Kat Cole, COO/president of FOCUS Brands North America, is a dynamic leader who is highly connected to communities through social media, is very active in advising and investing in start-ups, and is an avid humanitarian in some of the poorest areas of the world. Prior to assuming her current role, she served as president of Cinnabon, Inc. for four years, leading the brand in surpassing $1 billion in annual branded product sales globally. Using her personal story, business approach and unique perspective, Cole will provide attendees insight on business leadership, business model innovation and brand building; she also will share her expertise on creating an environment that promotes a servant-leader mindset and ensures employees love what they do and drive strong financial results.  

As University of Texas System Chancellor, William H. McRaven, a retired U.S. Navy four-star admiral, leads one of the nation’s largest and most respected systems of higher education. Prior to becoming chancellor, he was the commander of U.S. Special Operations Command during which time he led a force of 69,000 men and women and was responsible for conducting counter-terrorism operations worldwide. McRaven’s latest book, “Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life...and Maybe the World,” reveals the ten fundamental life lessons he learned in Navy Seal training. During his address at the conference, he will share insight into facing and overcoming challenges in life, business, and ultimately, the world.
