otes that analog experiences are on the rise.

Author of Hospitality Law and Intelligent Emotions, Barth specializes in communicating the importance of Emotional Intelligence in leadership roles. His opening keynote will be a fun, fast-paced presentation that provides practical information and solutions to enhance both personal and professional lives.

Sax notes that digital promised to upend every industry from retail to manufacturing, education to design.  Yet, analog goods and experiences — tactile, lasting and human — are on the rise. With common sense and charm, Sax shows how digital's one-size-fits-all promise is being enhanced by a fusion of tangible, analog processes.
