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.

No one battles cancer alone. In solo and joint appearances alike with his wife, E! News’ red carpet host Giuliana Rancic, a husband shares what it was like to confront what had once been previously considered unimaginable when the one he cares about most was given a heartbreaking diagnosis that fundamentally altered the lives of their family forever.

For a couple whose challenges with infertility had already been documented as the stars of E!’s Giuliana and Bill, their lives were further turned upside down after Giuliana announced during a live taping of TODAY that in the midst of fertility treatments, doctors had detected breast cancer. In the years ahead, they would deal with multiple surgeries and miscarriages, loving and leaning on one another when they needed each other most. Their stories of what it was like to navigate those emotions at the time and how they endured to eventual recovery will inspire audiences and give hope to others in their time of need.

Giuliana Rancic is an award-winning entertainment journalist, style and beauty expert, and reality show star with over 10 million followers across her social media platforms. She provides the latest celebrity scoops and most relevant fashion advice and health tips to millions of Americans each week as she has given so many a front row seat to every major E! red carpet event for over the past decade. On stages today she continues to enchant audiences as she dishes on all things pop culture and sets the real-life scenes the cameras never captured of how she achieved her dream of becoming one of the top female entertainment journalists in the world.

In 2012, Giuliana Rancic heard those previously unthinkable words, “You have breast cancer.” At such a young age, it was a pronouncement that was compounded by others at a time when she and her husband, fellow entrepreneur, TV personality, and author Bill Rancic, were struggling to start a family in the midst of issues with infertility, all of which was documented for the world to witness during the taping of E!’s Giuliana and Bill. Today, after many setbacks and tears shed along the way, Giuliana discusses the struggle that so many women continue to endure. Through a combination of grace, strength, and compassion, Giuliana has inspired millions of mothers and daughters, sisters and wives and those who love them.  Giuliana Rancic’s journey is one that brings light and hope to others in search of it.

No one battles cancer alone. In this joint appearances alike with her husband, entrepreneur, TV Personality and author Bill Rancic, the couple shares what it was like to confront what had once been previously considered unimaginable when their family was given a heartbreaking diagnosis that fundamentally altered their lives forever.

This talk is a sweeping overview of how the universe, the galaxy and the solar system have developed, as well as the critical role that dark matter—matter that doesn’t have any discernible interactions with light—has played. As we reflect on cultural, political and environmental changes to the planet today, it is useful to have in mind the billions of years of cosmological history that precede it. Professor Randall will present concepts in theoretical physics through a lens of contemporary issues that work to explain the nature of physical reality in a resonating and relevant way with non-scientist audiences.

Disruptions are ever-present and it’s easy for organizations to get out of tune and out of sync. This interactive experience takes your audience into what disruption really sounds like, then transforms that dissonance to resolution. The stunning new composition that is created reveals the wisdom and capability of the audience to achieve their highest potential.

"Music’s the great invitation
For mankind to transcend spoken word
To enhance how we think
And put into sync
So we hear what is mostly not heard.”

Those words, from his number-one charting release, If Music Could Speak, sum up the central message of everything Freddie Ravel. Hailing from parents of Latin American and Eastern European decent, his humble beginnings as a newspaper boy to his rise as an internationally-renowned musical ambassador, Ravel is a living example of the classic American success story, highlighting that our strength and competitive advantage as a nation lie in our diverse cultural roots and experiences. Combined with his unrivaled passion for music and business, Ravel unlocks the minds, hearts and potential of audiences around the world.

For his ongoing contributions to education through music, Ravel was recently knighted by the Knights of St. John, an organization who has championed hospitals and healthcare for over a 1,000 years. In this interactive program, Ravel combines proven solutions towards resolving conflicts and brings meaningful dialogue backed by scientific data and creative musical expression to appeal to the mind, body and soul of your conference participants.

In these turbulent times of global chaos and relentless disruption, Ravel equips your group with tangible results revealing how music heals not only the sick—but the ills of today’s society by bridging cultural divides that allow conversations for peace to prosper and inspire greatness in leaders and entrepreneurs alike.

Serving as a bridge between legendary music artists, business leaders and the Fortune 100, Ravel has co-published works with such visionaries as Earth, Wind and Fire, Carlos Santana, Deepak Chopra and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter, Yolanda King providing over two decades of music-applied-to-life successes in both the public and private sectors.

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.
