The Speakers




As one of the world’s most renowned motivational speakers, Les Brown is highly sought after for motivating the masses and expanding opportunity. For decades he’s strived to master the science of achievement by interviewing hundreds of leading authorities and collaborating with CEOs, non-profits, and businesses thus creating measurable results for clients.

Revered as an icon by his colleagues, Brown received the National Speakers Association coveted Council of Peers Award of Excellence (CPAE), and ultimately, its most prestigious Golden Gavel Award for achievement and leadership in communication. Toastmasters International also voted him one of the Top Five Outstanding Speakers. Worldwide.

In elementary school little Les Brown was mistakenly declared, "Educable mentally retarded." However, his tenacity and belief in his ability unleashed a course of amazing achievements from sanitation worker to broadcast station manager, political commentator and multi-term state representative in Ohio.

As a premier Keynote Speaker and leading authority on achievement for audiences as large as 80,000 from Denmark to Dubai, Canada to the Caribbean legions of admirers flock to stadiums to hear a man who never stops believing that with proper guidance and training you can begin achieving the things you desire now




Patrick’s incredible story starts with his family immigrating to America when he was 12-years old. His parents fled Iran as refugees during the Iranian revolution and were later granted US citizenship. After high school Patrick joined the US military and served in the 101st Airborne before starting a business career in the financial services industry. After a tenure with a couple traditional companies such as Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, he was inspired to launch PHP Agency Inc., an insurance sales, marketing and distribution company – and did so before age 30. PHP is now one of the fastest growing companies in the financial marketplace with over 4,000 agents in 49 states. In 2012, Patrick launched Valuetainment on YouTube. The channel teaches about the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and inspires people to break from limiting beliefs to achieve their dreams. Valuetainment is referred to as the #1 channel for entrepreneurs and currently has over 417K subscribers.




Thomas Ellsworth is currently President PHP Agency Inc., an Adjunct Professor, an advisor to companies founded by entrepreneurs and best of all - a father, husband and servant-leader. I live by a simple credo: to leave people and companies better than I found them. Along the way some colleagues have dubbed him the "Biz Doctor / Biz-Doc," which is the origin of his Twitter handle.

Professionally, Ellsworth is a proven CEO / COO with multi-exit entrepreneurial background. Expertise in strategy, operations, fund-raising, sales/distribution, SaaS, software development, technology, and marketing.

I have been disrupting industries and sectors at venture-backed companies that built national enterprises in telecom, insurance, publishing and mobile (exits/transactions totaling over $1.1B).

Nick Vujicic, born in Melbourne, Australia in 1982, came into the world, giving his parents the shock of their lives, as they saw him born without limbs. With no medical explanation for his disability, Nick in his childhood battled to find joy and a passion for life, whilst dealing with bullying at school, and self esteem issues. Despite his relentlessly loving home Nick attempted suicide at age 10, concluding he would never live a fulfilling and purpose-filled life. Now a husband to Kanae, and father to four children, his greatest joy is in his faith and family. He discovered his passion for speaking at age 17 and while he was accomplishing a double degree in accounting and financial planning, he went into personal investments and realized that when you don’t get a miracle you can still be a miracle for someone else! His inspirational speaking, and faith based speaking through his non-profit organization LWL, has taken him to 68 countries and opened the door to meet with 18 presidents personally; addressing 10 governments on a national level; two stat legislatures in the USA; and through media channels 1.6 billion people have someone been touched and inspired by his story.

Attitude Is Altitude is his entrepreneurial vehicle wherein Nick speaks into the speaking/coaching/training world; government and education initiatives and the entertainment industry. At 35 he thrives on seeing other people find the truth of their value, their purpose, and destiny, and witness people overcome their adversity and obstacles, leaning on the principles and values he lives by. Having received over 35,000 invitations to speak, and having spoken on 3500 stages, this first ever event presented by AIA is a milestone for Nick Vujicic personally, and his team, leveraging technology to reach as many people around the world effectively, but without taking him away from his growing family.

Whoever you are and whatever life you’ve walked so far, after hearing Nick Vujicic speak, as one of the two main keynotes, you will never be the same again!
