Novatus Announces Bert Jacobs as Keynote for Connect 2015 User Conference

July 07, 2014

Novatus, a leading provider of contract lifecycle management solutions, announced Bert Jacobs will be the keynote speaker kicking off their Connect 2015 Annual User Conference, being held February 9-11 in Orlando. Jacobs, co-founder and Chief Executive Optimist of The Life is good® Company, will share the company’s story, with inspirational insights on the effect optimism has had on its popularity and growth, and the importance of investing in the customer experience.

When Jacobs and his brother John founded the apparel company in 1994, all they had to make it a success was the outlook that the company promotes. His keynotes focus on providing inspirational information on how optimism is fun, healthy and empowering. He shares how, through word-of-mouth, an optimistic attitude, and investing in the customer experience helped turn his small t-shirt business into a $100 million company. Along the road to success, Jacobs has given back through the Life is good Kids Foundation, which helps kids overcome life-threatening challenges, with a focus on overcoming violence, poverty and illness.

In addition to Jacob’s keynote, the 2015 Novatus Connect User Conference will feature general sessions and breakout sessions led by executives and practitioners from leading global companies. Topics will include product presentations, integrations, customer success sessions, dynamic keynote speakers and breakouts about contract management. A User’s Lab will be set up for product demonstrations and learning sessions.    Early registration discounts are available through August 31, 2014. To register, go to
