"In addition to our training and technical education, we are pleased to announce our keynote speaker for the industry breakfast is Kevin Harrington, entrepreneur and original Shark on the ABC hit, Emmy-winning TV show ‘Shark Tank’,” Dunbar said.

The conference will include a seminar series, super sessions and technical workshops.
