Fortunately, at the age of 55, I once more bounced "relentlessly." Our kiosk company has sold over $1 billion and a half of products in the Specialty Retail Industry.

Wayne combines a relentless pit bull mindset with the perfect balance of body, mind, spirit and nutrition. He's got the winning formula."
--Wayne Gorsek, Founder & Chairman
Entrepreneur & Philanthropist
"The Canadian physician Dr. Marion Hilliard wrote that he 'would never wish anyone a life of prosperity and security. These are bound to betray." Instead he wished 'for adventure, struggle, and challenge.' Wayne Root's Relentless is a wonderful account of his own failures and successes, poignantly narrated. What caught my fancy is that Relentless is not just a book about monetary success but about contentment, peace of mind, generosity, health, and friendship — all qualities which remind us that a truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty."
Founder, Marc Faber Limited, Hong Kong

But don't for a moment think we're finished.
Gerald Jay ('Jerry') Sanders is also the subject of a popular Harvard Business School case study on entrepreneurship (The Jerry Sanders Case), which is taught at the graduate business schools of Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Virginia, Kellogg, Cornell, UC and MIT. He also lectures on entrepreneurship and motivation at these leading institutions and at others worldwide. And as Chairman and CEO of SkyTran™ Inc—a cutting-edge NASA Space Act company—Jerry is playing part mad-scientist, part game-changing innovator.
SkyTran™, an elevated, high-speed, low-cost, private rapid transportation system, is The Jetsons finally come to real life.
"Imagine cute little rocket-like vehicles moving about on an elevated guide-way, above the traffic lights and stop signs and the congested mess of traffic below," explained Jerry in a recent interview. "A vehicle that will take you anywhere, without stopping at any station but your own and without waiting for anyone else's schedule. You get into it like you would a taxi, and off you go. And imagine all this at 150 miles an hour."
It seems improbable that one man can fit much more into his days and yet Jerry is also an advisor to the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the co-founder of the Triana Group™ a technology accelerator, and serves as a US State Department accredited Honorary Consul for The Republic of Haiti. Previously, Sanders served as acting General Counsel to Israel's Ministry of Defense and as a special advisor in its Prime Minister's Office.
When he's not changing the future of public transport, advising governments or practicing law he indulges creativity of another kind: making wine at his own vineyard—Shayneh Vista Vineyards, a California Certified Organic Farmers family winery—where he produces some fine Malbec vintages.

Dale Davidson's Keynote Addresses and Speeches
Dale recounts the stories of an all-star cast of life's winners. These "overcomers" were far from the brightest, most athletic or exceptionally gifted people of their day. But because of their determination, dedication and dreams, they are counted as among the most influential people ever! You'll be inspired by the stories of Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Michael Jordan, Orel Hersheiser, Jesse Owens, James Earl Jones, Harry Truman, Ronald Reagan and others. After you've experienced Dale's dynamic delivery of this vitally important message you'll want to step up to the starting line and join life's race!
"Build Your Personal Brand"
You've heard the admonition that "you shouldn't hide your light under a basket." If you wish to be successful in business, in relationships, as a parent or as a spouse, you must be able to clearly define and state your "hidden strengths." To sell your ideas or your sense of authority to others, you must approach important social and business interactions as a salesperson would. Have you clearly defined the presentation?

You'll want to get in front of the right people and start selling right away!
"It Can All Be Brand New!"
This entertaining and powerful presentation will engage your audience with a fascinating premise: if your life seems dull and ordinary, it's because much of what you're sure is true...is just plain wrong! You may perceive life's marvelous, full color scenes in drab grays because you've bought into such faulty logic as "the way to get ahead is to look out for number one!" or "you've got to go along to get along," or "people can't change." These sayings, and others, will be humorously debunked and replaced with wise and balanced approaches that can help make your life vibrant and alive! This is a particularly popular spouse program.
"The Power of Belief"
There has been a resurgence of publicly expressed spirituality throughout the country, particularly in light of world events. Research has shown that people of faith live longer, happier and more productive lives. How much should spirituality be a part of the postmodern world? Dale, who has done graduate work in theology, speaks out for belief in a higher power as a vitally important component of a whole life. In this powerful and popular presentation, Dale takes a non-doctrinal, nondenominational approach to the importance of keeping faith central to relationships in families, with friends and in the community at large.

