Shelley Brown

 

Shelley’s colorful weird wit, her very own pop art, powerful stories from her life and 25+ year hospitality, travel, and events career have popped into hearts, tickled funny bones, and inspired audiences for the past 4 years. In addition to her role as a funny motivational speaker, Shelley teaches people her W.E.I.R.D process by sharing what she has learned about authenticity – to help you bring the colors back into your life, leadership, and teams in a way that can’t help but engage talent, drive bottom line results, and positively impact the customer experience! Sharing her powerful journey through relatable stories and teaching us all to be W.E.I.R.D. (Welcoming, Engaging, Integrating, Risk-taking, and Dynamic) you come to that magical place where your authenticity becomes your superpower and the key to belonging.

Cory Lee

After being diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at the age of two, Cory Lee’s thirst for adventure never ceased. He has traveled across all seven continents in his powered wheelchair while managing to run his travel blog CurbFreeWithCoryLee.com, where he shares his accessible — and sometimes not so accessible — travel adventures with others. He is a four-time Webby Award winner, has won two Lowell Thomas Awards for Best Travel Blog, and he has written for publications such as Condé Nast Traveler, National Geographic, and Lonely Planet. As always, his goal is to inspire other wheelchair users to roll out of their comfort zones and see all of the beauty our world has to offer.
