Creating Unforgettable Meetings 
Begins with Unforgettable Stories 
GDA Speakers is passionate about your attendees - 
what they remember about your meeting, 
what they talk about when they hit the doors 
and how powerful speakers make all the difference. 
Below are four speakers you need to know.
The Legend

"Tough circumstances elevate you to be the best you can be or the worst you can be." Those are the words of the ultimate survivor, Nando Parrado. Spellbound by his story, audiences are inspired to believe that anything is possible. Want to learn more? Follow Nando's Facebook page for daily memories of his journey as he celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the plane crash, survival and his trek to rescue the other survivors.

The Pursuer
"It can be done, but you have to make it happen." To say Chris Gardner lives the passionate pursuit of success would be too simple. He is the author of the autobiography, The Pursuit of Happyness, a New York Times bestseller. He is also the inspiration for the acclaimed movie "The Pursuit of Happyness." Audiences are brought to their feet by his energy, style and ability to unlock the potential of an organization. 
The Memory Man
Ron White"Your memory should never hold you back from success. It should be a game changer." This Veteran's Day Ron White announced that he is memorizing the more than 2,000 names of the United States soldiers lost in Afghanistan. Described as the ultimate meeting ice breaker, Ron is without question the nation's #1 memory expert and is one of the top memory champions in the world. His message on training your memory will have your attendees laughing, taking notes and trying out new techniques.
The Fascinator
"When customers are fascinated by you and your message, they're more likely to trust, believe, and respect you."  An expert of persuasion and personal branding, Sally Hogshead researched the average attention span. Her findings? It's only 9 seconds. Using her trademarked tests and studies, Sally teaches audiences how to break through in a distracted world and create messages that grip attention - messages that fascinate.  Her new book, HOW THE WORLD SEES YOU: From First Impressions to Lasting Value will be released in 2013.