Inspirational Motivational Speaker
Think Uri Geller, and most people think "spoon bending." However, Uri has an impressive career spanning many decades and is acknowledged as one of the world's leading motivational & inspirational speakers.
Since he made his debut more than thirty years ago, Uri Geller has bent spoons, started broken clocks and watches, and read minds in all six continents. He has been featured in all the world's leading newspapers and magazines, including Time, Newsweek, Forbes, Business Week, US NEWS and World Report, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Observer, New York Times and Washington Post, to name just a few.
There is another side to Uri Geller; he is an exceptional motivational speaker. YPO (Young Presidents Organization) voted him most inspirational and motivational speaker—the runners-up being Dr Henry Kissinger, General Alexander Haig, and President Gerald Ford. He has lectured to a wide variety of audiences in many countries, from a group of US senators and national security executives in the high-security room in the Capitol in Washington, DC to the United Nations. At the invitation of US Senator Claiborne Pell, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, he attended the nuclear arms reduction talks in Geneva and was asked to influence the Soviets to sign the treaty, which they did. Attending with Uri were future Vice-President Al Gore and Anthony Lake, national security adviser and later the head of the CIA.
He has also lectured and conducted seminars to PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the directors of Hallmark, the Royal Geographical Society, Rolls-Royce, Institute of Incorporated Engineers, T Mobile, Moto, Mizuno, Sony, Omron, Novartis, Mensa, Google, Henkel and the Prime Minister's Conference. He has been a guest speaker at the Oxford and Cambridge unions, Yale, Berkeley and Stanford universities, and at the World Economic Forum 2004 in Davos, Switzerland along with dignitaries such as President Bill Clinton, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Steve Forbes. He has also given endless talks and demonstrations for charity.
What to expect from a motivational lecture from Uri Geller:
Uri Geller's lectures are 1-3 hours of motivational, inspirational, empowering, compelling 'infotainment', which leave the audience amazed, mesmerized, motivated, enthusiastic, revitalized and with a much improved positive mental attitude, state of mind & self-belief.
Some of the things audiences have the opportunity to discover:
- The power of positive thinking & how to become a positive thinker, including interactive demonstrations with audience members.
- How to discard limiting beliefs & develop new empowering unshakable self-belief & self-confidence.
- The benefits of peace of mind, and how to achieve it.
- How to develop mental & physical stamina & endurance.
- How to become more successful in business, finances & relationships.
- Jaw dropping demonstrations of what made Uri Geller famous.
- The importance of health, and how to think & become more healthy.
- How to apply the universal law of attraction.
- How to stop smoking NOW! Including a demonstration on stage that this really does work, and any smokers who wish to, have the opportunity to leave the lecture as non-smokers!
- Einstein's theories of relativity & how to apply them to your everyday life to become a more positive & successful person in all aspects of life.
- Techniques of visualization, affirmation & contemplation.
Running time permitting, there is also a questions & answers session which gives the audience the chance to put any questions to Uri to be answered live on stage, and depending on audience size there can be an autograph signing session after the lecture so that those who wish to, can meet Uri in person.
Grammy© Winner and Buddy Holly's
Original Lead Guitarist
Paul McCartney calls him "one of the finest guitarists in the world." His legacy in the music industry as both a live and session guitarist draws comparisons to a handful of the most innovative members of a rarified musical ionosphere with the likes of Les Paul, Chet Atkins, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Phil Keaggy, Duane Allman, Carlos Santana, Eddie Van Halen and Robert Johnson. That's standing in some mighty tall cotton, as people used to say where he grew up in Oklahoma!
His signature riffs and arrangements continue to be part of the soundtrack of life for several generations of music lovers, from Buddy Holly's "It's So Easy" to the Everly Brothers "Lucille," Jan and Dean's "Dead Man's Curve," Kenny Rogers' "Gambler," Asleep at the Wheel's "The Letter That Johnny Walker Read," and so many more.
He traveled with Johnnie Lee Wills as a teenager and was part of the final recording session Bob Wills did with his Texas Playboys. His name was etched forever in rock and roll history on "The Day the Music Died" after a fateful coin toss spared him from flying with Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Richie Valens in the plane that crashed into a lonely Iowa cornfield. His prominence in the music industry continued afterward as A & R Director for Liberty Records country division in Los Angeles, then in a similar position with Metromedia Records in Nashville.
His prestige grew to the point that a few years back, Samick Guitars issued a limited edition Tommy Allsup model, a beautiful full-sized arch-top with gold-plated hardware. Only 500 were custom created, and each is considered a classic today.
Yet today, nearly 60 years after he started his music career, it would be easy to walk past Tommy Allsup in the hardware or garden supply store near his home in Azle, Texas, never knowing of his fame. He would be more comfortable talking about getting his garden ready for planting. He certainly would never tell you about the amazing 10,000 recording sessions with the likes of Willie Nelson, Eddie Cochran, Walter Brennan, Bobby Vee, Johnny Burnette, Julie London, Vickie Carr, George Jones, Mickey Gilley, Hank Thompson, Lorrie Morgan and Asleep at the Wheel—not unless you asked.

