Introducing our conference keynote speaker, Adam Braun
How often do you hear that becoming a no-kill community is “impossible”? Best Friends National Conference keynote speaker Adam Braun defines himself by doing the “utterly impossible.” Started with just $25, his organization, Pencils of Promise, has broken ground on more than 200 schools around the world.

From there, this New York Times bestselling author of “The Promise of a Pencil: How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change” – which debuted at #2 – was named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 List, Wired Magazine’s 50 People Who Are Changing the World, and selected as one of the World Economic Forum’s first 10 Global Shapers. He’s also been a featured speaker at the White House, United Nations and Clinton Global Initiative. Adam will convince you that you – yes, you! – can do anything. That’s why Best Friends is thrilled to announce that this pioneer of social change will deliver this year’s keynote address.
