2022 Highlight: Real Leaders Magazine named Daymond John one of the Top 50 Keynote Speakers in the World 2022. After two of the craziest years in our country’s history, we wanted to pay tribute to the resilient men and women who gave us the assurance to keep going and provide a list of “real” teachers — people who speak from experience.”

Daymond's talk was inspiring and motivating for the social entrepreneurs participating in our business accelerator, as well as those watching and considering entrepreneurship as a means to address social determinants of health in their communities. He let people know that they can do well financially while also making a difference.

Daymond’s interactive presentation with pictures, music, and being able to connect with our audience in a genuine way was my favorite. It didn't feel fake or cheesy. He was able to command a room full of people with ease. I love that Daymond had a "set time" to take pictures and that gave folks almost an excuse to put down their phones for the rest of his session and solely focus on him.
