Peter Diamandis to Headline Staffing World® 2024


Taylor Swift-Style Puzzle Announces ASA Keynote Speaker

The American Staffing Association has announced that Peter H. Diamandis, XPRIZE Foundation founder and executive chairman, will deliver the opening keynote presentation at Staffing World 2024, Oct. 22–24 at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville. Staffing World is the ASA annual convention and expo, the largest professional event in the industry.

Peter Diamandis is a serial entrepreneur, futurist, technologist, New York Times best-selling author, and the founder of more than 25 companies. Fortune magazine has named Diamandis one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.” His life’s mission is to empower entrepreneurs to create a hopeful, compelling and abundant future for humanity.

“Peter Diamandis is a visionary whose passion for disruptive innovation has transformed multiple business sectors,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA CEO. “His experiences in creating transformative change will help attendees learn how to embrace a mindset of explosive growth in their businesses.”

The Diamandis keynote announcement was unveiled on the ASA LinkedIn page in the form of a puzzle, similar to pop star Taylor Swift’s recent clues surrounding the release of her latest album, “The Tortured Poets Department.” In the post, followers are asked to decipher a code contained in a message about the effects of Swift concerts on temporary staffing demand. The answer, contained within capital letters in the message, spells out Diamandis.
