The event which features some of America's most talented and successful individuals takes place on February 21, 2020, at the Ogilvy Chocolate Factory.

Pratt conducted the world’s first live cryptocurrency auction of a multi-million-dollar luxury home, is a co-founder of blockchain community-focused film fund Mogul Studios, and CEO of James Pratt Auctions Group. His auction clients include some of the biggest celebrities in the world alongside high-profile figures in politics and technology.

“Looking back on my life, I find that —the bigger the adversities I faced— the greater my later success,” said Pratt. “In 2008, I was down to my last $15 away from friends and family to help and had little to work with.  It was at this point I fell into auctioneering by default.

“I was very lucky in that, however tough things were at that point, there was always at least one person standing behind me, encouraging me, and giving me an opportunity.

I worked hard with what I had and turned that adversity into a learning experience that would pay dividends later in life. I also learned the importance of encouragement,  encouraging people is life-changing.

Pratt today is a leading international businessman and auctioneer who handles some of the most expensive homes in the world, including recently auctioneering a $190 million-dollar home with 17 bedrooms and 3 indoor pools.

At iTalk, Pratt will discuss dreams, ambition, and proven techniques for living the life you are meant to live and how important ambition is.

Jen Donnell, Executive Producer, Co-Founder, and Partner of ITalk Events, said, “James is a tremendously gifted and talented individual. I’m so excited he can share his story and expertise with New York City. He will appear on stage alongside former Miss India and Hollywood Producer Preity Upala; Philly Freeway, a rap artist with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation; and NBC Universal Senior Vice President Shawn Leavitt.
