Innovation and Music Converge for a Powerful G2I Closing Keynote

Uniquely talented musician Kai Knight, who embodies the power of innovation in a world of conformity, will deliver the closing keynote at the Gateway to Innovation (G2I) conference April 25, 2019 at America’s Center Convention Complex in downtown St. Louis. G2I is the region’s premier gathering of technology professionals and executives.

Kight uses music as a metaphor to inspire individuals and organizations around the world to compose paths of imagination and fulfillment. Kight has performed his original music for audiences around the world, from the White House to the Great Wall of China. His mesmerizing and original violin performance beautifully becomes a sonic metaphor for the core of his message: to inspire people to compose unique ideas in a world that celebrates conformity.

“This promises to be a memorable keynote. Kai is an incredible performer who has an equally compelling message that will inspire G2I attendees to bring their own unique ideas forward,” said 2019 Gateway to Innovation Conference Chair Jill Rausch of WWT Asynchrony Labs.

Kight completes the lineup of world-class 2019 G2I keynote presenters, a hallmark of the annual one-day conference, which includes Alison Levine (The Art of High-Impact Leadership) and Boaz Rauchwerger (The Tiberias Transformation – How To Change Your Life In Less Than 8 Minutes A Day)

G2I also offers more than 30 breakout sessions focused on cutting-edge industry developments and best practices, in addition to exceptional networking opportunities.

Proceeds from each G2I conference are directed to individuals and organizations with technology-related needs in the St. Louis area. The conference has contributed $1,679,951 to more than 57 organizations, awarded 62 individual scholarships, endowed six scholarship funds, supported numerous STEM initiatives, and funded other technology needs for the region.

Registration information for the 2019 conference is available on the G2I website,
