Opening General Session featuring Mary Matalin and James Carville
Sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch


Speakers: Mary Matalin and James Carville 

James Carville is the unbowed liberal and Mary Matalin is a celebrated conservative voice, former assistant to President George W. Bush and counselor to Vice President Dick Cheney.  Matalin and Carville are key players on the national political stage—they each have over 30 years of experience in politics and have individually worked for Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Matalin served as President George Bush's campaign manager in 1992, while her soon-to-be husband, Carville, was President Bill Clinton's campaign manager. Now they share their political opinions and affiliations—which haven't merged despite matrimony—with audiences everywhere and provide a stimulating, candid and provocative analysis of today's hot-button political issues from both sides of the political aisle.

They are the authors of two national best sellers, All's Fair: Love, War, and Running for President and Love and WarTwenty Years, Three Presidents, Two Daughters and One Louisiana Home (2014). In their second joint memoir, Carville and Matalin take a look at how they—and America—have changed in the last two decades. In their two distinct voices, they pick up their story from the end of the 1992 Presidential campaign to their new life in New Orleans today where their efforts to rebuild and promote that city have become a central part of their lives—and a poignant metaphor for moving the nation forward.

Closing Keynote featuring Johnny Cupcakes
Sponsored by Ten-X


Speaker: Johnny Earle Aka. Johnny Cupcakes 

How do you turn a t-shirt brand that’s sold from the trunk of a rusty car into a global multi-million dollar business?

Named America’s #1 young entrepreneur by BusinessWeek, profiled in The New York Times, NPR, MTV, Forbes, Newsweekmagazine and The Boston Globe, and featured in INC magazine as one of the world’s fastest growing independent businesses—there is only one man that knows the answer to that question—Johnny Earle, the founder of Johnny Cupcakes. At 19 Johnny had a passion for his one of a kind t-shirt business to go global so in a saturated marketplace, he needed a different recipe that would go viral! He created such a unique brand experience that consumers would (and do) line up around the block for. After 5 global store openings, he inspires fans to camp out for weeks ahead of time and high profile collaborations such as The Simpson's, Looney Tunes and Nickelodeon. Johnny is now sharing his secret recipe for viral business and marketing success through his high impact keynote speeches.
