Tony Hawk to Keynote iConnect 2020

KUBRA is thrilled to announce that Tony Hawk will be our keynote speaker for iConnect 2020! 

One of the most famous skateboarders of all time, Tony started winning amateur contests at the age of 12, and turned pro by the young age of 14. With over 73 pro contest wins and the distinction of the first person to land a 900 (two and a half full rotations), Tony has proven himself as one of the most talented skateboarders ever. However, Tony wasn’t content to let his journey stop there. He also created his own skateboard and clothing companies, launched one of the most popular video game franchises in history and developed a touring action sports exhibition. He is also the author of two books and continues to regularly appear on television and in films.

Tony has been the recipient of numerous awards, including Make-A-Wish’s Favorite Male Athlete, Teen Choice Awards’ Choice Male Athlete, and Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards’ Favorite Male Athlete, beating out such sports icons as Shaquille O’Neal, Tiger Woods, and Kobe Bryant. He is the most recognized Action Sports figure in the world and, according to some marketing surveys, one of the most recognizable athletes of any kind in the United States.

In his iConnect keynote presentation, Tony will talk about his story and how he has managed to stay relevant in a sport that is especially youth-oriented by staying true to who he is. With Tony’s typical modesty and humor, he will tell the amazing story of his unprecedented success from skateboarder to CEO. He has a deep connection to his audiences, fans, and customers; with over 3 million followers, Tony is a great example of the power of social media. Tony’s story of building a global brand and giving back to the community and his lessons of leadership, perseverance, and initiative are relevant to everyone.
