Lyrasis Member Summit Featuring Keynote, Speech Thomas

On January 22, registration opens for our virtual Member Summit, to be held on Thursday, February 22, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST, via WebEx Events.

What to expect at the Member Summit:

  • Speech Thomas, 2x Grammy Award Winning founder and lead singer of the 4x platinum hip-hop collective Arrested Development, will be our keynote speaker. Using voice and song, Speech presents a keynote like no other. A gifted storyteller, his message is clear from the beginning: "It's not who you are that holds you back. It's who you think you're not." Speech's story and advice applies, no matter the situation. “Do what you can with what you have and with the people around you.” We always want to make a difference no matter what, and Speech will show us how to create, innovate and break new ground by being B.R.A.V.E (Bold, Resilient, Adaptable, Vulnerable, Encouraging).
  • Hear from our CEO, John Wilkin, and others from the Lyrasis Leadership Team on our strategic charges and direction, with plenty of options for Q&A throughout.
  • Learn more about what Lyrasis offers and does for the larger community by browsing our virtual booths which feature our products, services and partners. The booths will be available as soon as you register!

Stay tuned for more info coming soon, and we look forward to seeing you virtually on Feb. 22!
