We are fast approaching Unleash ‘19. Like warp speed fast.

And I, for one, am getting pretty antsy in my pantsy to get down to sunny San Diego and mingle with nearly 1,000 revenue-generating royals from some of the world's most innovative and fastest-growing companies.

Can you believe we’re less than 2 months away?

To celebrate the dwindling amount of sleeps until THE Sales Engagement Conference of the year, we want to announce this year’s keynote speakers!

They are…

The Second City

That’s right—the most influential and prolific comedy empire will grace the Unleash stage to bring the funny, and get you fired up and ready to achieve peak excellence.

You may be wondering why an improv troupe would be on the main stage at Unleash. It’s cool—I’ve prepared a response:

Because they’re amazing, that’s why!

But seriously, The Second City is more than just a feeder school for Saturday Night Live (no joke—Chris Farley, Tina Fey, Bill Murray, Mike Myers, and more started out on The Second City stage). The performers use the improv methods they pioneered to help people and companies improve their performance. They’re going to inspire and teach you to communicate, collaborate, and innovate—all while building comfort with risk and change.

Next up…

Wim Hof

No—I’m not missing any letters there. Wim Hof is really his name, and he is a real-life superhuman. His nickname is The Iceman (not that Iceman—that was last year’s theme).

Hof has broken more records related to cold exposure than a Yeti. His feats include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle barefoot, and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for nearly two hours.

He is convinced that everyone can tap into this potential without having to invest the same decades worth of study, travel and daring that he has.

Hof is going to teach you how to unleash your inner strength and reach an optimal state of body and mind.

But wait, there’s more...
