MADE EXTRAORDINARY SPEAKER LINEUP

Earvin “Magic” Johnson | The Magic of Winning

Often regarded as the best point guard of all time, LA Lakers’ Earvin “Magic” Johnson’s achievements include three NBA MVP Awards, nine NBA Finals appearances, 12 All-Star games, and 10 All-NBA First and Second Team nominations. After his retirement, the HIV survivor pivoted his success from the NBA court to highly affluent business ventures.

Diana Nyad | Never Give Up

Long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad gained national attention in 1975 when she swam around Manhattan. In 2013, Diana motivated millions when she, on the fifth attempt, achieved her lifelong dream of becoming the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida. On the beach, after over 50 hours of non-stop swimming, Diana declared to the cheering crowd: “We should never ever give up”.

Nadja West | Leading Through Uncertainty

A trailblazer in leadership, Lieutenant General (ret) Nadja West is the 44th Army Surgeon General and the former Commanding General of US Army Medical Command. She is the first African American woman 3-star General in the Army’s history and holds over 20 years of experience in executive leadership, crisis management, and disaster response.

Bob Chapman | Truly Human Leadership

Bob Chapman is Chairman and CEO of Barry-Wehmiller, a $2.5B global manufacturing business with 11,000 team members.

Hosted by award-winning journalist Del Irani, the headline speakers will be joined by Deep Water Horizon survivor Caleb Holloway and QHSE leader Gary Bonnett to share their crises and safety experiences.
