Mark Fisher

Mark Fisher is the former BLM Rhode Island Chapter Co-Founder, & now, he is the Founder and executive director of BLM Inc, which is “…A pro-entrepreneurship education and financial empowerment non-profit company for African Americans and their communities”, based in Maryland. He is also an author, entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and a former community organizer.  He’s also the founding partner of “The Black Block” in which his team has bought an entire business block in downtown Pawtucket and dedicated it to supporting and elevating black-owned businesses in Rhode Island. This project also includes extremely affordable housing for people who are going through challenging times.
 
Mark was born and raised in a tough neighborhood, and like so many growing up in poverty, he had begun to travel a familiar road that doesn’t end well for so many. While this was just one of many challenges he overcame, though so many of the kids he grew up with didn’t make it past their obstacles, Mark did. He started out in life going quickly down a felonious wrong path as a wayward youth, heading toward a life of criminality, but he turned his life around with the help of family and his faith in the Lord. (As the son of a pastor perhaps it was fate that he graduated from Bible college in his mid 30’s, with a double major bachelor’s degree and making the Dean’s List!) And so now, he is dedicated to helping others realize no matter where they are in their journey, they can turn their lives around too. 
 
While many may think that Mark, by way of being of “BLM”, might be somehow partisan – he really isn’t. He is an original and analytical thinker with a mind of his own, who wants what is best for everyone in America at large, and for their communities locally. His message is one of unity, of coming together to help unify a fractured country. In fact, Mark participates in weekly prayer session of the J6 “Political” prisoners, seeing them as equally oppressed and victimized as any marginalized group. As he once said in an interview about the J6 prisoners: “”They’re lambs led to slaughter, to be sacrificed as an example for all who might want to dissent in the future,” and “This is what the government does to those who express independent thought and want to stand up for what they believe.” 
 
One of Mark’s greatest and most people-empowering projects was the creation of the first-ever African-American Library in New England called “The African American Innovation Center” to help youths not just to believe in their dreams, but also, to acquire the work skills to achieve them. He’s most proud of this particular initiative, as it teaches coding to people from the inner-city, who get paid $300 a month to learn, and then graduate from the program with the job skills to be able to earn a $50,000 annual salary. Mark has been featured recently in a number of different media outlets and podcasts, as well as having made numerous appearances on MSM outlets like NBC, ABC, and CBS affiliates, as well being interviewed by The Epoch Times and profiled by the Boston Globe – everyone likes to hear his message of hope and empowerment, as well as how the country needs to vote in order for the African-American community to continue to move forward. His answers might surprise some, which is why Mark is such an important keynote speaker for this new era.

Matt Hoy

Former vocalist for UB40 (Featuring Ali Campbell)

Matt Hoy was born and raised in Birmingham, UK and he’s been a musician all his life. In the 80’s when the band UB40 attained major success with a number of hits, he of course was in awe of them – because they too are from Birmingham, UK and they’d become known as “The Beatles of Birmingham” amongst the locals. So, it was like a dream come true when, in 2010, Matt joined the latest iteration of the band, and toured with them for almost 12 years, where he had the pleasure of singing “Red Red Wine” nearly every night to sold out venues around the world. 

But in 2021, Matt Hoy was rather unjustly dismissed from the job he loved simply for not having the Covid-19 vaccine, (even though the band and management company knew he was unable to receive it) due to a medical condition! Sadly, They’d made it mandatory for all members of the band to be injected, while completely ignoring the Disability section of the UK’s Equality Act, and they also ignored Matt’s individual medical reasons for not partaking. Undaunted, this hasn’t slowed Matt down at all. He continues to perform as a solo artist and now, he speaks wherever he can to tell his story of what happened, and what we can all do to make sure that what happened to him, never happens again… to anyone. 

Since being forced to leave the band (via text message, no less), Matt has made it his life’s mission to make people aware of the dangers vaccination, and also the very real impacts it has had on people’s lives, since so many were forced to abandon careers in the same way Matt was. His empathy especially goes out to all the home and health care workers, nurses, doctors, pharmacists, and medical staff who stood their ground and not only said no to it, but also and more importantly, refused to administer it, on an unsuspecting population.

