Dr. Ballard shares his conclusions of his numerous expeditions to search for, locate and document sites of historical significance and the emerging science of deep water archeology.

With an equal measure of sincerity and wit, José Manuel Barroso draws on his vast experiences to put the current geopolitical environment into context during this engaging and enlightening presentation. Audience members take away a modern and rationalized understanding of the geopolitical, economic and cultural pressures that must be faced to continue strengthening Europe’s global influence, create stability for the world’s citizens, and to promote a growth environment for multinational business.

During his tenure as President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso earned global praise for his leadership and guidance of 28 nation states toward a burgeoning and more peaceful future. He offers earnest and unique insights regarding the future of the European Union, and with gravitas and humor, shares with audience members the lessons he has learned and challenges faced. Expanding on his belief that the forces of solidarity within the EU, both economically and politically, are stronger than the forces of fragmentation, Barroso analyzes cultural differences, security, global economies and Germany’s role as an economic powerhouse, and examines how these powerful issues and opportunities could impact your organization.

In this moderated discussion, José Manuel Barroso examines subject matters such as: the future of the European Union, international security, the global economy, geopolitical trends, multicultural solidarity, emerging markets, and major nations of global concern such as America, China, Russia, Germany and Brazil. This presentation is focused and tailored to meet the specific needs of your audience.

In order to achieve real diversity and inclusion within our organization we must adopt a world view that equally values all generations, cultures and perspectives. Chris Bashinelli’s all-inclusive approach to relationship building has been cultivated for 30+ years, starting with his “Stoop” in the heart of Brooklyn, where his childhood friends shared a combined total of more than 13 nationalities. In this signature keynote, Chris drives home the ease of relationship building with a personal, yet universal method he’s applied everywhere from farming with mystics in Uganda to living with nomads in Mongolia.

Audience members will learn the three essential steps from the “Stoop” which serve as the basis for profound personal transformation and deep connection with others - Awareness, Acceptance, and Courage! These steps enable people to strengthen their relationship with themselves, co-workers, family, friends – and even those with whom we have no seeming connection - be it a 600 pound Japanese Sumo Wrestler or our next-door neighbor. When we make that human connection and move people from the category of “them” to “us”, anything is possible.

There’s never been a more important time to richly hone the relationships that transform lives, bridge gaps, connect generations, and empowers our life experience. By opening our world view we are far more powerful than we could ever be on our own - be it the exchange of tribal knowledge between an experienced team member and a social media-savvy young employee, or the shared core values of an Oklahoma farmer and a Mongolian herdsmen.

What's surprising is that our ability to authentically connect with our clients and friends has very little to do with them, and almost everything to do with our perspective. We see the world not as it is, but as we are. The great news is that means we have the power to deepen our relationships with others at any moment, all we have to do is shift our perspective! Building better relationships doesn’t necessarily mean knowing perfectly how to bow, shake hands, or say hello in every culture, it simply means bringing an open and accepting mindset to all of our interactions.

This message hits home for so many who reach back to remember their own beginnings and recognize the foundational wisdom in creating life-long connections. Bring the transformational lessons of the “Stoop” to your next audience.

What is your Step “Z”, the goal you feel will truly bring your life meaning? It could be a new client, a new partner, or a new home. What if you could arrive at that destination before you even begin the journey? We tend to be so fixated on our goal that we forget to examine how we are viewing ourselves. We feel that if our circumstances were different our goal would be attainable. In reality, we can only go as far as our shadow will let us - it’s not the circumstances that have to change, but us.

Bash walks attendees through the scientific method for recognizing and reducing their most limiting beliefs, thereby opening the doorway to a whole new world. With total clarity, he emphasizes that the swiftest way to get from where you are, to where you want to be, is to be there first - on the inside. The best way to get from Step “A” to Step “Z” is to Start at Step “Z”. It may seem counterintuitive, but your best chance at achieving your goal is to imagine it is already accomplished. Step firmly with faith into the shoes you were meant to fill - and live, breathe, work and act from that place.

From moderating a major United Nations event in Brazil at 23 years old with no prior experience, to leading a National Geographic Expedition in Mongolia when nearly all funding had been pulled one month before production, Bash shows how when we change our mind, we can change our world. The key to creating success lies not in getting what we want, but in realizing that we already have everything we need to live a life of great meaning. When we connect our ultimate goal to a mission that benefits others, and have unwavering faith in our potential, we will find the inspiration necessary to reach our Step “Z”.

He can’t jump very high. He’s not very fast. In fact, he fails the ‘eyeball’ test in nearly every basketball category. And yet, Shane Battier has proved to be invaluable to every team he has ever suited up for. In this impassioned and inspiring presentation, Battier shares with audiences the ways in which he believes sacrifice, ownership, embracing failure, championship professionalism, and a Hunger Games mentality contribute to the powerful and significant intersection of art and commerce. A genuine team player, he knows that champions are often made when no one is looking and encourages audience members to always do what it takes for the team to succeed—whether their efforts receive recognition or not. Stats don’t always tell the story of value, and Battier is living proof.

What can I control? How do my passion and distinguished skills add value to my organization? In the face of discouragement and desolation, these are some of the questions that Shane Battier often asked himself in his endeavors toward success. He shares his personal story with audiences and expounds on how factors such as dedication, resilience and tenacity ultimately rendered Battier an invaluable member of championship winning teams. Deemed the “No-Stats All-Star” by best-selling author Michael Lewis in a New York Times Magazine cover story, audience members are emboldened to apply Battier’s strategy, vision and leadership skills in their own professional careers in this thought-provoking and impactful presentation.

Paul Begala has seen it all—government united, government divided, gridlock and clear sailing. He now draws on his extensive experience to give audiences an understanding of the impact of today’s political landscape on such issues as the economy, budget deficit, health care, immigration, the future of Social Security and Medicare, U.S. foreign policy, the on-going war in Afghanistan, the unrest in the Middle East and other critical issues facing the country here at home and around the world.

Go behind the scenes in those organizations renowned for inventive and imaginative service and you will find leaders with exceptional practices and special competencies. These courageous leaders understand the culture and leader-follower relationships that are most suited for resourcefulness in delivering value-unique experiences that awe, not just wow. Leadership is an echo that best resonates in a setting of responsible freedom, compelling cause, supportive connections, infectious curiosity and affirming excellence. Dr. Bell’s riveting keynote uses profiles of successful innovation leaders who foster frontline ingenuity and nurture opportunities for breakthroughs and discoveries. Based on his best-selling book, Take Their Breath Away, this powerful presentation leaves audiences with fresh insights and clear instructions on ways to stimulate, nurture and cultivate innovative service.
