NY Tech Summit Announces 2016 Keynote Speaker

World-Class Drummer Mark Schulman to Speak at Turning Stone on June 9

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – NY Tech Summit announces Mark Schulman, talented drummer for world-class rock and pop artists, will deliver the keynote address at its 12th annual event taking place June 8-10 at Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona.

Schulman’s keynote address, Conquering Life's Stage Fright: Three Steps to Top Performance, will encourage, challenge and inspire attendees to step beyond their perceived limitations. He will share three core concepts that provide the blueprint to confident peak performance by incorporating live entertainment, audience participation, and video to create the ultimate learning environment.

Schulman has more than 25 years of experience as a drummer for top artists and entertainers, including P!nk, Foreigner, Sheryl Crow, Stevie Nicks, Billy Idol, Cher, and Destiny’s Child. He was voted as one of the Top 3 Pop-Rock Drummers in the “Modern Drummer” Readers Poll in 2014.

“We are excited to have Mark kick off NY Tech Summit this year and know he will deliver an impactful and fun learning experience that will set the stage for an incredible event,” said Renee Duffy, conference producer and director of marketing for the event’s presenting sponsors, TERACAI and CXtec. “The unique way Mark shares his stories will leave a lasting impression and provide a new perspective on the way we approach business and life.”

Schulman draws from his experiences as a musician, producer, author, published songwriter, philanthropist, cancer conqueror and father to deliver presentations that are energizing, entertaining and unique. Through the use of musical instruments and various team-building techniques, he will have even the musical novice participants, learn, thrive and lose themselves in the harmony and sound of their musical band.

He has drummed with Velvet Revolver at Ozzfest and for crowds of 200,000 at Glastonbury Festival with Simple Minds. Schulman has also appeared on many American and European variety shows, including The Grammys, David Letterman, The Tonight Show, Conan O’Brian, Jon Stewart, American Idol, Paul O’ Grady, X-Factor and Wetten Das.

Schulman also authored the book, “Conquering Life's Stage Fright: Three Steps to Top Performance,” which arms readers with the essential tools to step up and break through defining moments.

NY Tech Summit conference passes will be available for purchase beginning March 16 for an early bird price of $395. For more information, visit www.nytechsummit.com.

It’s a little different perspective than I’ve gotten from other tradeshows, other organizations, other groups. That’s the part that has made it more interesting.
