"I'm an entrepreneur. Through the course of my career I've made a lot of money and I've been flat broke. Owning a business is hard. It took many small businesses way too long to take advantage of the Internet revolution. Now, we're in a Mobile revolution and I'm here to make sure that business owners stay ahead of the game this time.
But it doesn't stop there. Today's students are tomorrow's entrepreneurs. We have a responsibility to give them the tools, training and strategy to be competitive in a global economy. Mobile technology is critical to raising student engagement and achievement." – Damon Cockrel
An exciting and dynamic speaker, Damon has a unique ability to convey complex ideas in ways that educate, entertain and engage. As a teen, he was a local television reporter and a scholarship-winning actor. After college, he toured as a bass guitarist and lead vocalist. It should come as no surprise that Damon knows how to charm an audience. Technical and creative, he often refers to himself as "a geek with a personality."
Damon and his wife Christina live in Central Ohio. He is an alumnus of The Ohio State University and a member of the TBDBITL Alumni Club. A former competitive baton twirler, he enjoys donating his teaching skills to the OSU Marching Band Drum Major Training Program.
