In order to create additional value for video content, DIFRactive (DIFFER-active) Technology, a B2B SaaS provider, is developing an interactive video plug-in that allows viewers to bookmark products and information they are interested in learning more about. As a result, when viewers are watching a video, they will now be able to shop, see exclusive content, view character/actor information, listen to the soundtracks used, and much more, directly from the platform. With this software incorporated on a video platform, everyone wins. DIFRactive’s primary clients, content creators, are now able to better market their work to brands for financial support through product placement. Additionally, viewers get a richer, non-intrusive viewing experience, adding much more depth to their video, while brands receive metrics regarding the performance of their products within the video to better understand their return on investment (ROI) and create a new sales channel. https://www.difractive.com https://twitter.com/DIFRactive https://www.linkedin.com/company/18088379/

Hi! I’m Andrew, and I'm originally from Rolling Prairie, Indiana - a farm town of 500 people. I'm actually a CPA but left that behind to start my own business in 2015 as I saw a real need for people to meet and make genuine friends. I realized that it wasn't just me who didn't care to meet people at the bars, online or in other random places. FORGET using Bumble, Tinder, or Match to make friends! I want to meet people in real life. So I created an exclusive social club called New Town Connections and haven't looked back since. It's been life-changing not only to me but for many of our members. You can't put a price tag on what having a best friend is really worth. New Town Connections is the place where young professionals can establish long-lasting friendships centered around their common interests. By joining, our members gain insider access to hundreds of unique experiences across the Bay Area and create their own social network in real life. In addition to running New Town Connections, I just published my first book: "Friend Request Accepted - Connecting in a Disconnected World" to help people build genuine friendships in today's digital society. My friends call me #teamnosleep but I swear I really like to sleep! Sometimes I backpack around the world by myself, but I’m never really alone. I thrive on being around others and enjoy not spending time at home as I get my energy when I'm with people. Specialties include: master networking, introducing people, making friends, and running events. I have the energy of 5 people and I enjoy using it every day for the benefit of others. You can message me at andrew@newtownconnections.com or on my cell at 317-417-2973. I’m proud to be representing my home state and always more than happy to meet new people. If you know anyone who could utilize my company’s services, then send them my way! https://www.newtownconnections.com/ https://twitter.com/newtownconnect https://www.linkedin.com/company/new-town-connections/ https://www.amazon.com/Friend-Request-Accepted-Connecting-Disconnected/dp/0999248901

United States Magistrate Judge and Federal Bar Association’s Judicial Ambassador for Civics and former national president. The Honorable Michael J. Newman is a United States Magistrate Judge in the Southern District of Ohio, former national president of the Federal Bar Association and continues his FBA involvement as the Judicial Ambassador for Civics. The FBA has more than 20,000 members and is the pre-eminent bar association for lawyers and judges in the Federal Courts. For 2016-17, the FBA is focusing on Civics and Service to Others. To that end, Judge Newman is leading the FBA’s national initiatives regarding civics education, the SOLACE program, legal assistance to veterans, and access to justice. Judge Newman has a long history of community activities and giving back to others. In 2010, he was honored to receive the Boots Fisher Public Service Award, given annually to one lawyer in the United States for “exemplary community, public and charitable service.” Such involvement continues; in 2014, Judge Newman was instrumental in creating a lawyer referral program for military personnel at Wright Patterson Air Force Base - to assist them in finding affordable counsel. He now presides over the first Federal Veterans Court in the Southern District of Ohio and is an active participant in Reentry Court and the Restored Citizens Project, two Federal Court efforts in Dayton designed to help formerly incarcerated individuals successfully return to society. Prior to taking the bench, he was a partner in the Cincinnati office of Dinsmore Shohl LLP, where he represented both plaintiffs and defendants, and practiced in the areas of labor and employment, business litigation and appellate litigation. He chaired the firm’s Labor Employment Appellate Practice Group, created and ran the firm’s pro bono appellate program in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and served on the firm’s Diversity Committee. He was named a “Leading Lawyer,” an “Ohio Super Lawyer” and one of the “Best Lawyers in America in Labor Employment Law.” After being appointed as a federal judge, Judge Newman chaired the FBA’s national Magistrate Judge Task Force. He was recognized thereafter by the Federal Magistrate Judges Association for “valuable and dedicated service to all Magistrate Judges.” The FBA honored him in 2014 with a President’s Award for his “leadership [and] extraordinary service, commitment and guidance.” Judge Newman attended the Advanced Mediation Program at Harvard Law School and is frequently called upon to mediate complex federal disputes. He was a mediator and arbitrator while in private practice. Judge Newman graduated with honors from the Washington College of Law at American University, and attended New York University as an undergraduate. He and his wife, Rachel, are the proud parents of triplet daughters now in elementary school.

