|Fred Jacobs is President of Jacobs Media, a company he founded 35 years ago. He began his career as the Director of Research for the radio and publishing divisions of the Frank N. Magid Research Company, one of the nation’s leading media research firms. From there, Fred served as Program Director of WRIF/Detroit, and also served as Director of Research for the ABC Owned FM Stations. Fred earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan, and a Master’s from Michigan State University. He also taught radio broadcasting at Michigan State before joining Frank N. Magid Associates, one of the nation’s leading media research firms, rising to the position of Director of Research for the Radio and Publishing divisions.|
|David Phillips is President and COO of NLogic. NLogic is privileged to work with Canada’s largest broadcasters, media agencies and advertisers, helping them turn data into action through software and insights. David has a master’s degree in modern European culture, something which has never been useful since.
His obsessions include politics, history, running, music and clouds and he is blessed with a wonderful wife and two beautiful sons.
Jay Rosenthal has a 20-year career at the intersection of media, business, politics, and policy — especially as it relates to heavily regulated industries. The Co-Founder and President of Business of Cannabis, Canada’s authoritative source for news and analysis of the cannabis industry, Rosenthal provides context and insight into the dynamic and ever-changing landscape of the Canadian cannabis sector.
In his information-packed talks, Rosenthal explains key differentiators between how Canada and the United States are regulating cannabis; the promise of medicinal cannabis; and what the future has in store for Canada as a world leader in the cannabis industry. He also looks at the impact that cannabis may have on workplaces, and the burgeoning cannabis market as it pertains to entrepreneurs, technology, finance, and trade.
Join master motivator Stephanie Staples for this fast-paced, interactive and idea-packed session that will have you laughing, thinking and inspired to take immediate action that will positively impact your life and livelihood.
Buckle up, this author, radio host and social entrepreneur works with busy professionals from the Mayo Clinic to the Middle East to help them live their lives with full gusto and she is ready to light a fire here with us, too!
She is the Women Entrepreneur of the Year winner for Contributions to Community, a wife, mom and triathlete (she came in last, but who’s counting?) with programs proven to increase feelings of hope, happiness & empowerment for participants.
Are you impressed yet? She also bakes a mean chocolate chip cookie!
