Camarillo, CA – WorkCompCentral recently announced the keynote speaker for the 2018 Comp Laude® Awards and Gala. Ben Nemtin, who is a New York Times #1 Bestselling Author and started an inspiring movement that encourages individuals to realize their dreams and help others, will kick off the conference as featured keynote.
Ben and his friends Jonnie, Duncan and Dave started “The Buried Life” in their parent’s garage in 2006. They made a list of ‘100 things to do before you die’ and for every list item they accomplished, they helped a stranger do something on their list. Since then, they’ve crossed off ‘#53: Make a TV Show (on MTV)’, ‘#19: Write a #1 New York Times Bestselling Book’, ‘#67: Sit with Oprah’ and have encouraged millions to believe that anyone can do anything. Ben and his friends have 13 items left on their list and are currently crossing off ‘#91: Make a Movie’, producing “The Buried Life” feature documentary film.
The annual Comp Laude® Awards and Gala take place October 9 – 11 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, CA.
Kristen Chavez, Director of Business Development said, “We are excited to return to San Diego and bring together the industry for an exciting two days. Our agenda focuses on how we, as a community of professionals, can improve the delivery of workers compensation benefits through intense engagement and collaboration.”
