Major League pitcher Jim Abbott was born with only one hand, but he adapted, overcame adversity and found excellence in his 10-year professional pitching career. Abbott knows that to continue to move towards our goals we must be willing to adapt, to change, and to mold ourselves in order to meet the obstacles in our own way. Using ADAPT as an acronym, Abbott strings together a powerful set of words that provide five incredible strategies to help audiences reach their fullest potential.
A - Adjustability
D - Determination
A - Accountability
P - Perseverance
T - Trust

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.

This is a less formal, Inside-the-Actors-Studio type of event. Burns responds to questions from moderator on all his films (or film-specific) and issues in history and contemporary American culture. Audience Q&A to conclude if wanted.

In a very engaging and humorous presentation, Costas shares with audiences his insight into today’s current events and his experiences in the sports and broadcasting worlds. He is happy to take questions from the audience.

During an intimate, moderated interview format, your audience will be astonished with Mariano Rivera’s candor as he shares his story of the championships, the bosses, the rivalries, and the struggles of being a Latino baseball player in the United States and of maintaining Christian values in professional athletics. Rivera discusses his drive to win; shares secrets behind his legendary composure; and stories recounting the development of his skills. He transports his audience with the untold, pitch-by-pitch account of the ninth inning of Game 7 in the 2001 World Series; and why the lowest moment of his career became one of his greatest blessings.
