ICONTALKS was founded on the principal that an icon is someone who inspires not only through their innate talents but someone who manifests their purpose and passion in how they live their life and touch the lives of others. With that mantra as our driving force, we identify and work with icons from various walks of life, from music moguls to professional athletes, CEO’s, actors, and activists but also recognize those ordinary individuals who inspire through their triumphs, determination, and good will.
i·con (ˈīˌkän/) noun: a person or thing regarded as a representative symbol of something.
An intimate discussion with icons from various walks of life, from music moguls to professional athletes, CEO’s, actors, and activists. The conversations will explore their path to success and provide a platform to engage, entertain and inspire.

Our nonprofit, the ICON to ICAN Foundation, offers disadvantaged and disabled children the chance to meet and spend time with their ICON. The Foundation coordinates, funds and facilitates the meeting because we believe that providing a platform for children facing these challenges to meet their ICON provides them with significant motivation, encouragement, and inspiration that they CAN overcome their current situation and also be an ICON to others. Meeting their ICON not only uplifts and improves the morale and outlook of children dealing with severe illness and disabilities but it makes their lives better.
