Keynote by David Meltzer

CEO and Co-founder of Sports 1 Marketing

David Meltzer is the former CEO of the legendary Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment, which was the inspiration for the Jerry Mcquire movie, and the co-founder and CEO of Sports 1 Marketing, arguably the most notable sports marketing firm in the world.

He started with nothing and yet became a millionaire just nine months out of law school and a multi-millionaire by the time he was 32. But then he went broke, but then, he made it all back again, and now he is a successful serial entrepreneur and philanthropist who, through hardship, was forced to codify the rules of success.

To that end, everything that he and his business partner, Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon, has a charitable component, and this rule has only accelerated their business growth. Sports 1 Marketing is currently involved in projects surrounding many of the world’s biggest sporting events, including the Super Bowl, the Pro Football Hall of Fame, The Masters, and countless others.

Forbes and Entrepreneur named him one of the top keynote speakers on the planet, and Variety Magazine’s Sports Humanitarian of the Year.
