Debra Benton , the event's keynote, is a best leadership practices speaker and executive coach.  Benton's focus is to "help you work differently and be different at work; to take you from promise to prominence."

Her expertise has given her front-page coverage in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and made her a welcome guest on the Today Show, Good Morning America, and interviewed by Diane Sawyer on CBS. Conde Nast Portfolio magazine described Benton as one of the "top five coaches to have on speed dial".
