His 83 Super Bowl pass completions and 122 pass attempts without an interception also tops all-time. The once thought undersized quarterback turned out to be one of the great ones, earning the No. 4 spot on’s Top 100 Players of All Time and induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000.

Pamela Barnum · Pacific Life Insurance Company
Former Undercover Police Officer & Federal Prosecuting Attorney; Trust Strategist; Nonverbal Communication Expert

Imagine what it would be like to live as a different person with a different name, identity, and background. For months at a time, you’re living with a false identity, and your success depends on building trust and detecting deception with some of the most dangerous people imaginable. That’s precisely what Pamela Barnum did for years working undercover in the Drug Enforcement Section. She learned real-world techniques for building trust and interpreting body language. Following a successful 20-year career in the criminal justice system, Pamela studied corporate negotiations in graduate school. Now, she shares her expertise with others, teaching them how to improve their communication skills to increase trust inside corporations, associations, and law enforcement agencies. As a body language expert and trust strategist, Pamela delivers techniques once thought of like a “secret second language” that participants can begin using immediately.

Billy Beane · Sponsored by Transamerica
Executive VP of Baseball Operations for the Oakland A’s & Subject of “Moneyball”

Billy Beane, the Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations for the Oakland Athletics, has molded the team into one of baseball’s most consistent winners since taking over as General Manager following the 1997 season. Beane shattered traditional MLB beliefs that high payrolls equated wins by implementing a data-driven methodology that led the Oakland A’s, with one of the lowest payrolls, to 7 AL Western Division titles and 10 playoff appearances. That strategic methodology has come to be known as the “Moneyball” philosophy, named for the best-selling book and Oscar-nominated film chronicling Beane’s journey from General Manager to hero to celebrated management genius. Beane is a four-time Major League Baseball “Executive of the Year” award winner and was named by Forbes as one of the “100 Greatest Living Business Minds.”

Over the last ten years, Thomas Ian Nicholas Band has played over 700 concerts in 12 countries from huge festivals to solo acoustic shows in intimate clubs and private charity fundraisers. Musically, Thom draws on a solid crop of influences from Switchfoot to John Mayer that have helped him learn the art of writing a pop song while keeping a foot in rock and roll.
