2019 Closing Keynote


Dr. Nick Hall, Noted Speaker & Team Building Leader

Nick Hall, Ph.D. is a medical scientist and professional speaker who has conducted groundbreaking studies linking the mind and body for over 20 years. This research has been published in over 150 periodicals and featured by the national and international media, including CBS' 60 Minutes, the BBC's Nova series, and the Emmy Award-winning program Healing and the Mind, aired by PBS. He also has been the recipient of two prestigious Research Scientist Development Awards, which the National Institutes of Health grants only to the top scientists in the United States.

Dr. Hall is also no stranger to the more pragmatic aspects of dealing with stress and with making difficult choices. After earning his way through college wrestling alligators and milking rattlesnakes, he worked as an intelligence-operative for the U.S. Government. He also led a National Geographic-sponsored expedition to the West Indies, where he studied mass-stranding behavior in whales. Most recently, he completed WaterTribe's Ultimate Florida Challenge in a sea-kayak. This 1,200 mile nautical race, which included a 40 mile portage, has been described by the Times of London as "the most dangerous small boat race in the world".
