Keynote Speaker: Azim Khamisa – International speaker and advocate for forgiveness and peace.

Hailed by dignitaries such as the Dalai Llama and Thich Nhat Hanh, Azim Khamisa delivers his inspirational message to a world in desperate need of forgiveness, peace and hope.

Following the murder of his only son Tariq in 1995 through a senseless, gang-related incident, Azim chose the path of forgiveness and compassion rather than revenge, and this amazing choice led to the establishment of the Tariq Khamisa Foundation (TKF) and his subsequent forgiveness work which has reached millions through international speaking, (in 1996 – a crowd of 300,000), public and corporate workshops, video and audio recordings and four published books, including the award-winning From Murder to Forgiveness and the Random House book The Secrets of the Bulletproof Spirit, coauthored with Jillian Quinn.
