The world’s most famous magician will take your audience on a journey into his world of magic that will leave them believing they have the power to achieve the impossible. With the wonderment of magic, David Blaine brings his up close and personal style combined with his determination and inspirational methods to a new level which has led some to call him a modern-day scientist. At his presentation at TEDMED he was one of only two speakers to receive a standing ovation.

Terry Bradshaw (Exclusively WSB)

At a time when business is experiencing very serious challenges, perhaps it’s time to go back to basics and take a closer look at what makes people successful despite disappointment, adversity and relentless competition. Legendary Hall of Fame Quarterback Terry Bradshaw, a success both on and off the field, shares with audiences his strategies for maintaining success through persistent self-improvement. All of us, he says, want to better ourselves, to learn about ourselves and to apply that learning towards a common goal. Bradshaw invites audiences to think in new ways about sacrifice, pain, competition and adversity, while giving specific examples of how to focus the power of dreaming, thinking and strategizing towards goals and success.

Burns discusses the great gift of our national parks. Here both “the immensity and the intimacy of time” merge, as we appreciate what the parks have added to our collective and individual spirit. Begins with a 13-minute clip (the intro to The National Parks: America’s Best Idea).

Ken Burns reminds the audience of the timeless lessons of history, and the enduring greatness and importance of the United States in the course of human events. Incorporating The Civil War, Baseball and Jazz, Burns engages and celebrates what we share in common. No clips.

The Civil War continues to be the most important event in American history. In this eloquent address, Burns paints both an intimate and bird’s eye view of the searing events of the years 1861 through 1865 and the war’s profound relevance to us today.