Today's talent is looking for more meaning, more flexibility, and more opportunity. I help organizations change how they think about talent strategy, and develop solutions to eliminate out-of-date practices. If you're struggling to attract great people, create an inspiring culture, or develop a strong leadership pipeline, we should talk. Talent strategy and organizational development consultant with expertise in the development of high performing culture through employee experience and customer focus. Bestselling author and keynote speaker on the evolution of work, and the power of diversity and flexibility as drivers of business results. About the Book Julie’s having a very bad day. She’s a new manager, and her top performer has resigned to escape her, and her own manager is looking on with a skeptical eye. This is the story of her turnaround. Being a first-time manager is a tough job. If you were Julie, what would you do? Wouldn’t anyone, given the choice of taking on a leadership role (with a raise), or staying put, have done the same? But no one prepared her for developing co-workers, her former peers, while producing as before and leading the team. Now she’s in over her head. Author Katy Tynan understands. In her new book, How Did I Not See This Coming? A Manager’s Guide to Avoiding Total Disaster, Tynan unlocks the truths about management, showing that first-time managers are basically on a journey without a map. It’s not that employers aren’t investing in their new managers, she says, or that the people in leadership don’t care, but they are no longer close to the raw experience of being a new manager. What’s more, most management books are written by experts who lack the memory of first-time failure. In How Did Not See This Coming?, Tynan tells the fictional story of Julie, a onetime star producer, to illustrate how a new manager can successfully make the shift from a role without leadership responsibilities to one with them. Along the way, Tynan offers the five basic truths about management—starting with recognizing team values and strengths—truths that can be learned by anyone. You, too, can be the manager everyone’s talking about—in a good way—because you’re the one who figured it out.

We followed up this success to create more than 25 licensed games and apps, including ER, Criminal Minds, Murder She Wrote, Ghost Whisperer, Sherlock Holmes, Twilight Zone, Tarzan, Psych, Crayola, among others. More recently, I have focused on opportunities in AR and computer vision, for industry, education, and entertainment. As President of HitPoint Studios, I direct business development and strategy.

Ryan Stewart is a serial entrepreneur and the inventor of ArtSplash By Mattel. Ryan has overcome many failures in business and inventing. He is best known as the winning inventor on the first season of ABC’s The Toy Box with his invention “ArtSpalsh”. About InventRight For the past 15 years, we’ve been helping inventors bring their ideas to market. We love teaching creative people how to profit from their ingenuity through licensing, including how to find companies that will want to license their ideas, how to protect their ownership of said ideas, and how to negotiate the best licensing deals possible. When you become our student, we coach you every step of the way. We partnered together to create a one-on-one coaching program because we firmly believe that inventors need to be in charge of their own destiny. We’re all about education, because our goal is to empower our students to continue licensing their invention ideas for years to come after they graduate from our coaching program. We are not middlemen, nor an invention submission company. The royalties you earn when you become our student stay 100 percent your own. The old ‘patent-and-prototype’ method is just that: Old. But even more importantly, it’s simply not effective — and frankly, it never has been. Our strategies are different. We want you to think strategically about intellectual property, not file patents out of fear. We want to prevent you from spending too much of your hard-earned money on a prototype upfront, before you’ve really tested the market. At every turn on your way to score a licensing deal, we show you how to reduce risk. https://www.linkedin.com/in/ryanmarkstewart/ http://www.inventright.com/ https://www.amazon.com/Mattel-Artsplash-Liquid-winning-invention/dp/B07238MRNX http://abc.go.com/shows/the-toy-box

