About Speaker iO Wright…

A mentor by nature, iO Tillett Wright is a leading voice of a new generation. His work in art and activism led him to his speaking career on the back of the wildly successful We Are You campaign. With roots in the LGBTQ fight for equality, iO quickly revealed himself to be a powerful asset to inspiration and motivation to people from every walk of life. iO’s fundamental belief is that you will have the best results when you start to get real: with yourself, with others, and with your passions. Whether it’s your personal journey to fulfillment and happiness, or your career that needs some adjusting, iO approaches everything with humor, and irreverent real talk. Whether you’re a teen looking for guidance, or an adult who needs a reboot, you’ll be too busy laughing at his self-deprecating humor to realize your perspective has been shifted on the things that really matter and you’ll leave pumped up and excited to get moving on your dreams.

Why iO Wright?

iO uses humor and being laid back to make it easy to talk about difficult, vulnerable things. You’ll never feel judged for what you don’t know, only encouraged to learn more. But the best part is, you’ll be too busy laughing to notice you learned something.

iO’s TED talk has been viewed nearly 3 million times. He cohosted MTV’s Catfish and Suspect,  He was a featured contributor to T Magazine at The NY Times for two years, and his memoir was published by Ecco/Harper Collins in 2016. His photography has been exhibited internationally, and he is now taking on the Youtube short film genre.

He has been speaking professionally since 2013 at events, universities and companies around the world including Nike, Stanford, The Atlantic and Pure Romance.

Here are just a few of the comments we received:

    • “This by far was the most AMAZING class I could have ever asked for. iO is one of the most wonderful speakers I have EVER had the opportunity to hear speak! Thank you so much for bringing someone so utterly spectacular to speak with us on such a sensitive subject!”


    • “This was an incredibly meaningful class for me. Because I have never dealt with a lot of these issues personally, I struggled to connect with those who do. iO’s relatability is phenomenal and this class helped me to make a more personal connection.”


    • “iO was absolutely amazing! I truly appreciated his vulnerability in sharing his story and his open conversation approach to this topic vs. giving a speech or pushing a political agenda. It felt personal and encouraged a genuine desire to understand one another. It was an eye opening experience and I feel better prepared to educate and support my customers as a result. This was one of my favorite presentations. Thank you!”


    “iO’s keynote at our World Conference was nothing less than life-changing! He has made me look at people and life with a more open mind and heart! iO, thank you for changing my life along with so many others! You, sir, have a beautiful, amazing soul!”
