenticity needed to thrive through these challenging times.

Through masterful storytelling and drawing on awe-inspiring stories from personal experiences, Caleb blends compassion, emotional intelligence, authentic storytelling and practical wisdom to provide a clear and compelling roadmap for a new way forward. Caleb's journey—from being the first West Point football player to be drafted into the NFL while serving in the Army, to overcoming policy changes and returning to active duty, to eventually realizing his NFL dream—demonstrates how facing fears, embracing change, and staying authentic can make us stronger, even in our weakest moments.

Far from offering clichéd "do better, be better" advice, Caleb skillfully guides his audience through discussions on courage, emotional intelligence, and heart-centered leadership. His unique approach enables high-velocity decision-making, increased capacity for performance, and practical tools for creating a psychologically safe culture that fosters greater well-being.

Caleb's keynote offers a refreshing new perspective on leadership, guiding you to harness your own inner strength and redefine what it means to be a leader in today’s world. You'll walk away with actionable tools and insights that empower you to lead with courage, purpose, and an open heart.
