From starting a boat wash and wax business while in college to running a million dollar company and restaurant empire, Bill Rancic has had to confront the same ups and downs that any entrepreneur must along the road to success. By adopting strategies that rejected conventional wisdom, Bill was able to separate himself from the pack while he crafted a personal and professional brand that has established him as a household name. Today, audiences have the opportunity to learn how he did it directly from the source.

Providing ground-level perspective into what it takes to develop an idea, build a business out of it, and strengthen it to last, Bill shares takeaways that are immediately applicable to anyone who wants to increase their return on investment, improve market share, or reap the benefits of a more productive, motivated workforce.

In this talk, Professor Lisa Randall discusses how the scientific method can be applied to the business world by examining how scientists develop and try out new ideas, what they mean by progress, how they treat failure, how they deal with resistance to new ideas, and the constructive interplay of competition and collaboration. The audience will leave with a new approach and takeaways on how scientific practices can help businesses foster creativity and innovation within their companies.

Despite advertising to investors to use a passive buy-and-hold approach to stocks, data shows this is poor way to generate wealth even long term. The random nature of stock prices means that inflation-adjusted returns significantly underperform investment targets and exposes investors to greater risk than they realize.

Active trading is NOT stock picking or “day-trading” rather it is the use of equity options to reduce the cost of owning any given investment, which reduces risk and increases the probability that any given investment will increase in value. Dylan Ratigan talks about this strategy and how it has yielded a 16% higher inflation adjusted returns since 2000, with 2/3 the risk of a passive fund.

As founder of Helical Holdings, Ratigan knows first hand the ability for modern resource technology to secure the world. In this speech he tells stories of his travels in China, Myanmar, the Middle East and rural North America to provide evidence of just how valuable large networks of solar powered, hydroponic farming systems can be to resolve poverty, create jobs and improve health.

 

The Rhythm of Success is a one-of-a-kind program designed to challenge and inspire organizations to discover their untapped potential. The format is fast-paced, entertaining, and as the secrets of the world’s undisputed international language of music are revealed, full of surprises.

No matter what kind of organization—from small companies to large corporations—employees at all levels will tune up to a better future by becoming more collaborative, productive and ultimately more profitable. This multimedia “keynote concert” experience is sure to open or close your meeting on a dynamic high note.

This presentation takes your audience on a deep dive into the role of “Melody” within music and its power as the central message to bring life to your products and services. When leaders “sing” a better future, inspiration resonates across the entire company’s culture.

Have you ever heard a great-sounding band or orchestra where everyone is a soloist? It doesn’t exist. For over a decade, the Gallup polls reveal that four out of five employees are disengaged in their work, costing the U.S. economy over $500 billion annually in lost revenue.

The Keynote Maestro shares personal stories of how minorities and women have opened doors to his ongoing success from being hired by Brazilian producer Sergio Mendes at age 23 to being the only white guy in the all black band named "Earth, Wind and Fire.” In addition to his collaborations with Dr. Martin Luther King’s daughter, Yolanda King as guest author in Open My Eyes, Open My Soul alongside Stevie Wonder, Muhammad Ali, Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Maya Angelou, he’s played the GRAMMY’s with Prince, recorded with Madonna for her major motion picture debut, Evita and toured the world to packed stadiums with Latin rock legend Carlos Santana.

Freddie Ravel drives home the message that when we embrace teamwork and inclusion, our collective Melodies, Harmonies and Rhythms achieve the ultimate SCORE—a world where human potential is raised and diversity drives organizations to gain the distinct advantage needed in today's hyper-competitive marketplace.

Illuminating the properties of Human Harmonics to resolve conflict and create breakthroughs, this program will help your team learn how to better listen, engage and achieve collaborative success.

What does it take to make your mark? Even if you don’t aspire to fame or fortune, most of us have some urge to create, some desire to make a difference, or at least some hope that when all is said and done, we will have made some unique contribution to the world that says we were here. So why do so few of us realize our creative potential? For some, there is no shortage of good ideas—but for some reason they never make it out of our heads. Others have plenty of motivation to make things happen—but they are never sure how or where to begin. It takes originality to close those gaps. Originality is the ability to find great ideas for improving the world around you and putting them into action. And in a helpful ironic twist, originality is much more common—and much more accessible—than we think. This talk shares the science of originality and the practical steps that individuals can take to bring their ideas to life and that leaders can use to build cultures of productive creativity.

Call it the paradox of the connected workforce: If it is easier than ever to connect with our colleagues, customers and collaborators, then why do we still find it so challenging to actually work together and get things done? Many of us spend the majority of our working hours in meetings, on the phone or responding to emails, yet if we crunch the numbers, we often have little return to show for that substantial time investment. That’s because collaboration is inefficient and culture is hard to get right. Data shows that in many organizations, the most helpful employees are suffering from collaborative overload, and so-called “star performers” often do little to help their colleagues. At the same time, despite leadership’s best efforts to be mission-driven and values-focused, developing a strong workplace culture is still more of a mystery than an established practice supported by analysis and insights. “Collaboration” and “culture” are big buzzwords for a reason—when done right, they can make work more productive and more meaningful. This talk shows how researchers and industry leaders are turning to data and analytics for insights about how organizations and communities can work together better.

Much has been made lately about the importance of having meaningful work, both for our own well-being and for our organizations’ success. But what exactly do we mean when we talk about meaningful work? This talk unpacks that important buzzword to reveal the four roads to more fulfilling careers—Work is more meaningful when: 1. It leads to clear and tangible results, be they finished work products or people we have helped; 2. It offers financial, social and psychological rewards that align with our values and goals; 3. It fosters a sense of community and enables valuable relationships, both in the office and at home; and 4. It resonates with our identity, our values and the people we would like to be. For general audiences, this framework is especially relevant for anyone interested in getting more from work than just a paycheck, whether they are just entering the workforce, considering a career change or trying to make the most of the job they have. Within organizations, this talk offers insights about how leaders can motivate employees, improve engagement and strengthen culture, and how employees can craft their work (and lives) to be more meaningful.
