Gian Paul Gonzalez Speaker

Gian Paul Gonzalez

Gian Paul Gonzalez – Motivational Speaker Who Inspires Hope Through the Power of Commitment and Positivity

 About

  • Inspired the 2011 New York Giants to their Super Bowl victory with famous “ALL IN” speech to the team which became a rally cry to win. Gian's message gained national attention, and was covered by ESPN, Fox News, and CNN.
  • Founder and Executive Director of Hope + Future with the mission to provide health and wellness programs for youth and give them hope in their academic, social and economic future.
  • Former NCAA First Team All-American forward for Montclair State University. Offered professional basketball contracts, but turned those down to continue his work with at-risk youth.

Gian Paul Gonzalez (pronounced John-Paul) is widely recognized for inspiring the New York Giants to their most recent Super Bowl victory with the phrase "ALL IN". He has been featured on ESPN as well as had notable appearances on Fox News & CNN.

Gonzalez, a high school teacher in Union City, N.J., was asked to lead a chapel service for members of the New York Giants team the night before the team’s Christmas Eve 2011 game against the New York Jets. There was little hope then that the team would make it to the playoffs.

To illustrate the concept of commitment, Gonzalez handed each football player a poker chip, instructing them to write their number on one side of the chip and write what they wanted to be committed to on the other side. He then shared with the team the meaning behind the poker phrase “All In”. He inspired them to be committed and put all their “chips” on the table.

"We are faced with decisions every day at which time we can decide to be fully committed, or all in," says Gonzalez, a former All-American forward, who passed up a professional basketball contract to continue his work with at-risk youth. "I said to the players, ‘I want you to fully commit to being all in on something.'" Gonzalez went on to urge players to fully commit to anything they take on, whether as a father, husband, son or even, a football player.

Next day after Gian Paul’s chapel message the Giants beat the Jets 29-14. In a post game interview, Giant’s Defensive End, Justin Tuck credited the chapel speaker’s (Gian Paul) message of being “All In” as the reason the Giants won that day. The team went on to win every game, up to and including Super Bowl XLVI, where they beat the New England Patriots 21-17.

An inspiring figure, Gian Paul was a former NCAA First Team All-American forward at Montclair State University scoring nearly 1,400 points in his 3-year tenure. He played in the NBA Summer League and was offered professional basketball contracts , yet turned them down to continue his work with at-risk youth.

Gian Paul is the founder and executive director of Hope & Future, an organization dedicated to using athletics and physical fitness to share a message of hope and excellence in inner-city public schools and juvenile jails.

Amanda Gore Speaker

Amanda Gore

CEO of The Joy Project, Communication & Performance Expert, Author and Huffington Post Columnist

 About

Click Here to Watch Amanda's Virtual Presentation

Amanda Gore is a communications and performance expert who believes success in business is always about feelings. The way we feel about a product, organization, customer or person influences how we behave - and informs our decisions about how we spend, or how we conduct business. Facts, targets and figures don’t change behaviours - touching hearts, feelings and stories do.

Amanda is on point, and devoted to presenting the most reputable research available for professionals - salespeople, nurses, teachers - and anyone reaching for excellence in their work. Her material is backed by the latest findings in neuroscience, epigenetics, emotional intelligence, and positive psychology that are proven to reap huge rewards for your business.

Amanda understands that getting down to business isn’t all about targets and optimizing click-throughs. The heart and profit center of every business is about how people think, and consequently, feel about themselves; and how they make others feel. How we feel about a personal or business relationship informs every part of our decision to invest with them. Amanda offers an abundance of use-it-now tools to create deep, lasting relationships at every level - with family, customers, colleagues, and clients. Everyone leaves energized, enthusiastic and re-engaged!

Instead of delivering facts and research, her presentations break down the barriers that separate people in an invigorating, action-packed ride toward self-discovery - and gives them the tools to make real and lasting change – by getting real! For example, how is it that the most successful people and those who are average (or worse!) manage to get their results in exactly the same environment? The difference is mindset - looking honestly at yourself and choosing consciously.

She uses principles from positive psychology, epigenetics, neuroscience and emotional intelligence to deliver profound messages in stories that are funny. This teaches people to re-connect to the energy and emotional layers that really drive performance, innovation, relationships, engagement and creativity in their business  and personal life. Business today is about H2H. And it always has been, but we have forgotten it - Human2human!

Amanda makes your audiences happier - and gives them strategies that work on how to stay happier!

Amanda is one of 4 Australians inducted into the USA Speaker Hall of Fame. She works with small and large organizations around the globe, such as Flight Centre, McDonalds, Westpac, AMP, MDRT, CBA, Google, Remax, Disney, Hilton, The Direct Selling and many other associations, hospitals and schools to help them create cultures of joy and engagement and to bring the humanity back into their organizations.

Amanda’s action-packed, but scientifically based performances, offer an abundance of use-it-now tools to handle change and create deep, lasting relationships at every level - with customers, colleagues and family - leaving everyone feeling good about themselves, energized, enthusiastic and re-engaged!

Remember - Joy is the ultimate business fuel.

Kristen Hadeed Speaker

Kristen Hadeed

Founder & CEO of Student Maid, Author & Entrepreneur

 About

  • CEO and founder of Student Maid, a cleaning company that has employed thousands of millennials and is known for building the next generation of leaders
  • Kristen talks about how to build a culture of belonging with multiple generations in the workplace, and how to deliver and receive criticism as a leader.
  • First TED Talk has received more than two million hits on YouTube
  • Past clients include: Apple, Burger King, jetBlue, Ohio State University, PGA Tour,  Re/MAX

Kristen Hadeed believes that authentic, human leadership can change the world.

At 19, with hardly any leadership experience, Kristen started a cleaning business called Student Maid. She never expected it to be her career; it was simply a way to earn money while she was in college. But before she graduated, her company received a contract to clean hundreds of apartments—and it changed her path forever. Kristen hired a team of 60 people help her, and within days, 75% of that team quit. That’s when Kristen’s obsession with learning how to be a leader began.

Over the next 14 years, Kristen learned a lot by screwing up. But most importantly, she learned how to lead from her heart. Doing so helped her take Student Maid from a small cleaning company to a business known on a global scale for its culture of belonging, its focus on people, and its purpose of building leaders.

Today, Kristen spends her time helping leaders, teams, and organizations around the world embrace their humanity. She’s worked with just about every industry with one purpose behind it all: To build a better world through courageous, compassionate leadership.

Kristen’s work has been featured in news outlets including PBS, FOX, Inc., NBC, TIME, and Forbes. Kristen’s book, Permission To Screw Up, has sold more than 40,000 copies worldwide. Her first TED Talk has more than three million views on YouTube
