Closing Keynote:

Rick Lozano

About Speaker:

Rick Lozano has developed a reputation... and it turns out it is quite different from the one his mother thought he'd have! 

After 15 years of experience as a Learning and Development Professional, Rick has found a way to combine his talents as a facilitator, speaker, performer, and musician to create an environment that is the definition of fun, engaged learning.

From functional training to keynote speeches, his passion, energy, music, and unique delivery leaves audiences raving wherever he goes. 

Rick now works at one of the coolest companies in the world, Rackspace Hosting in San Antonio, and whether it is during office hours or at night gigging around town, he continues to earn a reputation that will (mostly) make his mother proud!