Derrick Kinney

Culture today screams that money is bad. And if you have a lot of it, you’re the villain in the story. The problem is that false belief is holding back your sales team and your company from achieving the sales goals you deserve. So – Derrick Kinney is changing how we feel about money. He believes money is not bad and good people should have more of it.

For too long, business owners have used the quarterly bonus as the sole motivator for their team. That’s the old way of doing business. More money is great, but creates only temporary happiness, not lasting meaning for your team. Continuing to run your business like that makes you a dime a dozen and you seem like every other company.

Your employees don’t feel engaged and are easily temped by offers from other companies. And you’re not giving your ideal customers a compelling reason to work with your company. You don’t stand out. And that’s not right.

The future of business growth is connecting meaning to your money and purpose to your profits. Do that and you’ll have higher employee engagement, retain your best people and create a runway to record revenue.

As Derrick Kinney says, he’s heard there’s a recession coming but he’s decided not to participate. And you can’t afford to either. You, your business, your team and your customers deserve better.

If you’re tired of the same old cookie-cutter message to building your business and increasing your sales, then Derrick’s keynote presentation is an absolute Must Hear. If you’re ready to engage your audience and grow your revenue in a fresh way, and make the world better so you attract more of your ideal customers, putting Derrick on your stage will be one of the best ROI”s you make this year.

Making more money to do more good is the future of business—and you can’t afford to be left behind.

Leigh Dundas

Known the world over for her blazing & fiery speeches in defense of Freedom and Liberty, Leigh Dundas is an impassioned human rights attorney and modern-day abolitionist, who spent much of her 30 year career battling global injustices like human trafficking and the peddling of medical tyranny disguised as progress.

To say Leigh Dundas is a force to be reckoned with is an understatement:  she is known as a firebrand, a one-woman legal hurricane, a Freedom Fighter Extraordinaire, and a riveting on-stage magician that always leave the audience electrified with her stories of fighting some of the biggest wrongs the world has known.  If you are a lover of justice and sitting in her audience, Dundas will without fail have you on your feet – cheering for Freedom – evidenced by the standing ovations she’s gotten at the more than 100 talks she’s given since March 2020, to audiences which often number between 5,000 and 25,000 people. And for those on the wrong side of liberty, Ms. Dundas is known for her no-holds-barred, positively nuclear presentations before school boards and oversight committees … which often don’t end well for the public health “officials” she has in her sights. (Orange County & State of California, and most recently – the FAA). 

Having spent many years fighting the criminal cartels responsible for running child brothels in war-torn regions of Asia – where local governments often hamstring more than help – Leigh was forced to become an expert in using creative “out-of-the-box” campaigns in order to succeed where others have failed.  While most attorneys spend their days filing lawsuits which regrettably in today’s Brave New World are often unsuccessful, Ms. Dundas instead now dedicates her time and expertise to architecting novel leverage moves that capitalize on the power of the people at the grassroots level, while simultaneously exploiting her opponent’s Achilles Heels until victory ensues.  To wit:  when Orange County was set to adopt vaccination passports in the Spring of 2021 that would have created a modern-day Warsaw Ghetto, Leigh produced a TV Ad featuring a Holocaust Survivor exposing the situation, which move successfully defeated the Passport Plan.  Similarly, Dundas architected the Nationwide Walkout – where millions of workers worldwide went on strike against vaccine mandates from November 8-11, 2021 – as well as the coast-to-coast U.S. People’s Convoy in 2022, which protested the White House’s vaccine mandates (both of which campaigns were successful in creating massive pressure on Executive and Judicial Branches that ultimately helped to defeat the mandates).

Dundas spent the three months of Summer 2021 crossing the US multiple times while anchoring the Arise Freedom Tour, touching 50 different cities in more than 25 states. And if that isn’t enough, over the past 3 years, she has spoken at live events to over 60,000 people (and an additional 20 million worldwide through podcasts, radio and television). Dundas is also well-known as possibly the brightest star on Clay Clark’s Re-Awaken America Tour, and is also a featured guest on many educational panels and press conferences, as well as on podcasts hosted by Mel K, Charlie Ward, Ann Vandersteel, Bryan Ardis, Pete Santilli, James Grundvig, Doug Billings, The Flyover Conservatives and others. 

