More about the Keynote Speaker, Arel Moodie

Arel Moodie grew up on welfare in the projects of Brooklyn, NY where he witnessed those around him being murdered and imprisoned.

College became his only way out; he took advantage of his opportunity there that forever changed his life. He was the president of 4 student organizations, named one of the top 5 exemplary students at his school, and also named the most outstanding graduating senior of his class.

Arel is a best selling author, entrepreneur and nationally acclaimed public speaker. He went from the projects on welfare to building a million dollar business.

Arel has been a featured speaker at the White House and has been personally acknowledged for his work with youth by President Obama; he was just chosen by the US Chamber of Commerce to sit on the board of a committee to help recent college graduates find employment.

He has written for Forbes and Huffington Post.

Inc. Magazine called Arel a “High-Energy, Motivator” and named him to their “30 Under 30 list” of top American entrepreneurs under 30 years old joining people like Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook. He was also named by Black Enterprise Magazine as one of their “Tycoons Under 25.”
