One of the most important things to make time for at Domopalooza is the opening keynote, where you can hear best practices from business, sports, and marketing leaders across industries. They bring inspiration, education, and expertise to the main stage. Here are three Domopalooza 2018 keynote speakers that we can’t wait to hear from.

He went on to become EVP at Def Jam recordings from 2005-2008, working alongside CEO Jay Z.

He currently serves as Secretary of the Board for the Clara Lionel Foundation, Rihanna’s philanthropic endeavor to improve quality of life for impoverished communities around the globe.
If you’re a basketball fan, you are almost certainly familiar with Phil Jackson, the most-winning coach in NBA history-he holds the record of a combined 11 NBA championship titles. He also won two championships as a player for the New York Knicks. Jackson was inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame in 2007. He’s authored several books on leadership lessons and basketball strategies, including Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success with Hugh Delehanty and The Last Season: A Team In Search of Its Soul.
