Ochsner Innovation Stage

Marcus Lemonis – America’s number one business turnaround artist, a self-made business titan and serial entrepreneur – will share secrets of business success with hundreds of attendees to breathe new life into their business ventures and aspirations. On his CNBC hit series, The Profit, Lemonis lends his business expertise to struggling businesses in a variety of industries across the country and breaks down each business into these three key components – People, Product and Process – while detailing how they affect the success or failure of a business and discussing how the process has played an important role in his own company's success. As CEO of Camping World Holdings, he leads over 10,000 employees in over 150 cities across the U.S. He is a passionate, dynamic road warrior whose entire life has been on the move – which is synonymous with the RV and outdoor lifestyle. Lemonis was recognized for having “more impact on the industry than any single individual or company in recent memory as an agent of change and retail consolidation,” when RV Business Magazine named him their 2007 Newsmaker of the Year. In addition, Crain’s Chicago Business featured him in their 2005 edition of “40 under 40,” and in 2008, Ernst & Young named him Entrepreneur of the Year. Charismatic, down-to-earth and brutally honest, Lemonis dispenses “tough love” as well as practical and strategic advice that enables others to take the necessary bold steps to evolve their business and succeed in competitive environments. Lemonis drives results through collaborations, partnerships and relationships. His advice for aspiring entrepreneurs is simple: know your numbers, trust the process and remember that he’s 100 percent IN CHARGE!
