From his then-unprecedented guerrilla marketing and branding techniques, to the continuously innovative ways in which he uses social media, brand integration and his expertise in pop culture, Daymond John remains a cutting edge business strategist. A best-selling author, Daymond John entered the literary world with his first book "Display of Power: How FUBU Changed a World of Fashion, Branding and Lifestyle" which tells the story of his awe inspiring journey and provides a roadmap for those who aspire to succeed in business and in life.

Bio

Erik Wahl is an internationally recognized artist, TED speaker, and No. 1 bestselling author. His breakthrough experience as an artist and entrepreneur has translated into making him into one of the most sought-after corporate speakers on the circuit today. On stage, Erik’s keynote experience creates a dynamic multidimensional metaphor for how to systematically embrace innovation and risk. His message: disruption is the new normal and businesses must embrace creativity in a wholesale fashion, or risk being left behind. Erik’s presentation inspires organizations to be increasingly agile and outlines how to use disruption as a competitive advantage. Some companies will be disrupted others will choose to be the disruptor. Choose wisely. His new book, THE SPARK AND THE GRIND, activates the essential components translating ideas into action. The book rose to CEO Reads bestseller list within the first week of its launch; his previous book, a bestseller called UNTHINK, was hailed by Forbes Magazine as THE blueprint to actionable creativity, and by Fast Company Magazine as “provocative with a purpose.” His breakthrough thinking has earned praise from top influencers in the realms of art and business. Erik discovered an alarming truth early in his career as a partner in a corporate firm: organizations that encouraged creative thought did better than those that did not put innovation as a priority mission. So he set out to challenge companies to change their way of thinking. In the meantime, inspired by street art, he became an acclaimed graffiti artist—though he has since stopped selling his works for personal gain, and instead uses his art to raise money for charities. His keynote is where his passion for business growth and art dovetail. Erik’s list of clients includes AT&T, Disney, London School of Business, Microsoft, FedEx, Exxon Mobil, Ernst & Young, and XPrize.

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.

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.
