Update: Eight-Time Olympic Medalist, Apolo Ohno, Will Kick-Off Conclave!

We’re pleased to announce an exciting change in the line-up at Conclave: eight-time Olympic medalist, Apolo Ohno, is our opening keynote! Henry Winkler is unable to join us, due to filming for his tv show, Barry. While we’ll miss Henry, we are thrilled that Apolo will kick things off on Sunday, September 12 as Conclave’s opening Keynote.

Reinvention is at the core of Apolo Anton Ohno. He acquired and honed this skill with over a decade of Olympic speed skating competitions, during which he became the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian of all time. Apolo continually adapts that performance mindset to support ongoing personal and professional growth.

He has drawn on this acumen to become a global cross-industry entrepreneur, a successful sports broadcaster and television personality, including winning season four of Dancing with the Stars. He’s a New York Times best-selling author and a lifelong scholar inside and outside the university setting.

Apolo has spent much of the past decade traveling the world and translating his successes and life lessons to business. The bulk of this time in Asia was spent immersed in the exploration of various business sectors ranging from rare earth mining and development to infrastructure and software. He also completed the eight-week Executive Education Curriculum at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, alongside executive-track businesspeople from some of the world’s top companies.

Harnessing these experiences, Apolo educates and inspires organizations on how to foster a sustained leadership mindset needed to overcome current business challenges.

Join us in the Lonestar Ballroom A and B and help us give Apolo a warm-hearted welcome as big as Texas!
