Brian Buffini
The Emigrant Advantage

How to Make it Big in America

Brian Buffini was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, immigrating to San Diego, California in 1986 where his life developed into a classic American rags-to-riches story. Discovering real estate, using a non-traditional methodology based on building long-term relationships with clients, Brian quickly became one of the nation’s top real estate agents. In 1996, he founded Buffini & Company, which to date has trained over three million business professionals in 37 countries.

Every year, people from all over the world come to America to realize the American Dream. Despite starting from scratch, many go on to experience great success. Emigrants have a different perspective and recognize the opportunities, benefits and value that surround them. They have something those born-and-bred in America don’t—the Emigrant Edge.

Keynote Speakers: Aimee Mullins

Aimée Mullins
Embracing Adversity

Groundbreaking Athlete, Fashion Icon, Actor, TED All-Star, and Design Innovator

As the pace of business accelerates and established industries spin-off, evolve or die, executives face a world far more complex than that of even a decade ago. Competition, technology, paradigm shifts and globalization make “business as usual” more like “crisis as usual.”  As organizations face these challenges, leaders must continually decide how to respond.  Turning away is not an option….so how can challenges be addressed in new ways?  How can adverse conditions be viewed with curiosity and wonder?  Is it possible for your business to thrive when your industry overall is in survival mode?

Aimée Mullins will share how she has chosen to answer these questions and how every individual can adopt the mindset that adversity and change are not to be dreaded, but actually welcomed as exciting parts of today’s ‘new normal.’ From this vantage point, Aimée will share how she creates her path to success by taking the audience on a journey through some of the critical decision points she faced in her life  — a life that has seen experiences at the Pentagon, the Olympics, in business, acting, modeling and as the President of the Women’s Sports Foundation.  Most importantly, through Aimée’s experiences, listeners will see their personal and professional challenges through a powerful new lens and learn to respond to them in even more authentic, effective and meaningful ways.
