General session speakers announed for IHRSA 2014

The general session spearkers during the IHRSA International Convention & Trade Show always packs the house. One reason is for the variety of speakers whose topics always come back to the health and fitness industry.

How else can you explain having both Havard social scientist professor Nicholas Christakis and Life is good co-founder Bert Jacobs on stage last year in Las Vegas?
