How does someone go from being a rock musician to a national security expert? Keynote speaker Jeff Baxter has always had an interest for technology and quickly became self-taught in the area of military technology and missile defense systems. He wrote up a paper that proposed converting a ship-based anti-aircraft missile system into a rudimentary missile defense system, passed it onto the right people and his new career started taking form.

Inspired by music, Jeff has an unconventional way of thinking. Seeing something not for what it’s meant to do, but what it’s able to do. This allows him to constantly be innovative and think ahead.

As a speaker Jeff Baxter is one of a kind. His way of combining the art of music with problem-solving and corporate adversities is unique and entertaining while being very educating. His methods and ideas are game-changers for anyone from students to large corporate firms. Jeff’s keynotes are engaging, funny and extremely interesting and educating. You will open your eyes and look at everything differently. Jeff Baxter also does presentations with him playing guitar to illustrate his ideas and concepts.
