In her address, Korsmo will provide her insights into the top challenges facing the land title insurance and settlement industry.

In his address entitled Evolving Out Loud, Cease will provide what promises to be an entertaining and motivational presentation on moving beyond hesitation and doubt toward what you really want in life. Cease has made over 100 different TV and movie appearances, including 10 Things I Hate About You, Not Another Teen Movie, Jimmy Kimmel Show, The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Chelsea Lately, Martin Short Show, Comics Unleashed, and numerous VH1 Shows.

 “We are truly thrilled to have such distinguished speakers as Michelle Korsmo and Kyle Cease for our conference in April,” said Patrick Hempen, SoftPro’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “I cannot overstate how gifted both of these individuals are as speakers and while landing one of them would have been significant for the success of our conference, having both of them speak is truly outstanding.”

In addition to the keynote sessions, SoftPro’s 2016 conference will offer a wide variety of hands-on classroom sessions for end users, business owners, and IT personnel. Having survived the implementation of the TRID rules, users can come together in a collaborative environment to learn how to thrive in the new playing field.
