Keynote Speakers of Antelope Valley Board of Trade’s 2015 Business Outlook Conference

The Antelope Valley Board of Trade’s  Business Outlook Conference has brought some of the most inspirational Keynote Speakers sharing their insights on business and personal growth. This year will be no exception  as Actor John Ratzenberger, who rose to fame as postal carrier Cliff Clavin on the long-running television comedy series “Cheers,” will be one of two keynote speakers to address the 43rd annual Antelope Valley Business Outlook Conference, Friday, Feb. 27, 2015 at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster, CA.

The 2015 Antelope Valley Business Outlook Conference audience can expect to be inspired by keynote speaker Wally Amos, a 78-year-old entrepreneur who made big dough in the cookie business, took his lumps from losing it, and came back strong with his own special recipe for a life well lived.

We have had the opportunity to have one on ones with three of the last four Keynote Speakers and we want to share them with you.

First in 2011 COACH CARTER

A STORY OF SUCCESS THROUGH CHANGE Ken Carter understands the commitment that one makes to affect change in an organization. In his messages to civic and business leaders around the world, Carter shares his story and hard-hitting advice about accountability, integrity, teamwork and leadership to succeed both on and off the court. The businessman turned basketball coach led what would become a complete transformation of the inner city Richmond High School during the late 1990’s. His leadership set a new standard of winning, one that transcended the hoop dreams of high school, to college educations, and futures his students could never have imagined for themselves. His thought provoking story would go on to become the inspiration for the acclaimed film, Coach Carter, starring Samuel L. Jackson.

Second 2013 J.R. Martinez

Martinez, whose memoir, “Full of Heart: My Story of Survival, Strength and Spirit,” goes on sale today, became a household name in 2011 when he won ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” competition. “We believe J.R. Martinez will have the right message at the right time for an audience eager to overcome challenges in life and business,” said Business Outlook Conference Chairman Scott Cummings. “Mr. Martinez’s personal comeback against the odds is a message anyone would benefit from hearing.”

Thrid 2014 Capt. Mark Kelly


He loves Mojave, we talk about the tech community, commercial space travel. The VIP reception was full of folks who wanted to say hello to Capt Kelly, the Capt had a chance to meet our WW2 Vet Mr Larry Chimbole too. Capt Kelly’s book Gabby is a great story of success and challenge. I found Mark Kelly to be humble, easy to talk with and a great listener. The Antelope Valley Board of Trade has chosen a fantastic keynote speaker for its Outlook Event.

Kelly, who commanded six NASA Space Shuttle missions, and is one of  only two astronauts  to have visited the International Space Station on four missions, will address an audience of up to 800 expected for the day-long business conference at the Mojave Air and Space Port .

Capt. Kelly will be accompanied on the program by a long list of presenters who are leaders in the fields of regional economics, business, manufacturing, technology, renewable, energy, education, aerospace research and development, defense and transportation.
