Synapse names Spanx CEO Sara Blakely as keynote for 2020 Summit


    Spanx founder and CEO Sara Blakely will be the featured keynote speaker at Synapse Summit 2020, a two-day conference to highlight innovation in Florida and in the Tampa-St. Pete area.

    Blakely is a Clearwater native who launched Spanx with $5,000 in savings and grew the undergarment business to a $1 billion company. She was a top choice for a Synapse keynote because she is a true innovator, said Lauren Prager, Synapse vice president for community engagement.
