ShiftCon 2020 is happening in just 2 more months and we are beyond excited to welcome our next Keynote Speaker to the ShiftCon community – Hill Harper!
You’ve seen his face many times, but you’d be shocked to learn all of the amazing work he has done and continues to do!
Among his many titles, Hill Harper is a humanitarian, an award-winning actor, best-selling author, entrepreneur, health and wellness ambassador/educator and philanthropist. Hill is perhaps most recognizable for his starring role in the CBS hit television drama CSI: NY where he played eccentric Dr. Sheldon Hawkes (for which, he won three NAACP Image Awards for Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series). You can also see him in the CBS Network’s Covert Affairs, Limitless, Showtime’s award-winning drama Homeland, as well as ABC’s #1 television drama, The Good Doctor.
Just a few more facts you may or may not know about Hill Harper:

- He served on the President’s Cancer Panel having been appointed by President Obama in 2011 (Fun fact: The two are actually college buddies from Harvard Law School!)
- Hill was an integral part of the movement to bring clean water to Flint, Michigan and continues to fight to the end this crisis.

Hill also holds multiple honorary doctoral degrees!
