Frank Warren is the sole founder of the PostSecret Project, a growing collection of over a million artful secrets mailed to him anonymously on postcards.

Considered one of the most influential people on the Internet by Forbes, Warren will share his insights on why its’ important to “Live Out Loud: Your Voice Matters!” To-date, Warren has appeared on several national and international news outlets including “Good Morning America,” “The Today Show,” “CBS News Sunday Morning,” CBC and the BBC to talk about his six PostSecret books, the current exhibition at the Museum of Man, and the emotional PostSecret events held around the world. During the keynote address, Warren will demonstrate the power of sharing hopes, dreams, fears and failures, and how PostSecret became the catalyst for his passionate commitment to mental health advocacy. The project has raised over $1,000,000 for suicide prevention, and earned Warren a Mental Health Advocacy Lifetime Achievement Award.
