Lunch – Speaker – Amy Jo Martin, Author of the NY Times Bestselling book, “Renegades Write the Rules”

Amy Jo Martin is the founder of Digital Royalty and the woman who pioneered how professional sports integrate social media.  She has had more than 100 conversations with wildly successful and fascinating Renegades from Tony Robbins to Mark Cuban and beyond. She’s studied these individuals and spotted consistent themes and patterns they all have in common. Many of these people work at the intersection of technology and humanity. We are only bound by the speed of technology and there are no geographic barriers. The world of technology has created an equal opportunity space. The future of technology is the future of humanity. It takes a Renegade mentality to make sure humans are shaping technology vs. technology shaping us.
