This is Brendon speaking freestyle, filmed in one take without prompter or notes. Brendon Burchard is one of the most widely followed personal development trainers of our time. He is in the Top 100 Most Followed Public Figures on Facebook, and a #1 New York Times bestselling author whose books include The Charge, The Millionaire Messenger, and Life’s Golden Ticket.

What Would You Die For? | Brad McLain This talk looks at the nature and impact of extraordinary experiences, especially how such experiences may change our sense of self or identity. Brad is a social science research professor at the University of Colorado Boulder’s Center for STEM Learning and is co-director of The Experiential Science Education Research Collaborative. Dr. McLain is an accomplished filmmaker originally from Norfolk, Nebraska, and he attended the University of Nebraska Lincoln for part of his undergraduate education.

Shaka Senghor: Why your worst deeds don’t define you In 1991, Shaka Senghor shot and killed a man. He was, he says, “a drug dealer with a quick temper and a semi-automatic pistol.” Jailed for second degree murder, that could very well have been the end of the story. But it wasn’t. Instead, it was the beginning of a years-long journey to redemption, one with humbling and sobering lessons for us all.
Kevin Briggs: The bridge between suicide and life For many years Sergeant Kevin Briggs had a dark, unusual, at times strangely rewarding job: He patrolled the southern end of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, a popular site for suicide attempts. In a sobering, deeply personal talk Briggs shares stories from those he’s spoken — and listened — to standing on the edge of life. He gives a powerful piece of advice to those with loved ones who might be contemplating suicide.
Thomas W. Laqueur: Why Do We Care for the Dead? When his friends asked Diogenes the Cynic what he wanted done with his body after he died, he told them that they should throw it over the wall to be eaten by the beasts and birds. And why not? It was no longer his; he would not notice. For more than 2,000 years, conversations in the West—and elsewhere—have acknowledged that Diogenes had a point. And yet we as a species care for our dead. This lecture by Thomas W. Laqueur offers an answer for why this should be the case from both a general anthropological perspective and from the vantage of particular historical cases. The living need the dead more than the dead need the living. Thomas W. Laqueur is a professor of history at the University of California, Berkeley.
Stephen Cave: The 4 stories we tell ourselves about death – Lugen Family Office Philosopher Stephen Cave begins with a dark but compelling question: When did you first realize you were going to die? And even more interestingly: Why do we humans so often resist the inevitability of death? In a fascinating talk Cave explores four narratives — common across civilizations — that we tell ourselves “in order to help us manage the terror of death.” Philosopher Stephen Cave wants to know: Why is humanity so obsessed with living forever? Why You Should Listen To Him? Stephen Cave is a writer and philosopher who is obsessed with our obsession with immortality. In 2012 he published Immortality: The Quest to Live Forever and How It Drives Civilization, an inquiry into humanity’s rather irrational resistance to the inevitability of death. Cave moves across time and history’s major civilizations and religions to explore just what drives this instinct — and what that means for the future. Cave writes for The Financial Times and contributes toThe New York Times, The Guardian and Wired.
