South by Southwest Interactive on Monday revealed another keynote speaker for the 2016 festival: Andy Puddicombe, the co-founder of the meditation Headspace, will speak on Tuesday, March 15.
He joins Casey Gerald, the CEO of MBAs Across America, previously announced as the opening keynote speaker for the festival along with a set of featured speakers.
Venice-based Puddicombe is described on the Headspace bio page for him as a “Meditation and mindfulness expert” with a degree on Sports Science who happens to be ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist monk. He’s the author of three books.
A month from now, on Oct. 19, SXSW Interactive will announce the bulk of its 2016 programming.
