Kevin O’Leary to Discuss Lessons from a Dragon at MODEX

Kevin O’Leary is the keynote speaker at MODEX 2016 on April 6 in Atlanta. Kevin is an entrepreneur, investor and Shark Tank’s Mr. Wonderful.

Frank and opinionated, speaker Kevin O’Leary is one of North America’s leading business moguls. On Shark Tank, he invests in entrepreneurs who have potential, while dutifully deflating those who don’t. Now he brings that cutting insight to CTV and BNN. With the same candor, his keynotes help you make sense of the day’s financial rumblings—connecting them, entertainingly of course, to your industry.

O’Leary’s track record in business gives him the force of authority. In 1993, with no money, he launched The Learning Company, which developed software that helped kids with reading and math. Six years later, he sold it to Mattel for 3.7 billion dollars, one of the largest tech deals in Canadian history.

As an “Eco-preneur,” O’Leary specializes in investments that make money—and are environmentally friendly. In 2003, he co-founded Storage Now, Canada’s leading developer of climate controlled storage facilities; in 2007, it was acquired by In Storage REIT, for $110 million dollars. He is also the co-host for Discovery Channel’s Discovery Project Earth, which explores ways we can reverse global warming. He is the author of bestselling books Cold Hard Truth: On Business, Money & Life, Cold Hard Truth About Men, Women & Money, and Cold Hard Truth on Family, Kids & Money.

During this keynote O’Leary reveals the secrets that made him rich and shares his personal advice. He will take you on a behind the scenes look at his two hit shows, Dragons’ Den & Shark Tank. O’Leary will share entertaining and insightful outtakes from his TV shows and provide a current economic overview and how it relates to the manufacturing and supply chain industry. He will share his insights into how the industry is performing, where the innovation is coming from, how to grow your business and more.
