The Psychology of Illusion and The Power of Perspective
Vinh Giang

Award-winning entrepreneur and magician Vinh Giang will take your career to new heights by showing you how to cultivate the right influences that make the difference between success and mediocrity. With humor, heart and captivating showmanship, he will demonstrate the power of perspective and how people are fooled by illusions. You’ll learn creative ways to collaborate, craft new solutions rather than remain in problems, and uncover the secret to reimagining and overcoming the impossible. Giang will teach you his tricks for suspending old belief systems, unlocking mindsets, innovating and taking deliberate and definitive action. And yes, it might require a little magic!


HACKONOMY
Bonin Bough

Go on a journey to discover how to hack your business, your way of doing things and ultimately yourself with Bonin Bough, one of the foremost-awarded marketing executives in his field. Most think the word “hacker” sounds negative, but not all hackers are bad. Hackers can create immense value by breaking things, whether it’s breaking from tradition, process or the way you’ve always done it. Throughout his illustrious career as one of the youngest C-suite executives in a Fortune 50 company, Bough has spearheaded some of the largest global marketing campaigns across digital, mobile, television, print and experiential, including the premier of the first-ever 3D printed food product – the customizable, real-time 3D-printed Oreo at SXSW. Bough uses these experiences to explain how the new hacking economy – or “hackonomy” – is spreading quickly across industries and even changing less obvious parts of human life while exploring the huge impact of all of this on your marketing.


Growing Up Wild
Forrest Galante

The road to success is not always easy or straight. Forrest Galante knows that first hand. Born in the U.S., but raised in Zimbabwe, Africa, Galante faced daily obstacles in a place where survival and adventure are simply part of life. But those challenges were nothing compared to the hardship his family would encounter as the country spiraled into political turmoil and violence. Eventually forced to leave, they returned to California with next to nothing and Galante had to navigate what seemed like a different world. Instead of settling into a normal life and leaving his history behind, he used lessons learned about persistence to drive his desire to achieve the impossible. His passion for nature and the unknown led him to the most remote regions across 46 countries. He’s dodged the biggest storm in Australia’s history, caught giant crocodiles, dove with great white sharks and he holds four world records for spearfishing. He will motivate you to learn from what life brings your way and move with tenacity toward accomplishments you can be proud of for a lifetime. Let Galante inspire you to embrace everyday lessons as fuel to reach your ultimate destination.
