The doctors couldn't help him, and despite all the medications they prescribed, his health did not improve. By his mid-20's, deeply frustrated and feeling hopeless, Chris set out to heal himself. On his quest, he learned how food affects the body, the importance of sleep, and why people need to move. These discoveries transformed his life. Conditions which plagued him for years disappeared, and his energy and attitude reached new heights. Amazed at how good he felt, Chris knew he’d found his calling, and needed to share his discoveries.

Today, Chris works with organizations to transform their performance from the inside out. He applies the principles of REST|EAT|MOVE to educate, engage and inspire teams around the world.

Let Chris share practical tools that will guide your entire organization to take immediate action, while inspiring everyone to reach for higher levels of energy, fitness and overall performance.

Capacity - Optimize Talent by Removing Obstacles
As the world speeds-up faster and faster, organizations and their people try to keep up. This pressure to do more with less has reached epidemic levels of concern and organizations are panicking on how to recruit, retain, and attract the best talent for the future. Burnout, low engagement, and overwhelming stress are jeopardizing organizations’ ability to scale and win. As outdated performance models crumble under pressure, internationally recognized health and performance expert Chris Johnson shows you how to build and protect your most valuable asset—YOUR PEOPLE. Think about the organizational impact if your workforce were given fresh capacity to perform, lead, and grow.

Decoding Your Health
Problems sleeping? Acid Reflux? Type-2 diabetes? High Blood Pressure Chronic pain? Low testosterone? Thyroid issues? Weight gain? Stress? Overmedicated? Your doctor ordered a blood test, do you understand the numbers? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, now is the time to understand what makes the human body healthy. Your body is talking to you and it’s time to learn how to listen.

Speech Topics

Corporate Topics:
Without Customers…Ya Got Nothin’!
Every business is dependent upon having customers buy and consume their offerings. In this presentation, you’ll learn how to attract customers by creating an environment for them to buy your offerings as opposed to you “selling them”. When customers want what you have to offer, the sales cycle is compressed allowing you to sell more, at higher margins with less effort. The bottom line is exactly that…the bottom line. You will experience a consistent rise in total revenue, more profit is delivered because more value is delivered, and the sales time and process are dramatically shortened.

The Trilogy of Success
People are consistently looking the keys to success. In this presentation you’ll learn the trilogy of success: Faith, Family and Focus. Understanding how these three foundational principles intertwine and work together allow you to launch yourself to new and higher levels of success. We’re all a product of the choices we’ve made and the actions we taken. Learning to make better, more fundamentally sound choices and implement new and better actions will make a huge difference in your result.

Mastering Personality Types
There are four dominant personality types. We all have a certain level of all four types within us that we call upon depending upon the situations we’re in. Learning about the characteristics and communication styles that they dictate is paramount to achieving at the highest levels. Knowing how to approach each situation with maximum effect comes from being able to identify the other person’s type and communicate in a manner that they not only accept but more importantly embrace. You will learn to see, hear and feel the keys that differentiate the various types. Once you learn this information, you’re ability to create greater depth of relationships will follow.

Essential Tools to Attract and Retain Customers
There are many new innovations that have come to market recently that stand the potential to help you grow your business by saving you time, energy and money. Learning about the essential tools is the first step to putting them into action. Many of these high-tech high-touch tools keep you “top of mind” with your prospects and customers. Business success today comes down to ever-increasing levels of relationships. Incorporating the latest and greatest customer acquisition and retention tools only makes sense.

Bio

If your sales and marketing teams aren't taking advantage of social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and others as intelligence gathering tools; if you're not using the secret search tricks that Google and other websites provide to learn more about prospects, clients, and competitors - THEN YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON BIG TIME BUSINESS. Considered one of THE world's foremost Sales Intelligence thought leaders, Sam Richter takes something everyone intuitively knows - Knowledge Is Power! - and turns it into reality.

Magic J

Magic Johnson

 American basketball player who led the National Basketball Association (NBA) Los Angeles Lakers to five championships.

Speaker's Bio

Magic Johnson, byname of Earvin Johnson, Jr., (born August 14, 1959, Lansing, Michigan, U.S.), American basketball player who led the National Basketball Association (NBA) Los Angeles Lakers to five championships.

The son of an autoworker, Johnson earned his nickname “Magic” in high school for his creative and entertaining ballhandling. He was an intense competitor who led his high school team to a state championship in 1977 and led Michigan State University to the National Collegiate Athletic Association championship in 1979—handing Larry Bird and Indiana State its only defeat of that season. Johnson left Michigan State after his sophomore season and was selected by the Lakers with the first overall pick in the 1979 NBA draft.