Celebrity Speaker David Atwell
David Atwelll with his wife and mogul Sheldon Adelson
Las Vegas Strip Specialist
David Atwell, longtime prominent Las Vegas Hotel/Casino Real Estate Broker and cancer survivor, was the keynote speaker for the Stirling club business group, at Lawry's Steakhouse recently. David told the full house of business professionals, his colorful story of an amazing 35 year Las Vegas real estate career, centering on how he set the record for making the largest LV Strip hotel sale not once, but twice, and how he engineered the sale to Caesars, of the land which later became the famous Forum Shops. David handled the 1988 sale of the Dunes Hotel and Country Club (now Bellagio and CityCenter) to a Japanese billionaire. This was accomplished unbelievably in a court auction 4 hour bidding war with Hilton, Kirk Kirkorian, Steve Wynn, Sheldon Adelson and Caesars. "It was like a dream or a movie, I was the only Broker in a court room full of high powered lawyers representing the biggest and the best in the business" said Atwell. "I had one shot with my client, Mr. Nangaku, and we outbid them all, it was amazing". David, 20 years later, initiated an equally unbelievable record $1.2 Billion sale of the New Frontier Hotel to a major Israeli group, with plans to build a Vegas style replica of their New York Plaza Hotel. His story, including surviving recent throat cancer, is motivational, inspirational and heartwarming.

Keynote and Seminar Topics
Making Headlines — Are You Making News?
No matter how popular online media becomes, there's still an amazing amount of cache in being interviewed or featured in traditional media. Glossy magazines, newspaper, radio shows and TV, both local and national, still carry a lot of weight and can advance and enhance your brand like nothing else. But how do you get the attention of the press? And once you've got their attention... will you be ready? Dana shares strategies for making your media pitch stand out, being media ready AND leveraging the coverage you get.
Image is Everything — Why Looks Matter for Your Brand, Your Products, and Yourself.
Sure, it's what's inside that counts, but if you want your customers to look deeper, you have to draw them in with that first impression. Whether you're an enterprise B2B company, an individual or a start-up with the best new B2C product on the market, your image matters and your company image matters. Dana explains the science behind first impressions and shares examples of brands and images that work and those that don't. She also shares the philosophy behind her own brand and image and talks about how to effectively "fake it 'til you make it".
Don't Fail — Learn. Why Embracing Failure is Just an Excuse.
Somehow failure has become cool. Articles discussing failures of well-known leaders, memes like Fail Fast and even conferences on failure have become all the rage. Dana contends that focusing on failing fast, and studying the failure of others will just lead to more failure. The dictionary definition of failure is "not achieving the desired end or ends" but John Lennon famously said, "Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end." Dana explains how long-term goals for growth, learning, connection and even happiness can change how you see an event that some might call a failure.
START: The #1 Thing You Need to Do to Get to the Finish Line
What is the one thing all successful people have in common? They started. They didn't just sit on the couch and think about their idea or dream about using their talent. They got out there and began doing it. There are million things that can get between you and starting. Dana talks through some common roadblocks to starting and gives real world examples of how to overcome them. From fear, to false priorities to "analysis paralysis" Dana talks through how and when to start and what to expect once you do.
Finding Your Passion and Putting it to Work For You (AND Your Company)
The dictionary definitions of passion include "strong or powerful emotion" and "boundless enthusiasm" yet a 2012 Gallup study found that "70 percent of workers are either actively disengaged or not engaged" at work. So, is it possible to be passionate about your work? Can you really do what you love and make money at it? Can you find parts of the job you have now to engage you or can you infuse something you ARE passionate about into your current job? Dana starts at the beginning and talks through the discovery of and pursuit of your passion. She shares her own journey and the journey's of some of the many people she's interviewed along the way.

