Keynote Speaker

Anthony Ianni: National Motivational Speaker, Michigan Department of Civil Rights

Anthony is with the Michigan Department of Civil Rights. At the age of four, Anthony was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), which is on the Autism Spectrum. Doctors and specialists told Anthony’s parents that he would barely graduate from high school or college, would never have a shot at being an athlete and would likely live in a group institution with other autistic individuals for his adult life.

Not only did he earn a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Michigan State University, he is the first Division I basketball player in NCAA History with autism. Anthony has pledged his life and career to help those who face similar challenges. He has been invited to tell his story and share his message across the country and has inspired countless individuals to live their dreams.
