Keynote Series

If you haven't peeked at our schedule lately, you're in for a real treat. We have three keynote addresses lined up that we're honored to announce.
First up, on Thursday right after lunch, stay in your seat to hear from three editors-in-chief: Pilar Guzman of Martha Stewart Living, Deborah Needleman of The Wall Street Journal Magazine, and Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan of Apartment Therapy. With a discussion moderated by Gabrielle Blair of Design Mom, Pilar, Deborah, and Maxwell will be sharing their insights on the relationship between traditional media and new media. Prepare yourself to be amazed. 
Secondly, on Friday get ready to learn how Pinterest became the next game changer by listening to the founder of everybody's favorite virtual pinboard, Ben Silbermann. Learn all about the successful venture from starting point to the future and leave inspired to go after that genius idea you've been meaning to try. 
To finish things off, don't miss our closing keynote presented by New York Times Bestseller, Gretchen Rubin. She'll share her fresh perspective on designing your life, the perfect conclusion to two full days of back-to-back stimulating panels. 
Wow! We're not sure we'll be able to sleep in anticipation.

Eden Hensley

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
