Keynote Speaker 


Koy McDermott


Koy has a massive passion for changing lives and has been obsessed with business since he was a child. After years of working with hundreds of Fortune 500 companies as well as a lot of 7 and 8 figure businesses he found that helping businesses grow was fun, but helping PEOPLE GROW was his real passion.

“Feeling depressed when the sun would set on Sunday night and waking up every morning anxious, not excited for what the day would hold, brought me to a dead end. I knew I could not continue doing what I was doing and be able to live the life I wanted. Leaders Inspire Leaders was created for the personal and professional development of my generational peers, Millennials. To show those who are not satisfied with their current lives that they have a choice and the power to change things for the better. Through the internationally renown podcast, workshops, and coaching we are on a mission to expose 3M Millennials to the possibilities of entrepreneurship.”

Quita Culpepper

KVUE 24 Journalist

Quita Culpepper.jpgJournalism has always been a huge part of my life...I remember being a little kid, my nose practically pressed against the tv screen watching the 11 o'clock news. (No, my parents didn't let me stay up that late. I snuck out of bed to see it! Sorry Mom and Dad!) My family and I moved from Upstate New York to Austin when I was 13, and I've come to think of this unique and quirky city as my second hometown.

I was lucky enough to get my first job in news right here in Austin, working for a local radio station, and after that, landed at KVUE, where I anchor KVUE News Weekend and report three days a week. I also get to do a consumer segment called "Does it Work Wednesday," which I really enjoy.

I've been in this business for more than 15 years...won quite a few awards and accolades along the way, and met everyone from the President of the United States to the man who works behind the counter at my favorite restaurant. And I've enjoyed every moment. I'm lucky enough to work with a great group of people.

Journalism -- this is what I do. And I'm proud to do it for KVUE.
