Judi Holler - Keynote Speaker

We're thrilled to welcome the inspirational, energetic, and incredibly witty #FearBoss, Judi Holler, to the 2019-20 PLTW Summit stage as our keynote speaker.

Judi is a keynote speaker, best-selling author, a professionally trained improviser, and alumni of The Second City Conservatory in Chicago.

Judi’s vision is for a world so brave that fear is actually a motivator. She addresses what we ask our PLTW teachers and students to do each day – get comfortable with being uncomfortable and embrace the things that scare us like fear of failure, change, or the unknown.

At PLTW Summit, she’ll share actionable steps and strategies to overcome fear and use it as a tool to achieve peak performance and empower their students and inspire creativity and innovation.