Author: Primal Cuisine, Cooking for the Paleo Diet
Publisher, Inner Traditions, Bear & Company (Healing Arts Press)
After suffering from depression and a lifetime of inexplicable and annoying health symptoms, including an autoimmune disorder, I decided to change my diet. While living in Hood River, Oregon I had the good fortune to meet Nora Gedgaudas a Portland based neurofeedback specialist and board certified nutritionist, and author of Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet for Total Health and a Longer Life. Nora gave me many tests to determine a diagnosis of hypoglycemia, vitamin D3 deficiency, gluten intolerance and a little known genetic disorder, pyroluria (a severe vitamin B6 and zinc deficiency).
Nora promptly put me on the primal diet and recommended the appropriate supplements and within three months I had cured my hypoglycemia, lost weight, but most significantly alleviated my depression for good. I am now 67 years old, on no medications and have the energy of someone in my 20's. All this was accomplished with a change in diet. After such significant success I decided to write a cookbook that would best follow the dietary guidelines that Nora recommends in Primal Body, Primal Mind. In fact Nora has written the forward to Primal Cuisine.
Since owning a Napa Valley catering company, The Best of Everything, for over 20 years, I integrated my years of experience with California wine country cuisine, farmers market ingredients and my philosophy of using organic ingredients, grassfed meats, wild caught fish, and "pastured" poultry and dairy as the building blocks to optimum physical and mental health. The primal diet is not to be confused with the caveman diet or the Atkins diet with big slabs of meat. I have included lots of non-starchy, high fiber vegetable recipes as I feel they contribute to our health in a very important way. Nutritious fats are also important and the recipes reflect our body's requirement for good fats, like butter, avocadoes and coconut oil.
One of the most important aspects of adopting the primal diet is the positive effect on mental health. In my lectures I outline how the primal diet can help with many brain problems, including, ADD, autism, bi-polar disorder, depression, schizophrenia and Alzheimer's. With so many Americans suffering from these disorders, and also taking many medications with side effects, I educate on how a change in diet can greatly alleviate mental suffering. It has for me.

Nationally Syndicated Cartoonist
Several years ago, Las Vegas Sun publisher Brian Greenspun received a call from his friend Bill Clinton, who wanted to know about Mike Smith. The former president was in California and had picked up the San Jose Mercury News to find a Smith cartoon poking fun at him.
But Clinton wasn't calling to complain; he wanted to know what happened—why had Smith left the Sun?
Mike hadn't gone anywhere. The Mercury News had simply picked up his nationally syndicated cartoon, which has attracted a loyal following of readers.
For three decades, readers have enjoyed Mike's creative blend of insight, humor and opinion. Artistically, he is something of a minimalist, but don't let that fool you—his efficient style moves the reader quickly to the point. His work is clear and crisp; his ideas are fresh and funny. His keen intellect, shaped by a Jesuit education, delightfully melds with his Joe Sixpack sensibilities, and it makes him a unique commentator on America life.
The result is a cartoon that readers understand and identify with, whether it's a former president or a local gadfly. It's no wonder that over the years his cartoon has appeared in hundreds of print and online publications across the country, including The New York Times, USA Today and Time. In addition, "Good Morning America", "Oprah", and "Meet the Press" have broadcast Smith's cartoons. His work is nationally syndicated by King Features Syndicate and is regularly recognized in compilations, including the Washington Post's best cartoons of 2012.
Although his political views are typically left of center, there's a refreshing libertarian streak that breaks to the contrary, meaning he isn't easily pigeonholed. In that regard, he's an equal opportunity offender—he tweaked both President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Gov. Mitt Romney throughout the year.
Readers love it. Or loathe it. Sometimes they change their minds by the day based on his targets. They're engaged and write letters, comments, emails, tweets and Facebook posts because Mike knows how to hit home. Literally.
Mike is also well-known and highly regarded in NASCAR for his weekly Stockcartoons feature chronicling the sport that he draws for the Sporting News.

- Kevin speaks with passion and clarity.-Kevin speaks from the heart.
- Kevin can inject humor when needed, and keep the audience on target of the topics and subject matter all while making them smile and laugh.
- Kevin, does not speak to be heard, but takes you through a story, or even more impressively, a Journey.

