A real-life account of how Greg Gadson helped build an organization from scratch, and through his personal leadership style, inspired the soldiers that ultimately saved his life.

Overcoming adversity implies we have come through some difficulties and everything turned out okay. We are looking at adversity as a negative. However, prevailing through the challenge means we look at the adversity as a positive. A purposeful challenge meant for us to learn and grow from, not just overcome, but to prevail—coming out better than we were before. Greg Gadson shares how his challenges have led him to the unexpected: winning two Super Bowl rings, acting in a movie and just taking on life’s challenges.

As part of this dynamic presentation, Garcia will share the story of Dr. Charles Kelman, the eye surgeon who invented the modern day procedure for cataract surgery. In order to achieve his goals and make his groundbreaking discoveries, Dr. Kelman followed a daily technique that utilized the power of his subconscious mind to drive him to exceptional achievements. "You must write down all your dreams, prioritize the top ten into a life plan, and look at them three times a day," says Dr. Kelman. "This way they become ingrained in both your conscious and subconscious mind." Garcia will reveal how you too can implement Dr. Kelman’s techniques to achieve your life goals—and he’ll share many other examples of individuals that have followed these strategies with extraordinary results.

To help audiences create their own life plan, Garcia has created a FREE web-based interactive software program that he provides the audience. Once at the site, individuals will be guided through a series of questions about their future goals in ten areas of their life. Once their top 10 goals are written down, then the software program assists them to develop navigational action steps to achieve each one. To inspire them to take action, they will receive "reminder emails" to their computers three times a day.

Over the last ten years, Richard has been working with some of the world’s most successful sports and business organisations; from Olympic and Paralympic coaches to football league managers, golf pros and cricket teams. His work has been centred on developing resilience in athletes. It is work that he has translated into his work in high performing corporate environments where the ability to risk, learn and develop are vital. Richard argues that it is often some of the most naturally gifted who struggle most with resilience and that having the confidence to fail and to overcome major adversity is critical if we are to get the best out ourselves and our people. In this session, Richard will use his unique insights into human development and success to help audiences understand what holds people back and how to unlock their full potential.

There are some lessons at the halfway point that come through when you are up at bat. That’s the way Leeza describes her insights into many of her winning formulas for success. These are some strategies she’s employed along the way that have consistently scored hits and she’ll share them, along with the number one quality successful people must have! Leeza brings her experience as a talk show host, best-selling author, social entrepreneur, and red carpet survivor to men and women who want to hold their head high as they claim the prize

Leeza speaks to anyone who needs any kind of LIFE SUPPORT…people who want to break through to the next plateau and those who may need her hold the mirror up for them to see who they really are.

A good friend is someone who will play your music back to you when you forget your song... Leeza will not only do that, but she’ll teach you new steps to the dance! If life is a test, Leeza can help you cram for the final. She says a bend in the road is not the end of the road, and her “Lessons at the Halfway Point” are audience favorites!

Leeza talks about her southern values and how they helped her build a decades-long career in the entertainment business as one of the industry's most well-loved celebrities. From her days behind the anchor desk on Entertainment Tonight to her talk show and her win on Celebrity Apprentice, she used her trademark kindness to get ahead in a business where cutthroat cruelty reigns. From being a “recovering redneck” to red carpet-ready, Leeza’s witty insights are packed with take-home value.

Most of us think we know what would make us happy and that our only problem is getting it. But research in psychology, economics, and neuroscience shows that people are not very good at predicting what will make them happy, how happy it will make them, and how long that happiness will last. Is the problem that we can’t really imagine what our futures will hold? Is the problem that our friends and family mislead us about the true sources of human happiness? Yes, and yes again. Professor Gilbert will explain why, when it comes to finding happiness, we can’t always trust our imaginations or our mothers.

Floss daily, save for retirement, and don’t wear plaid pants before or after Labor Day. Most experts tell us what to decide but they don’t tell us how, and so the moment we face a novel decision—should I move to Cleveland or Anchorage? Become an architect or a pastry chef?—we’re lost. Is there any way to know how to do precisely the right thing at all possible times? In fact, science provides a simple method for making decisions. Although that method is easy to understand, most of us don’t apply it in our daily lives, and so we make a host of mistakes that we later regret. New research in psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics explains why.
