The rapid adoption of information technology such as Blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data Analytics is reshaping every aspect of our economy, society, and technology. We have already witnessed an expansion of groundbreaking innovations, and yet we are at another technological frontier that’s guiding our society to a level of personal and professional transparency and accountability we have never witnessed.

About Keynote Speaker Todd Mitchem

It all began…

Todd Mitchem started out in life as a giant baby. No joke…at birth, Todd weighed 11.5lbs and was over 23″ long. Talk about being disruptive! It was no wonder that being on stage, leading, taking charge, and speaking was to be his focuses. He was a big presence from the beginning.

Early Years – Entertaining The Masses

Todd first launched his career in the performing world where he studied Meisner technique acting at the Baron Brown studio in Los Angeles as well as improv comedy at the famed Second City in Chicago. During this exciting time, the world saw Todd Mitchem perform in front of hundreds of thousands of people as a DJ, emcee, actor, comedian, television host and voice-over talent. His innovative style of combining comedy, dance music, theatrical dialogue, and audience participation left crowds fired up and begging for more.

His entertainment philosophy on interactive techniques to control crowds of all types and sizes opened the eyes of many major tour managers. In the late ’90s Mitchem opened as a warm-up act for various artists including N’Sync, Jimmy Buffet, Britney Spears, The Beach Boys, Journey, Brooks and Dunn, Ziggy Marley, Chaka Khan, and 38 Special. He has also entertained and motivated national corporate clients such as Coors Brewing, Seagrams, Prudential, Marriott Resorts & Hotels, and the American Cancer Society.

But he did not stop there. Todd also created an entertainment concept named, “Comedy You Can Dance To” which was featured at the famed Excalibur Nightclub in Chicago for over 20 years as well as Universal Studios in Orlando Florida.

Todd still combines music, comedy, and energy in every presentation he gives.

Business Leader and Speaker

To broaden his business horizons, Todd then joined the team at Eagle’s Flight, a leadership, culture change and business innovation consultancy. There Mitchem worked his way through the company to become a Senior VP, master facilitator, leadership developer, and business development expert. He and his team at Eagle’s Flight worked to create robust and efficient solutions for some of the most challenging leadership and organizational issues in many of the world’s fortune 500 organizations.

While at Eagle’s Flight, Mitchem generated over $20mil in revenue for the company, facilitated interactive, experiential programs for over two hundred thousand participants, and coached hundreds of client leaders in five countries.

To this day, Mitchem utilizes business leadership, and management skills learned over a decade of dedicated service.

Marijuana Industry

After his mother’s successful fight against a second cancer utilizing marijuana as a medicine, Todd was compelled to join the hyper fast-moving cannabis industry. His goal was to work with the largely renegade and outlaw organizations to raise standards and protect consumers. He leveraged all his previously learned skills in PR, speaking, leadership, and business operations to trail blaze for this new industry.

Successes include; 

  • O.penVAPE – Chief Revenue Officer and Head of PR where he achieved the status of the largest brand in the industry within one year and drove revenue to 1600% increase that same year.
  • Conference of Western Attorneys General – Todd was the first cannabis industry panelist and key speaker for discussion regarding raising standards and better business ethics in the cannabis industry
  • The Green Solution – Worked to successfully negotiate over $500mil in licensing and expansion deals around the state of Colorado.
  • Built the world’s first cannabis job fair, which saw over 3400 applicants from every corner of the world and secured over 1000 new jobs.

Tech CEO

While in the cannabis industry, Mitchem pivoted into the tech industry briefly when he took on the role as CEO for the world’s first social network in the marijuana space, High There. He lead the team to explosive growth of over 300k users in less than eleven months. Because of his success, the company and Todd were featured in every major news outlet in the world.

High There, as it was called, boasted over 1mil conversations a month with a massive daily active user rating. The app grew faster than Twitter in its first year. Todd learned some vital lessons along the way about how to connect with consumers on a truly unique level as well as how to leverage media for maximum advantage in the marketplace.

Author

In 2017 Todd Mitchem published a groundbreaking book outlining his life of positive disruptive behavior titled, YOU DISRUPTED, Seizing the life you want by shaking, breaking and challenging everything. (Prometheus/Random House) In the book, Todd teaches the reader to stop making excuses and start taking charge of the ONLY person they can control….themselves.

Now, as a top requested keynote speaker, as well as personal and business coach, Todd Mitchem is presenting a lifetime of wisdom to each audience and client he encounters.

Todd enjoys an abundant and peaceful life as he speaks around the world, coaches clients to success and works on his next book.

“What a ride life has been and continues to be! I have accomplished some amazing things, made a ton of mistakes, been up and down, but through it all, I learned, kept moving, and kept disrupting with a smile on my face. Someday when I am gone from this Earth I will go peacefully knowing that I gave it everything I had and soaked up every bit of joy I could.”

-Todd Mitchem