As well, Dundas was asked to testify in January of 2022 at the U.S. Senate Building before Senator Ron Johnson concerning the alarming rise in military diseases after the COVID-vaccine mandate, and also previously testified before the California State Senate on similar issues. Leigh’s first autobiographical book detailing her work as a young attorney, that ultimately resulted in her moving part-time to Asia to fight the child sex trafficking industry – before equipping her to join the fight of our lives in restoring Freedom in America – is due to be released mid-2023.

Videos

Leigh’s most personal and poignant speaking point concerns a lesson she learned in southeast Asia that she has never forgotten, and that resonates today more than ever:  “When you are facing a locked and loaded, double barreled weapon – full of hate and anger and tyranny and upset – which is ready to do you in, what do you do?  You… Stand… Up.  Always.  Because you are better off standing on your feet and fighting for your life, than ever taking a knee.”  Leigh is a unique keynote speaker – a woman who has taken the lessons she learned fighting evildoers that were hell-bent on destroying children in Asia … to the streets of America in 2020 – where she joined with others to defeat an even greater threat:  a second Holocaust designed to eradicate our very humanity, and to silence all who would speak against it.  To which Leigh resolutely believes:  Fiat Justitia, Ruat Caelum … “Let Justice Be Done, Though the Heavens May Fall.”  
 
The takeaways from a Leigh Dundas keynote are many, depending on the audience. But event professionals and organizers can be assured attendees will leave with at least 5 takeaways:
  • Motivation to make changes in their communities at the grassroots level
  • Inspiration to fight for freedom whenever it is being threatened by elected and unelected “officials”
  • Awareness of “mandates” that can be legally challenged on multiple levels
  • Hope for the future for themselves and their families
  • And finally… a sense of their own power as individuals to help create real, positive and lasting change in their lives & in the lives of others, by taking action…

BIOGRAPHY

Leigh Dundas is a veteran litigation attorney who spent a majority of the last two decades of counsel to international law firms. Beginning her career in the early 90’s as litigation counsel at Irell & Manella, LLP, Leigh handled multi-million dollar cases for Fortune 500 clients including Volkswagen of America, Advanta Bank, and William Lyon Company, as well as high-profile work for government municipalities and sports teams including The St. Louis Rams and City of West Covina. While much of her work related to general business matters, Ms. Dundas also focused on litigation that involved hi­ tech, environmental, and trade secret aspects. She continued this focus when she joined Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison in 2000 of counsel.

Thereafter, Ms. Dundas was asked to join The A21 Campaign in the dual capacity of General Counsel and Prosecutions Director for Asia. In that role, Leigh spent a significant amount of time on the ground in south-east Asia, liaising with foreign governments to reach bilateral Memoranda of Understanding allowing for operation of undercover surveillance of child brothels by former US law enforcement assets. While inAsia, Leigh also arranged meetings with high-ranking executives at major banking institutions – including heads of in-house counsel for some of the world’s largest financial institutions – who remained concerned that Asian banking conglomerates were being used by human traffickers to launder cash from the illicit sex trade. In that capacity, Leigh worked closely with both NGOs and Asian banks in the formulation of a plan to have on-the-ground investigators amass evidence of money laundering by child brothels and then use secure protocols to relay said data to the banking institutions – as banks are required to place holds on accounts when there is credible evidence such accounts are being utilized to launder monetary proceeds of crimes. Currently, this evidence is being automatically relayed to over 7,000 banks worldwide – via Thomson Reuters World­ Check and other premier providers of intelligence profiles – so that banks may perform due diligence and ensure trafficking proceeds are not being laundered through their accounts.

