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.

José Andrés (Exclusively WSB)

Described by The Wall Street Journal as “a force of nature, the Energizer Bunny, the Tasmanian devil, and Luke Skywalker,” José Andrés is not your typical “chef” by any stretch of the imagination. As a man with 13 restaurants; numerous prestigious accolades, including the James Beard Award for Outstanding Chef in America, the highest honor in the U.S. restaurant industry; owner of ThinkFoodGroup, a company with 800 employees and an annual revenue of $75 million; a sought-after TV icon; a political activist; and a professor at Harvard, Andrés’s secret to success is evident in his being so passionate about creativity and innovation that he has no problem rolling up his sleeves and doing the heavy lifting himself. In a presentation chock-full of edge-of-your-seat anecdotes, Andrés proves that a culture of innovation and creativity not only leads to personal success, but also a better tomorrow for all.

José Andrés (Exclusively WSB)

With a mission to change the world through the power of food, José Andrés has dedicated himself to not just feeding the few at his award-winning restaurants, but to feeding the many as well. Alongside his non-profit organization World Central Kitchen, Andrés works to find smart solutions to hunger and poverty around the world, focusing on health, education, and jobs. Beginning with his experience volunteering in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, Andrés realized that food can be used to empower communities and strengthen economies. In an uplifting and inspirational presentation, Andrés shares stories and images from his travels, including the work he has done in promoting clean cookstove technology, improving kitchens in urban and rural schools, and launching culinary projects to create jobs and increase opportunities for families in Haiti and around the world.

Inspired by watching a professional cricket match on ESPN late one evening, J.B. Bernstein traveled across the world to India with the plan and dream of finding Major League Baseball's first Indian-born player.

Bernstein actually found two boys named Rinku and Dinesh who he brought back to the U.S. to become baseball pitchers. Seven months later they both became the first Indian-born athletes to ever sign professional sports contracts in the U.S., in any sport.

The contest continues today and is now called the “MLB Million Dollar Arm.”. The next contest expects 500,000+ young men and boys to try out.

Bernstein shares the business side of the “Million Dollar Arm” saga and uses it as a blueprint of how to be successful—not only in business, but also in life.

Whether you are in a B2C or B2B business, selling goods and services is not easy. Sales leaders must have an ability to act quickly and be an expert in many categories. Most importantly, they must be impervious to rejection.

Using experiences from his unique background as case studies, J.B. Bernstein shares the six roadblocks to closing sales and how to bust through them. The presentation ends with an interactive sales challenge from Bernstein to the audience. These exercises will leave attendees inspired and thinking of new ways to redefine maximizing sales in their own organizations.

Big ideas do not magically appear. There is no hidden storage unit of pre-generated ideas locked away in the recesses of our minds. Good ideas come from a process.

In this marketing-focused program, J.B. Bernstein shares the steps in his revolutionary “Idea Generation System.” This presentation is complete with cases studies and accomplishments from his career to show the system in action and the results.

Ideas are the lifeblood of business growth, but so few believe they are capable of coming up with them. After this presentation, business leaders walk away with fresh thoughts on how to better foster a culture of big ideas and creativity that can permeate their entire organization.

More importantly, the rank and file leave with not only the belief that big ideas are within their grasp, but also the simple tools to start bringing new ideas and results to their own business.
