SURVIVING IN THE ANDES
His is a story that many will recognize, but few have an opportunity to hear first hand. Nando Parrado recounts the extraordinary tale of how he and 15 of his teammates survived for 72 brutal days after their plane crashed into the frozen Andes Mountains over 30 years ago. It remains one of the paramount survival stories of all time.
From the time the plane crashed on October 13, 1972 until their rescue on December 22, Nando and his fellow Uruguayan rugby teammates were forced to cross both physical and mental boundaries. After waking from a concussion only to learn that his mother had died on impact and his sister was near death, Nando became obsessed with surviving and emerged a hero after he and teammate Roberto Canessa walked for 10 days to find their salvation. Their story of courage, teamwork, determination and leadership, experienced at a level few have known, will leave you with a heightened awareness of the value of human life.
Soon after the rescue of the 16 survivors, Nando worked with Piers Paul Read, the author chosen by the survivors to pen the best-selling book Alive. Twenty years later, Nando served as technical advisor to the Frank Marshall/Kathleen Kennedy production of the film of the same name starring Ethan Hawke as Nando. The success of the film quickly prompted requests for Nando to speak around the world about the “Miracle in the Andes” and he began doing so on a very limited basis in 1995. The requests for presentations continue to exceed the number that he is able to accept due to business and family obligations. Nando is the author of the New York Times bestseller Miracle in the Andes: 72 Days on the Mountain and My Long Trek Home, a major release from Crown books which tells the story of the Andes ordeal from an intensely personal perspective.
Since this experience, Nando has become a successful businessman and television producer. He is CEO of four companies in Uruguay. He also hosts several popular television programs in Uruguay including shows on nature, public affairs, autos and travel. He is also a highly sought-after speaker on the international lecture circuit.
In his spare time, Nando enjoys racing motorcycles, sports cars, stock cars and watercraft. He has many awards, including the European Team Cup for stock car racing and the Open Watercraft Championship in Punta Del Este, Uruguay. In 1991, Nando was part of a team of drivers who raced across the Sahara in stock model Peugeots. The trip, from Morocco to Tunisia, covered 8,500 km and took 28 days.
A native of Montevideo, Uruguay, Nando graduated from Stella Maris College run by the Irish Christian Brothers. He also participated in a study abroad in the United States that allowed him to attend high school in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Nando speaks five languages and travels extensively.
Paula A. Sassi, Certified Master Graphologist, has achieved the highest level of certification in the art and science of graphology and holds a B.A. in Psychology and Adult Education. In 1980, she established her private practice, Handwriting Consultants International, and later formed a corporation, Paula A. Sassi, Inc. that serves a diverse group of clients in the areas of personnel selection, behavioral profiling and compatibility analyses.
By correlating handwriting strokes and styles to personality traits, Paula provides valuable insights that help employers hire the best candidates and build winning teams as well as resolve conflicts. A published author, she has helped both adults and children improve their handwriting and learning abilities as documented in her professionally published book, “Better Handwriting in 30 Days.” She also co-authored four course books in handwriting analysis which are available through her school, The Academy of Handwriting Sciences.
As editor of “Handwriting Insights,” a five minute handwriting analysis kit, Paula provides a fun and interesting way to learn the basics of graphology. Her career includes numerous appearances on TV and radio broadcasts, both nationally and locally.

Paula has presented numerous lectures, workshops and seminars on handwriting analysis for corporations, clubs, social groups and conventions. Her workshop on Team Building has been utilized by companies such as Qualcomm, Ernst & Young and various Chambers of Commerce. She also offers a sales seminar entitled “Insights through Expressive Movement” that enables salespeople to gain insight into their potential customers simply by analyzing their signatures. These valuable lessons are especially useful in Real Estate, Financial Planning and many other high investment sales environments. At conventions, Paula invites visitors to pen a positive statement about the company’s product and then analyses their writing as a form of entertainment and reward for visiting her sponsor’s exhibition booth.

Greg Bennick is, quite simply, the most dynamic keynote speaker in the nation. A passionate educator, an incredibly funny entertainer (imagine a speaker, comedy juggler, clean comedian, and magician all in one), an award-winning film producer, a far reaching world traveler, and an acclaimed expert in the human experience, Greg creates a visual display of words and action every time he takes the stage. He can be the after dinner comedy act that makes the party memorable for years, or he can be the keynote speaker who drives your points home with his own unique style.
Greg will customize his presentation to your theme in order to maximize the impact of your event. As a motivational keynote speaker, Greg does more than entertain: he galvanizes and inspires.