"Kevin Kline was the featured speaker at our annual mother-son luncheon for over 1000 moms and their high school sons. Kevin captivated the audience from the moment he began to speak about his inspirational story of how his life was changed by meeting a young girl battling cancer.

In all of my years attending this event, he was by far the best speaker we have ever had. He touched everyone in some way and we are all better people for konwing him!"

The Lost Temple of Israel
The Ultimate Guide to Thinking Out-of-the-Box
When is the last time you heard of an amateur making a discovery and coming to conclusions which may affect over two billion (yes, billion!!) people?
A revolutionary thinker and dynamic speaker, Zvi Koenigsberg will guide you through his amazing research, which has been recognized by the best experts in related fields as original, explosive and possibly creating a virtual upheaval in previously almost axiomatic concepts relating to the Hebrew Bible and the beginnings of Western Civilization.
What is the first book of the Hebrew Bible? Genesis. Not so, says Koenigsberg. He will show you why its actually Deuteronomy.
Where was the first temple of Israel? Jerusalem. Not so, says Koenigsberg. Its at Mt. Ebal, at an archaeological site he helped excavate in the 1980's.
What are the earliest literary works of Western Civilization? The Odyssey and the Illiad by Homer. Not so, says Koenigsberg, providing credible evidence that parts of the Hebrew Bible preceded them by some 400 years!!
Let him take you through his incredible saga, which will teach you never to take anything for granted, keep an open mind, and most important, appreciate the dogged determination that proves better than anything that "when there's a will, there's a way".

Tempest Storm brings a new dimension to the Bruce Merrin Celebrity Speakers & Entertainment Bureau, as it proudly presents the all-time Queen Of Burlesque.
Tempest is the last of the original superstars of burlesque. She is the only burlesque dancer to ever 'strip' on the stage of Carnegie Hall in New York. She was cited by Playboy Magazine as one of the most glamorous women of the century. She is an inductee into the Burlesque Hall of Fame and the Tropicana Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, and is the 2011 nominee for a star on the Vegas Walk Of Fame.
Her story of the poor farm girl from the South who escaped an abusive childhood to find fame and love in the spotlight of stars is the model, as reported in the media, for the new film, "Burlesque" with Christina Aguilera and Cher.
Tempest Storm presently headlines and hosts the "Tempest Storm Las Vegas Burlesque Revue" that is bringing classic burlesque back to the legitimate American theater stages.
Her romantic ties with Elvis Presley, John F. Kennedy, and other men of power add to the allure of this entertainment icon.
He is smart, witty and sharp. A national radio talk show host with a unique perspective on the United States in the 21st Century. He is SIMON CONWAY.
His conservative outlook was forged in his native UK, where he experienced the considerable downsides of European-style socialism. His take on the issues of the day facing Americans can best be summed up by a line he often uses on the air - "I've already lived through where we are headed."
Born in London, England, Simon completed his almost ten year journey to legal US Citizenship just a couple of years ago. This has given him some extremely interesting insights into the immigration debate.
Simon has lived and worked in Israel and the UK as well where was a journalist. He also founded one of England's most successful Corporate Communications businesses which he ran for some 20 years.
He is also a published fiction author.
Most recently you could have heard him on 540 WFLA/Orlando, News Radio 1140 WRVA/Richmond, Talk Radio 105-5 WERC/Birmingham and News Radio 630 WLAP/Lexington. Having been filling in around the country on such great stations as KOGO/San Diego, WOAI/San Antonio and KTLK/Minneapolis, Simon has now landed one of the very best jobs in Talk Radio - Afternoon Drive Host on the legendary Heritage station - News Radio 1040 WHO in Des Moines Iowa. This is the place where Ronald Reagan started work and is the station where anybody who is serious about being President of the United States, will have to come and visit.
"The Constitution should be regarded as a sacred document," he says and adds: "Unfortunately as each year passes it seems to be less important."
Simon also believes in giving back to his community and so for the past five years he has coached both men's and women's high school tennis in Orlando. His 2010 record in that regard was two Metro Championships; two District Championships; Regional Runners-up and four of his kids went to the State Championship as well. What he is less likely to tell you, is that he was also voted by his fellow coaches as both Men's and Women's Metro Coach of the Year.
