Until a couple years ago, people thought they knew who Bruce Jenner was: The world’s greatest athlete. Head of one of its most famous families. They had no idea the burdens he was carrying or the secrets he was hiding. Revealing those secrets to the world—and relieving herself of their weight in the process—finally allowed Caitlyn to be her true self. In this inspiring, no-holds-barred presentation, Caitlyn Jenner chronicles the journey of self-discovery that helped her to, at long last, live an authentic life. And she inspires audience members to do the same, convincing them that only when they’re honest with themselves and others can they be truly happy—and truly capable of making a difference in the lives of others.

Johansson calls for a complete overhaul of how an organization delivers on its diversity and inclusion promise. He outlines the steps an organization must take to turn diversity and inclusion into a strategic force. It is a perfect follow-up talk after Diversity Drives Innovation.

In this keynote, presented in his charismatic style, The Shark, Daymond John, takes audience members on an inspiring, emotional rollercoaster ride. They will hear, first-hand, how a man, with no formal business training whatsoever, went from driving cabs and waiting tables at Red Lobster to creating a global fashion empire with retail sales exceeding four billion dollars to date, and a starring role on ABC’s hit reality business show, Shark Tank. Daymond entertains and awes audience members with true-life tales of his incredible successes and numerous failures. Equally important, however, he motivates, inspires, and teaches them how to set and go after their own goals with newfound focus and determination.

Audience members will be galvanized as they realize they have been setting goals for themselves all of their lives—whether they realized it or not! What’s more, to their surprise, many attendees will learn that the goals they have been setting have been self-destructive.

Unlike some “motivational speakers”, rather than spitting-out tiresome “I can make it, so can you” clichés, Daymond shares the exact goal-setting strategies that he attributes to his success and teaches audience members how to incorporate them into their endeavors. This keynote will challenge attendees to exercise their brains in a way that cultivates a positive, goal-setting mindset.

This keynote is absolutely terrific for: salespeople, students, business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs and just about anyone who wants more out of their personal and/or professional endeavors.

Capacity is your secret weapon to winning the talent war. Discover how to improve focus, enhance energy, and push through obstacles to achieve your big wins.

Audience members will learn how to assess their current capacity, recognize overwhelm, exhaustion, and impaired motivation. They’ll learn how to quickly fix the issues affecting them with foundational behaviors to improve mental function, boost energy, and deepen motivation.

 

Diabetes, Alzheimer's, and cancer are all on the rise. In 2020 40% of the US population will be obese…yet it’s not too late to rejuvenate your body, refresh your mind, and develop robust health in your 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and beyond. A highly engaging, insight packed keynote that perfectly answers the biggest questions facing audiences today.

By contrasting the questions: “how long do you think you’re going to live?” vs “how long do you want to live?” Chris instantly captures attention as he reveals the tremendous healing and restorative powers everyone has but seldom uses. He demonstrates how to flip the genetic switch for long life and build healthy, disease resistant bodies.

When Ms. Rice’s father founded Johnson Publishing Company in 1942 thanks to a $500 loan, he sought to create an equivalent magazine to Life that would tell the story of the black experience in America. Over the next 75 years, in both vivid prose as well as indelible pictures, the pages of Ebony and Jet captured the stories of African-Americans, from the famous to the family next door. 

Ms. Rice will tell the story of how JPC helped shape the Civil Rights movement by informing and inspiring its audience, a mission which continues to reach millions of readers each month. Her speech will be punctuated by material from the company’s invaluable media archives – a treasure house of more than six decades worth of iconic cultural treasures, including feature interviews, photo profiles and performances from celebrities, newsmakers and famous Black Americans in the sciences, business, sports, politics, culture, civil rights, education, medicine, and more. Ms. Rice’s presentation tells a comprehensive and compelling story of America, its past and its present.

As Chairman of Johnson Publishing Company (JPC), the largest African-American owned publishing firm in the United States, Linda Johnson Rice will take us through the choices she made to implement bold changes at her iconic company during a pivotal moment in its history. Learn how Rice made the critical business decisions to transition from CEO to Chairman, hire female senior
executive talent, and navigate the changing media landscape to maintain relevancy and market share. Leave the meeting inspired to embrace change in your professional life!

For many young people – especially young women – examples of large accomplishments are ubiquitous in popular culture. Yet, examples of how to reach them are not. Linda’s mother and father reached the heights of success and became examples of African American achievement for millions, especially to Linda as a young girl. More importantly, however, they gave her concrete examples of the hard work and the many middle steps it takes to reach such success. They set her on a journey to college and graduate school, and taught her to work her way up from the smallest jobs within the family company to ones of increasing responsibility and importance. Linda shares her story for younger audiences, particularly those in high school, about how to find the mentors that guide the way to success. And she encourages young people to earn the hard-won qualities necessary to realize their full potential. It is a story meant for strivers of all ages, and an inspirational message for everyone who dreams big and dares to try.
