KEYNOTE SPEAKER:  BERT JACOBS

Chief Executive Optimist and Co-Founder – The Life is Good Company

“DO WHAT YOU LOVE, LOVE WHAT YOU DO”

Bert Jacobs launched the Life is Good apparel company with his brother John in 1994 with just $78 in their pockets. Today, Life is Good is a $100 million lifestyle brand sold in more than 4,500 retail stores worldwide. A believer in social responsibility, Bert made giving back to the community integral to the business’s mission – the company donates at least 10 percent of its annual net profits to the Life is Good Kids Foundation to improve the lives of children.  In his book, “Life is Good: The Book / How to Live with Purpose and Enjoy the Ride,” Bert shares insights on how he and his brother transformed a failing t-shirt startup into a multi-million company through the power of optimism.
