Always Move Forward
Keynote with Eddie Huang, Restaurateur, Bestselling Author, TV Personality
Embrace your inner weirdo. Make things that excite you. Create, adapt, and rebuild if you fail. Use reason, think critically, work hard, worry less. Never let anyone else define you. These are Eddie Huang's life principles. Here's one more: do things your own way. That's what Eddie did. He owns a restaurant, hosts shows for Vice and MTV, wrote a bestselling book, started a clothing line—the list goes on. Hear Eddie dispense entrepreneurial lessons with his entertaining, no-holds-barred flair. Raw, profound, and uproariously funny, Eddie will share his adventures and successes to tell audiences that definitions aren't worth it, that diversity of thought is key, that embracing unknowns—as he's done time and again—can reap huge rewards. Everything, he tells you, is an opportunity to learn, to grow, and to move forward.