Our Purpose Story Shares is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization devoted to inspiring reading practice and improving literacy skills. Our library is full of Relevant Reads—books that are both compelling and approachable for struggling teen and young adult readers. The Story Shares digital writing tool enables writers, educators, and students to create and publish Relevant Reads. These books cover a range of age, interest, and reading levels, and are also enhanced with features to make reading more accessible and fun. By leveraging the combined powers of great books and interactive web design, our literacy hub brings together a community to engage and support readers who struggle. The Problem The millions of readers who complete elementary school reading below grade level are unable to read about the characters and plots written for their age group. The stories they can read are meant for a less mature audience. At best, they hide this by reading only in private. At worst (and most often) they simply give up reading altogether. Given the daily importance of reading in all aspects of life, lacking this crucial skill negatively impacts everything from academic performance to everyday communication. As many as 90 million teens and adults in America lack crucial literacy skills1 70% of middle and high school students require some form of reading remediation2 26% of 12th graders graduate reading below the basic level.3 The older they get, the harder it becomes to find content that is both relevant for their age and readable at their level. Thus, readers are not motivated or interested, and they often stop reading altogether. Our Solution We help generate and then distribute new stories aimed at older students who read below grade level, specifically ensuring that the content is interesting at their age, and readable at their level. To do so, we are building the Story Shares Hub to bring together authors, readers, and educators. For authors, the Hub provides a digital book builder to guide the creation of just-right content, and access to a large group of potential readers. For readers and educators, the Hub provides a library of newly created just-right content, distributed on a platform with built-in reading assists to make it even more approachable. https://www.storyshares.org https://www.facebook.com/StoryShareLiteracy/ https://twitter.com/storyshares

Opuscope is developing Minsight: an app for creative users to design their own reality. With a headeset-first approach, our vision is to open the door for the proliferation of Virtual, Mixed and Augmented reality creations. I studied cognitive psychology with two main themes: usability and pedagogy. I early chose the usability part because I have always been curious and enthusiastic about new technologies, so when I learnt that psychology could match with them I knew this job was made for me. Concretely, I work on interfaces, whatever they are: website, software, video game, robot, VR/MR devices and much more without limit as long as there is an interface. This implies making sure they are easy to use, and fits their objectives and their target users. To do so, I: - evaluate existing interfaces to find ergonomics problems and suggest solutions to resolve them - design new interfaces from scratch to the point they are ready to be developed - make sure recommendations are well implemented by following development http://minsight.co https://www.linkedin.com/in/alexiabuclet https://twitter.com/getminsight

I never expected to launch a worldwide organization. Never ever thought I'd have to know about braille, or retinas, or genetic mutations. And I had no idea I would be dealt a double dose of darkness.... It was a one-two punch to the gut: both of my boys were diagnosed as blind when they were each 4 months old. I had never even met a blind person, yet I quickly learned how to find the tools blind children need and got them in the hands of my boys, literally. With the right foundation and a multitude of resources, they have become accomplished athletes, high achieving students, talented musicians, and social butterflies. Oh, and international Braille competition finalists too. In May 2011, I connected with other families living with the same rare disease my boys have, and launched a mission to fund a cure. No advanced degree. Never created a website before. Had no idea about grants, or IRB's... the list goes on. I learned how to build a team, nearby and remote, of people that know how to do the things I don't. I spend nearly every minute of every day networking with people that can help either medically, financially, or otherwise. No connection is too small, as I have found some of the greatest resources in the oddest places. In just six years, I've led our Foundation to make progress we thought would take much longer and people are calling on us daily to be a part of a miracle that seemed impossible less than a decade ago. We've raised over one million dollars, made history in the US Congress with the first ever rare eye disease resolution submitted in Braille, and have skyrocketed our little rare disease to the top of mind of many industry leaders - and I am just getting started. If you can help my mission to give options and resources to CRB1 LCA/RP patients, or if you need a dynamic speaker for your event, email me at curingretinalblindness@gmail.com or smedtalk@gmail.com http://kristinsmedley.com https://twitter.com/KristinSmedley https://www.facebook.com/thrivingblind/

