With the increase in technology, our societies have become increasingly socially isolated. Join Justin and Patrick as they share stories and observations on the impact healthy relationships lead to community, and how a healthy community can take you places you never thought possible.

Justin and Patrick draw on their work and life experiences, delving into what they believe is the most important attribute of an effective leader: vulnerability. Learn how being vulnerable aided them on their 500 mile journey through Spain and how it can bring strength to your team or business, create loyalty within your workforce, and can generate greatness where stagnancy once prevailed.

We live in a society that is quick to point out the limitations individuals possess. But what if limits did not define an individual? What if there was a way to push beyond limitations. Justin and Patrick teach and share how they have defied perceived limitations and achieved what many said was impossible.

Many thought they were foolish for attempting to walk 500 miles along the Camino de Santiago with Justin living life from a wheelchair. Some even told them they couldn’t accomplish it. For Justin and Patrick, the trek was something they had to do. Knowing full well that they could not be successful on their own, they set out with one wheelchair and two backpacks. Their faith was rewarded as they navigated the vast terrain of Spain, and they continue to take each step of life in faith. Join them as they explore moving from a posture of fear to standing triumphant in faith.

National Geographic writer Dan Buettner has traveled the globe to uncover the best strategies for longevity and happiness. He identified Blue Zones—places where have the greatest life expectancy and where more people reach age 100 than anywhere else. Working with a team of experts, Buettner distilled their secrets into nine common denominators he calls the Power 9™. What is the optimal diet for making it to a healthy age 90?  Should you be running marathons or doing yoga?  What supplements work?  Does stress really shorten your life?  Dan debunks the most common myths and offers a science-backed blue print for the average American to live another 12 quality years.  Using National Geographic photography and a dynamic delivery, Dan takes audiences to each of the Blue Zones and leaves audience with a actionable plan to live longer, healthier lives.

Science shows that where we live--not education, marital status or wealth—is the biggest, controllable factor that determines our happiness.  So where should we live? A tropical island? Paris? Las Vegas? It's not where you think.

Working with Gallup, The World Values Survey and the World Data Base on Happiness, Dan and his team found the three pockets around the world where people report the highest level of well-being—or happiness. Then, on assignment for National Geographic, he researched each of these hotspots and distilled down the common denominators in each place.  What can governments do to maximize the well-being of their citizens?   And more importantly, what can we do as individuals to stack the deck in our favor to maximize happiness?

His presentation incorporates National Geographic photographs and short video clips. It transports audiences to places around the globe where people are living happy and meaningful lives. It offers universal strategies on how to best achieve that life balance we all seek.

In 2009, Albert Lea, Minnesota, a statistically average American city, completed a one year community health experiment that raised life expectancy by three years, trimmed a collective 12,000 pounds off waistlines and dropped healthcare costs of city workers by some 40%.  USA Today, Good Morning America, AARP, ABC Nightline, CNN and U.S. News and World Report all covered the story.   Harvard's Dr. Walter Willett, writing in Newsweek magazine called the results “stunning”.   Dan Buettner, founder and director of the AARP/Blue Zones Vitality Project created a “perfect storm” of health that transformed a city. He tells the fascinating story of how one typically obese American city of 18,000 reversed the trend and also got happier. Dan's presentation takes audiences on the year long journey as this town adopts 28 evidence based ways to change their environment to live longer and better. They got healthier without thinking about it.
