Obesity in America – especially childhood obesity – poses a significant
threat to our national security, as well as the success, financial
livelihood, and survival of the next generation. 1/3 of all military

indicates that this generation of children will not live as long as
their parents due to premature diabetes, heart disease, and cirrhosis. Dr.

4. Author of the #1 Amazon bestselling book, Mailbox
Money, Chris Hotze, will present “Understanding the Power of
A recurring revenue relationship is the most fought over space in the
business world. Apple and Amazon want to host your files in the cloud.
Mercedes Benz and Lexus want to lease you a vehicle and give you
incentives to lease the next one. Businesses with recurring revenue are
valued much higher than those that don’t have a predictable revenue
stream. Likewise, on the personal investment front, having a recurring
revenue model will transform your life and provide you freedom like you
have never experienced. Hotze is the CEO and Founder of Crescere
Capital, a privately owned commercial real estate investment and
development firm with an opportunistic value-creation strategy within
the retail, industrial and commercial development sectors. Chris’s adept
investment strategies are focused on cycles and trends, monetizing
assets as certain cycles and trends mature while simultaneously shifting
into emerging opportunities.
5. Shoshi Kaganovsky, Entrepreneur, technology scout, proud
geek and innovation freak will present “Women Entrepreneurs – To Be

industry. An Israeli investor and serial entrepreneur, Shoshi has been
named one of the 20 most influential women in Israel and one of 70 most
brilliant innovators of all times in Israel history. Already a serial
entrepreneur in Israel, she moved the headquarters of SensoLeak to
Houston’s Energy Corridor to bring her disruptive new approach to
pipeline leak prevention and detection to the energy capital of the
world. Her company is proceeding to upend the way pipeline leak
prevention and detection are done, using the latest artificial
intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and the Internet of Things
(IoT). SensoLeak is currently being used for pipeline diagnostics in the
U.S., Canada, Japan, Western Europe, Russia, Middle-Asia, Australia,
Central-Asia, and Africa.
6. Darlene Gagnon will present “The Introverted Entrepreneur
Competing in an Extroverted World.”
Who is the best leader, an introvert or an extrovert? In today’s digital
age with celebrity entrepreneurship at an all-time high, it’s easy to
consider extroverts to be the most promising entrepreneurs and leaders.
However, current thinking suggests that introverts can be just as
competent as extroverts in leadership roles. Darlene will discuss the
aspects of how to succeed and thrive given this unique temperament and
how to lead from behind. This striking style puts the focus on
developing a team’s leadership and doing the strategic and critical
thinking required to compete and create sustainability in the future of
an entrepreneur’s business. Darlene is CEO and Founder of Kinetic
Promotional Product Services and We Kinnect Global Branding Agency and
an award-winning entrepreneur recognized by the National
Association of Women Business Owners and Enterprising
Women as a leading Inspirational Entrepreneur. Her companies have
won such awards as Best Places to Work and Largest Agency in their
respective cities in the U.S. and Canada.
Paul Sarvadi, CEO of Insperity will also speak about creating a market
segment that’s grown Insperity into a multi-billion dollar company.