Bank Labs is a combination of seasoned executives with deep expertise in community banking, bank technology and alternative finance techniques. We have been founders/leaders in banks ranging from $200 Million in assets to $1.5 Billion in assets in addition to leading multi-billion-dollar technology companies. Our principals are local business leaders, board members, founders and technology and real estate investors. We experienced first-hand how traditional community banking has evolved; clients now access accounts, apply for loans and pay bills via the Internet. True mobility tools to make bankers jobs more productive have not kept pace. Bank Labs mission is to change that. We create cloud-based solutions that target noisy, spreadsheet-based processes. Bank Labs helps community bankers become more efficient so that they can get back to banking, improve productivity, and allow more time to build relationships. This includes providing technology-based marketplaces to help our community bank clients gain access to new markets and defend against internet startups going direct to your clients. We hope to have the opportunity to visit and share what we are doing for the best community banks in the country. https://www.banklabs.com https://twitter.com/TheBankLabs https://www.linkedin.com/company/bank-labs

Increasingly, new employees and junior members of any profession are encouraged—sometimes stridently—to “find a mentor!” Four decades of research reveals that the effects of mentorship can be profound and enduring; strong mentoring relationships have the capacity to transform individuals and entire organizations. Organizations that retain and promote top talent—both female and male—are more likely to thrive. But the mentoring landscape is unequal. Evidence consistently shows that women face more barriers in securing mentorships than men, and when they do find a mentor, they may reap a narrower range of both career and psychological benefits. Athena Rising is a book for men about how to mentor women deliberately and effectively. It is a straightforward, no-nonsense manual for helping men of all institutions, organizations, and businesses to become excellent mentors to women. Co-authors W. Brad Johnson, PhD, and David Smith, PhD, draw from extensive research and years of experience as experts in mentoring relationships and gender workplace issues. When a man mentors a woman, they explain, the relationship is often complicated by conventional gender roles and at times hostile external perceptions. Traditional notions of mentoring are often modeled on male-to-male relationships—the sort that begin on the golf course, involve a nearly exclusive focus on career achievement, and include more than a few slaps on the back over drinks after work. But women often report a desire for mentoring that integrates career and family aspects of life. Women want a mentor who not only “gets” this, but truly honors it. Men need to fully appreciate just how crucial their support of promising junior women can be in helping them to persist, promote, and thrive in their vocations and organizations. As women succeed, lean in, and assume leading roles in any organization or work context, that culture will become more egalitarian, effective, and prone to retaining top talent. http://www.davidgsmithphd.com/thebook https://www.amazon.com/Athena-Rising-Should-Mentor-Women/dp/1629561517

I have been challenging the status quo for as long as I can remember. From being labeled a devil’s advocate in high school to a contrarian in college, I refuse to go with the flow or accept things as they are. Delving into and exploring what others take for granted, I thrive when creating innovative, logical, and elegant solutions. I consider myself a visionary. Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, it was only a matter of time before I started my own company. As a trained architect with over ten years of experience, I’ve worked internationally on projects in countries including Japan and France, as well as with Hillier, the award-winning firm in Princeton, New Jersey. I have also worked in the health care industry, housing, and urban design. As a teaching assistant at the University of Pennsylvania, I led seminars on planning urban infrastructure systems. While there, I noticed that available methods unnecessarily restricted users’ ability to gain knowledge to make better decisions—too much of the answer is already baked into the question, and there is little room for discovery. I envision a customizable planning solution that’s able to evaluate many infrastructure systems across geographic boundaries. At the same time, it must take spatial relationships into account, ultimately giving users across different disciplines the information and knowledge they need to make better decisions for themselves, their companies, and their clients. That is why I created Spatially, a tech startup that provides location-based services. As founder and CEO of Spatially, I oversee the company and ensure that it furthers my vision to be the leading geospatial analytics and solutions provider. I develop and implement overall growth strategies for the company, conduct research, and establish client relationships. https://www.spatially.com https://www.facebook.com/Spatially https://twitter.com/Think_Spatially
