Emcee: Mary Crafts

Mary Crafts is a world-renowned inspirational speaker who pours her passion for life into every presentation she gives- whether it is for a large corporation, a charitable organization or private executive coaching.

When Mary enters a room, she is always “coming in hot!” She can take a room full of people on a journey that is not only entertaining, but mind-shifting. In a world where so many motivational speakers bring plenty of sizzle and little to no steak, it is Mary’s intent when she stands in front of an audience to arm them before she walks off stage!

Her dynamic presentations always include specific tools and strategies that remain ever-present long after she has flown away. She encourages those who bring her in to speak to their organizations to “get ready to measure results!” Her impact is that obvious!

Special Guest Speaker: Moses Masoi

Moses Masoi is a Maasai Warrior (well, now an Elder) born and raised on the Maasai Mara in Kenya. This is his 8th expedition to the United States, as he joins 100 Humanitarians International at every event.

Moses is a humanitarian and expert safari guide who runs Emparnat Safaris and the Emparnat Cultural Centre. He is an ambassador for his tribe, helping families with food, water, education, and health.

He is passionate about politics and creating changes in his community without changing the culture and values that the Maasai have held for thousands of years.

Moses joined 100 Humanitarians International as Executive Direction of Kenya in 2015. He has managed every expedition since then (over 35) with hundreds of participants.

Moses is married with 3 daughters. His favorite animal is a hyena, but to find out why, you have to join us on an expedition.


Keynote Speaker: Heidi Totten

Heidi Totten is a 3X best-selling author, speaker, and serial entrepreneur. Since 2015, she has taken over 350 people to Kenya on humanitarian expeditions to help families rise above poverty.

Her passion is seeing the lightbulb go off when people realize that the power is within them to be the change in their own world.

When she isn't hauling down roads in Kenya in dusty jeeps, she can be found helping other entrepreneurs start and scale their businesses.

She is married to Dave, has a son in college and a plumbing apprenticeship, a daughter who is a Senior in high school, and the tiniest little pipsqueak of a dog who rules her world.

She is known for her love of tacos, avocados, and chocolate.

She wants to travel to all of the countries that end in the word 'land'.

Kenya has produced many Disney and pop covers over the years with one of her covers: her “Moana mashup” reaching 9.6 million views on YouTube.

Kenya’s dream is to share her music with the world, hoping to bring comfort and joy, a sense of belonging, peace and all of the feels.

She hopes her music can do that tonight for all of you and she is grateful to be here!
