Early Stage East Venture Capital

"As the founder and CEO of the Early Stage East Venture Capital Conference, one of the largest on the East Coast, I have had the opportunity to host several keynote speakers since its inception in 1998. Daymond John is clearly one of the best! Daymond has an innate ability and powerful presence that invites every attendee to turn off their cell phones, Blackberrys, iPhones and other devices because they don't want to miss a word. Each attendee feels Daymond is speaking to them one on one. He infuses lessons, humor, insight and experience into his keynotes unlike anyone else we have hosted. I strongly recommend Daymond when planning your next event. You won’t be sorry nor will your audience be disappointed."