In the last half-decade, Leigh’s first-hand knowledge of the trafficking problems in southeast Asia- as well as her extensive network in the region – have proven invaluable to the U.S. government. In 2013, Leigh was appointed by the House Foreign Affairs Chairperson, Congressman Ed Royce, to the 113th Congressional Human Trafficking Congressional Advisory Committee, to assist in the identification of trafficking problems worldwide and help formulate US policy to combat same, and has performed similar work for the US Department of Homeland Security. In February 2014, Leigh spent three weeks in Sun Gai Kolok – a modern day Sodom & Gomorrah that is comprised of 140 child brothels on the Thai-Malay border- traveling in excess of 100 mph to avoid road-side insurgent violence while en route to meet with sex slaves trapped in the brothels, and to interview the Mafia-connected brothel owners. Leigh then led a group of VIPs and film crew back into Sun Gai Kolok later that month to document first-hand the horrors of the child-sex trade, until Thailand’s coup d’etat and threatened closure of the Bangkok International Airport forced a retreat. In early 2016, Ms. Dundas co-founded the American office of Liberty Global to work in tandem with her human rights non-profit, Justice Be Done, in continuing to forward the above initiatives.

Justin Hart is an executive consultant with more than twenty-five years of experience with Fortune 500 companies and presidential campaigns. He’s chief data analyst and founder of RationalGround.com, which helps companies, public officials, and even parents, gauge the impact of COVID-19 across the country.
 
In his new keynote presentation and just released book (Fall 2022) “Gone Viral: How Covid Drove The World Insane”, Justin explains how COVID-19 uncovered the decaying underbelly of confusion, panic, and fear-mongering by those in power in our American government and justice systems: Americans suffered the grave consequences of these failed policies, and the government, media, health agencies and their acolytes are all, to this day, trying to cover it up. But all is not lost – because Justin’s research of the data reveals so much that you just won’t hear in the MSM and counters the policy narratives, after listening to him you realize… there is nothing to fear!  
 
Justin eloquently, and with a sense of humor and humility, simply eviscerates the government’s responses over the past two and a half years. He explains:
● Why Americans have no reason to blindly “Trust the Science” just because government
bureaucrats say so
● How the data proves the ineffectiveness of masks and social distancing
● The statistics that prove there has been a severe loss in educational progress and mental
health quality of children
● How and why unchecked and undisputed government power grabs occurred

Kim Moody

The antithesis of the status quo, Kim is driven to innovate new and better ways to do things for the clients he serves, the advancement of the firm, and other professionals in tax. His relentless obsession with getting to know everything in the Tax Act makes him a highly sought-out resource for peers and clients. In March 2020, Kim published his first book, Making Life Less Taxing: Pay Attention To Your Taxes So You Can Pay Less Tax and Build a Strong, Smarter Canada – an Amazon bestseller in a number of categories.

Kim’s primary area of expertise is tax and estate planning for owner-managers of private corporations and executives, particularly those who have entered into the tax complexities that come with being affluent. Though admittedly not one himself, Kim works with many professional athletes (a guy has got to dream after all). Kim also has expertise in trust and estate taxation and enjoys solving the complexities that arise in developing a well-thought-out estate and succession plan and dealing with testamentary taxation matters.

Deciding years ago that sleep was highly overrated, Kim makes time to share his immense knowledge through writing, speaking, teaching, and being an active, national leader in the tax profession. In 2016, he fulfilled his long-standing goal of receiving admission into law school and is currently exploring ways to fit this ambition into his busy schedule.

Kim’s unique ability is being a loyal, transparent, and honest intellectual rebel who always does the right thing. His passion to lead, teach, never settle, and both seek and speak the truth aid in his contributions to the tax landscape. Kim desires to be an inspirational example for those around him to continuously grow. And in that vein, Kim is now writing a weekly column for the Financial Post, discussing tax matters mixed in with a little political commentary. (It seems the two go hand in hand). 

Videos

*Re the video below, the name of Kim’s law firm is now “Moody’s Private Client, LLP”.

Kim’s topics centre around tax, and of course on “Making Life Less Taxing”, and all the other things that taxes affect. He asks (and answers) a number of questions in his keynote presentations, such as: 

– Does Canada’s tax system need to be so complex? How much simpler can we make it so the average Canadian can understand it better?  Why should you care? Well, when the taxman cometh…
 
– Politics and income tax….the never ending inextricable link.  Is there a way to reduce political interference / content in tax statutes? 
 