Johnson achieved his greatest success in the professional ranks, where he guided the Lakers to NBA championships in 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987, and 1988. His first championship came in his rookie season, and in the sixth and title-clinching game of the 1979–80 NBA finals Johnson remarkably played all five positions to secure the Lakers’ championship, helping him become the first rookie to win the NBA finals Most Valuable Player (MVP) award. He was also named the league MVP in 1987, 1989, and 1990. He played point guard and brought new versatility to that position. At 6 feet 9 inches (2.06 metres), he was a dangerous scorer from anywhere on the court and a capable rebounder, averaging 19.5 points and 7.2 rebounds per game over his 13-year career. However, he was best known for innovative no-look and bounce passes and a knack for making big plays in the clutch. The battles for league supremacy between Johnson’s Lakers and Bird’s Boston Celtics spurred a new era of fan interest and NBA prosperity.

On November 7, 1991, Johnson shocked the basketball world—and made headlines around the globe—when he announced that he was HIV-positive and was immediately retiring from the sport. At the time of his initial retirement, Johnson was the NBA’s all-time leader in assists (9,921; broken in 1995 by John Stockton). He returned to basketball to participate in the 1992 All-Star Game (of which he was the MVP) and in the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games, where he helped the NBA-superstar-laden “Dream Team” capture the men’s basketball gold medal. Later he served briefly as head coach of the Lakers (1994), and he also played with the team for a portion of the 1995–96 season. He was a minority owner of the franchise from 1994 to 2010.

After his retirement from basketball, Johnson became an extremely successful entrepreneur—with estimated holdings of approximately $500 million as of 2015—and a prominent HIV/AIDS activist. In 2012 he was part of an ownership group that purchased the Los Angeles Dodgers. He rejoined the Lakers franchise as an adviser to Jeanie Buss, the team’s owner, in 2017. After spending just weeks in that role, he was promoted to president of basketball operations, giving Johnson control of the Lakers’ front office. Johnson was named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history in 1996, and he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002.

Richard Branson

  • THE FOUNDER & CHAIRMAN OF THE VIRGIN EMPIRE
  • ENTREPRENEUR
  • AUTHOR
Richard Branson
We've had the pleasure of working with Richard in the past on a variety of fantastic events.
Bio

Richard Branson is the eccentric and outspoken chairman of Virgin Atlantic Airways and the founder of Virgin Records, which he recently sold for an unprecedented $1 billion. Famous for his daring entrepreneurial style, he oversees the Virgin Group, Ltd. an extensive conglomerate encompassing over 360 companies, including recording studios, a travel business, publishing entities, and retail industries worldwide. An experienced daredevil, Branson has raced powerboats across the ocean and has set distance records in hot air balloons. His unconventional style of living is only a part of his undeniable knack for beating impossible odds in business and in life.

Virgin started when Branson was the tender age of 20. In 1972, soon after he opened a Virgin record store on Oxford Street in London, the young entrepreneur opened a recording studio in Oxfordshire and Virgin Records was born. Mike Oldfield was the first artist to sign and his album, Tubular Bells, sold more than five million copies. During his ownership of Virgin Records, Branson turned it into a major success, signing such big names as Steve Winwood, Paula Abdul, Belinda Carlisle, Genesis, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Simple Minds, The Human League, Bryan Ferry, Culture Club, Janet Jackson, and The Rolling Stones. In 1992, he sold the Virgin Music Group record labels, music publishing, and recording studios to Thorn EMI in a $1 billion deal.

Branson eventually moved into other industries. He started Virgin Atlantic Airways, which has become the second largest English long haul international airline, and operates a fleet of aircraft to New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Orlando, Boston, San Francisco, Washington, Dallas, and Tokyo. He also created Virgin Mobile, USA, the fastest growing company in history to reach $1 billion in revenue.

Since 1985, he has been involved in a number of record-breaking land and air speed and distance attempts. In 1986, with his boat Virgin Atlantic Challenger II, he crossed the Atlantic Ocean in the fastest recorded time ever. One year later, Virgin Atlantic Flyer - a hot air balloon - was the first to cross the Atlantic Ocean and was the largest ever flown at 2.3 million cubic feet capacity, reaching speeds in excess of 130 mph. Again In 1991, Branson crossed the Pacific Ocean from Japan to Arctic Canada, breaking all existing records with speeds of up to 245 mph in a balloon measuring 2.6 million cubic feet.
Branson has guest starred on several television shows, including Friends, Baywatch and Only Fools and Horses. He also starred in The Rebel Billionaire.

In addition to his business activities, Branson backs a number of charities, including The Healthcare Foundation. He became Sir Richard Branson after Queen Elizabeth knighted him in 1999 for his business ability and enthusiasm for the spirit of Britain.
