Keynote Speakers


On Monday, March 19th, former FBI "spycatcher," Joe Navarro will lend insight into understanding the nonverbal cues of those around you and provide tips on fine-tuning your body language to more effectively interact with others. 

Not many can say they were personally approached to join the FBI, but this is exactly what happened to Joe Navarro while he was working as a police officer at the tender age of 23. He accepted their offer and became one of the youngest agents ever to join the renowned investigative agency.

Joe spent the next 25 years at the FBI, working both as an agent and supervisor in the areas of counterintelligence and counterterrorism. Through his work he was able to study, refine and apply the science of non-verbal communications. His acumen in this field and his success as a spy-catcher, led Joe to begin training FBI agents and the intelligence community.

Retiring from the FBI in 2003, and meeting overwhelming demand for his notable insights into human behavior, Joe has dedicated himself to speaking and consulting with major corporations worldwide.



On Tuesday, March 20th, Aron Ralston will take you inside the story that captured international headlines.

An experienced climber and avid outdoorsman, Aron was canyoneering alone in Utah when he became trapped between two boulders in a remote location for more than five days, ultimately freeing himself by severing his own arm with a pocketknife. His harrowing tale captivated global news outlets and remains one of the most incredible and extreme survival stories of all time. 
Aron recounts his ordeal in searing detail in his New York Times best-selling book, “Between a Rock and a Hard Place,” which inspired the major motion picture, “127 Hours,” starring James Franco.

On stage, he brings his gripping story to life – and audiences to the edge of their seats. With great candor and humility, Aron reflects on his remarkable triumph over insurmountable odds, and shares the lessons he learned about the importance of examining one’s priorities and outlook on life. Take away a true appreciation for the power of the human spirit and the value of relationships to overcome life’s challenges, no matter how large or daunting one’s “boulder” may be.