– Is there a better way to increase government revenues than personal and / or corporate income taxes?  What about value-added only taxes as the main revenue generator? 
 
The case for comprehensive tax reform in Canada.  Why should Canadians care? (This is a keynote presentation that Kim loves to give – the need for expansive tax reform in Canada is urgent).
 
– Should the tax system incentivize / encourage private business? What happened in 2017 regarding taxes and small businesses? 

BOOKS:

Making Life Less Taxing: Pay Attention to Your Taxes So You Can Pay Less Tax and Build a Strong, Smarter Canada by [Kim G C Moody]

Making Life Less Taxing is written with the taxpayer in mind. It is your guide to become better informed about your tax situation and truly understand your tax system. Kim argues that every day should be tax day, not just April 30th!

The book will:

  • Clear up the misunderstandings out there about taxes
  • Make an argument for tax reformation and how it can benefit Canadian society on a larger scale
  • Distill the complex (and often overwhelming and scary) world of taxes into easy-to-understand material
  • Help the reader to lay out a plan of attack and consider all the what-ifs

AFTER THE PEAK: FINANCE IN AN AGE OF LESS

For the past three decades our world has known ever-rising volumes of money. Whether from Wall Street, the Federal Reserve, Europe or East Asia, this rising tide of capital at ever-cheaper rates has defined the post-Cold War era. It’s ending. Now. For reasons geopolitical and demographic, the globalization of finance is in its final months just as the overall inflows are dissolving for reasons demographic. This isn’t momentary. We will not return the capital structure of the 2000s and 2010s within our lifetimes. The questions now become how deep the crash will be, which sectors will suffer the most, and what islands will be able to weather the coming financial storm?

AT THE EDGE OF DISORDER

The concept of countries being able to buy and sell their wares openly on the international marketplace is inviolable. The freedom to sail one’s products around the world is a given. Everything from the transfer of money to the accessibility of energy is sacrosanct. Yet all this and more is artificial: an unintended — if happy — side effect of the American-led global Order. With that Order in its final days, all countries and all industries must learn to operate in a world as unstructured as it is dangerous. Join us as Peter Zeihan lays out how we got to where we are, and what the future holds for sectors as diverse as energy, agriculture, finance, manufacturing and transport.

A WORLD WITHOUT CHINA

Three pillars support modern China’s success: global trade, internal political unity, and easy money. With those three pillars, China has managed to shake 2000 years of war and occupation and remake itself as one of the world’s most powerful countries. Yet none of these three pillars can stand without American assistance, and that cooperation is ending. China’s “inevitable” rise isn’t simply over, it is about to go into screeching, unrelenting, dismembering reverse. But that’s hardly the end of history. When a country falls — particularly the world’s top manufacturing power — the ripples affect countries and industries near and far. Learn who benefits and who loses in a world without China.

THE RETURN OF DOLLAR DIPLOMACY

The Mideast wars have left the United States exhausted and leery. Immigration has become a four-letter word. Shale has severed most of the ties that bind. In sum, the United States has lost interest in the wider world and so is already hip-deep in a decade-long retrenchment. That will change not just the world, but America itself. Such evolutions will make next phase of American engagement not just more thoughtful and surgical, but also more lucrative.

AMERICA ON THE EDGE

The world as we know it is ending. Global trade and everything that comes from it — cheap Asian goods, international energy markets, global agriculture, stable finance — is about to unravel. Out of all this the Americans — cast in both the role of disruptor and survivor — are making decisions that will shape both themselves and the rest of the world for decades. Get a sneak peak at the future of energy, agriculture, finance, and the role America will play in the world to come.

THE END OF EUROPE

Five recessions in nine years. A litany of debt debacles. Ossified institutions incapable of change. Rising populism. Refugee floods. Russians growling at the border. And that’s the good news. Despite a decade of crisis none of Europe’s problems have had their root causes addressed, and now time is simply up. Everything that makes modern, wealthy, cosmopolitan, democratic Europe possible is breaking apart, and the Europeans are about to lose far more than “merely” a decade. Discover what makes Europe tick, what is tearing it down, and most of all, what is next.

