Keynote Speaker

Erik Wahl, an internationally recognized artist, author and entrepreneur

Erik Wahl, an internationally recognized artist, author and entrepreneur. As an internationally recognized graffiti artist, and a #1 best-selling business author, Erik redefines the term "keynote speaker." Pulling from his history as both a business strategist and an artist, he has grown to become one of the most sought-after corporate speakers available today. Erik's on-stage painting seamlessly becomes a visual metaphor to the core of his message, encouraging organizations toward profitability through innovations and superior levels of performance.

Houston Ballet Center for Dance

As part of our theme for the conference, The Art of the Houston Methodist Experience, we will be taking a unique back stage look at the world-renowned Houston Ballet Center for Dance. This will include a performance by top students of the Houston Ballet Academy, tours of the Houston Methodist physical therapy facility and the area where the magnificent costumes are created and stored. This will be followed by drinks and hors d'oeuvres overlooking Houston's historic Buffalo Bayou. An outstanding evening experience!
