About the Keynote

Andy Puzder

Andy Puzder required that all six of his kids read The Fountainhead before they were allowed to receive their driving permit. He wanted to make sure they learned to think for themselves, to be independent, to celebrate achievement, and defend liberty -- the moral messages he took from reading Ayn Rand's literary and philosophical works.

Author, writer, and for many years, CEO of Hardee's and Carl's Jr., Mr. Puzder was nominated by President Donald J. Trump to serve as Secretary of Labor. The story behind the most hotly-contested nomination of the current administration is just one of the stories Puzder will share in an eagerly anticipated book by Hachette Publishing. His second book, Puzder is also the co-author of Job Creation: How It Really Works and Why Government Doesn't Understand It.