RETOOLING FOR THE END OF THE WORLD

Supply chains are shattering like toothpicks. Energy supplies face their greatest stress of the modern era. Global agriculture is being unmade day by day. Finance has peaked, and it is a long way down. Far from expanding out of control, populations are instead crashing. We face nothing less than the end of the globalized age. Are you ready? No? You’re hardly alone. Join us as geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan lays out the end of the old world, and the beginning of the new.

AMBER WAVES OF (AMERICAN) GRAIN: THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL AGRICULTURE

Modern agricultural patterns are the result of three largely unrelated factors: low-risk global trade, insatiable Asian demand, and unlimited cheap credit. Within the next five years, all three of these trends will not just evaporate, but invert. When that happens, the only thing that will hurt more than the gradual loss of demand will be the sudden collapse of supply. However, none of this impacts the American producer – it therefore will be the United States that will reap the benefits of its productivity and stability for decades to come.

THE ALBERTA QUESTION

As the global system evolves no country is better positioned than Canada. Very soon Canada’s choices will be about how to take advantage of opportunities, rather than how to avoid complications. But in this very silver lining is a very dark cloud. The same evolutions that will allow Canada unprecedented opportunities for wealth and respect also hold the possibility of damaging the Canadian state. This time the dangers do not originate from the United States, but from within Canada itself. And they could very well prove mortal.

BOOKS:

2019 was the last great year for the world economy.

For generations, everything has been getting faster, better, and cheaper. Finally, we reached the point that almost anything you could ever want could be sent to your home within days—even hours—of when you decided you wanted it.

America made that happen, but now America has lost interest in keeping it going.

Globe-spanning supply chains are only possible with the protection of the U.S. Navy. The American dollar underpins internationalized energy and financial markets. Complex, innovative industries were created to satisfy American consumers. American security policy forced warring nations to lay down their arms. Billions of people have been fed and educated as the American-led trade system spread across the globe.

All of this was artificial. All this was temporary. All this is ending.

In The End of the World Is Just the Beginning, author and geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan maps out the next world: a world where countries or regions will have no choice but to make their own goods, grow their own food, secure their own energy, fight their own battles, and do it all with populations that are both shrinking and aging.

The list of countries that make it all work is smaller than you think. Which means everything about our interconnected world—from how we manufacture products, to how we grow food, to how we keep the lights on, to how we shuttle stuff about, to how we pay for it all—is about to change.

A world ending. A world beginning. Zeihan brings listeners along for an illuminating (and a bit terrifying) ride packed with foresight, wit, and his trademark irreverence.

TESTIMONIALS:

“I didn’t know what to expect and I’m still in awe. This wasn’t just a keynote – it was a unique experience. I’d strongly recommend that every emerging leader go through this experience; it’s inspirational and transformative.” – President of Human Resources, HARMAN International

“Suneel Gupta is one of the highest-rated speakers we’ve ever had. His talk was filled with great insights on the essential ingredients for successfully accomplishing your goals by winning support from others along the way. I plan to put many of his ideas into action to become a more “backable” leader, and I know others who heard his talk plan to do the same. But, beyond all of the practical lessons, the lasting impression our audience had was that Suneel is a genuine, caring person who understands leadership challenges. His stories were filled with humility, empathy, and emotion, traits we rarely encounter from our keynote presenters. If you’re looking for an excellent talk delivered with a strong sense of humanity, I recommend Suneel Gupta.” – President, Association for Advancing Automation

“Suneel is a true master of storytelling and his message was delivered to our audience at just the right time. Creating engagement at annual conferences can be tough. But when you couple that with a virtual conference environment, connecting with the audience is no easy feat. Suneel’s keynote on beating burnout to drive innovation was timely and his ability to draw in the audience resulted in the highest engagement numbers of all the sessions for our event. Some speakers can be too in the weeds, while others tend to speak over attendees’ heads. Suneel provided the perfect mix of actionable insights with passion for the topic. Attendees left refreshed, energized and appreciative of the experience.” – Freddie Mac

He took time to learn about our business, the great work that financial advisors do for their clients, and made his lessons impactful for the entire audience.
