[post_content] => As President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil, Daniel Lamarre is responsible for nurturing the delicate balance between the company’s global strategy (across five continents), its financial growth and stability, and the integrity of its culture and values. Among his greatest achievements include the execution of complex negotiations resulting in signed agreements with THE BEATLES and MICHAEL JACKSON’s estate. Cirque du Soleil’s production of ‘LOVE’ based on THE BEATLES’ music is the only live show ever agreed to by the iconic group. The celebration of Michael Jackson’s life and work ‘ONE’ was produced after competing with other entertainment giants who had established relationships with Michael Jackson’s estate. Both accomplishments required outstanding business skills to be brought to the fore.Daniel Lamarre’s outlook is resolutely international, but his roots are firmly in his tiny home town of Grand-Mère, Quebec, Canada. This strong sense of self and values is fundamental to how Daniel does business, but it is also a source of great personal satisfaction. Daniel has a close bond with his parents, Gilles and Pauline. His Dad helped him get his first job on a newspaper at 16 after all!Daniel’s strength is his ability to marry the needs of disparate groups and interests, finding positive solutions and outcomes for all. A skill he has fine-tuned throughout his career, with TVA Broadcast Group, NATIONAL Public Relations, and Burson Marsteller.In 2012 he collaborated on the creation of C2MTL Conference, a one-of-a-kind coming together of the creative and business elite of the world. It is a platform for exploring creative answers to commercial questions. In line with his belief that without creativity, there is no commerce.He has been honoured with Doctorates from McGill University, and his alma mater the University of Ottawa.

His story is the ultimate tale of how the pursuit of wealth can often trump the importance of ethics in the business world. In the 1990s, Belfort built one of the most dynamic and successful sales organizations in the nation’s financial circles before his well-publicized fall. During that time, he soared to the highest financial heights, earning over $50 million a year, a feat that earned him the name “The Wolf of Wall Street.”Belfort’s career was captured in the Oscar and Golden Globe nominated film, The Wolf of Wall Street, released on Christmas Day 2013. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Belfort and was directed by Martin Scorsese. DiCaprio won the Golden Globe award for Best Comedy for his portrayal of Belfort.Now recovered from the traps of his former high-flying lifestyle, Belfort has re-emerged in the business world as a speaker, author and leading voice on the importance of business ethics. His proprietary Straight Line System allows him to take virtually any company or individual and empower them to create massive wealth, abundance, and entrepreneurial success, without sacrificing integrity or ethics.He has served as an advisor to more than fifty public companies, and has been profiled in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The London Times, The Herald Tribune, Le Monde, Corriere della Serra, Forbes, BusinessWeek, Paris Match and Rolling Stone.He created the Jordan Belfort Foundation to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs in underprivileged communities to create economic opportunities that transform their own lives, their families, and their communities.Uri has been in the high tech business for the last 30 years, half of them in the startup scene, and has seen everything ranging from failure, middle success and extreme success. Thanks to his long and proven experience, Uri is able to deliver highly engaging keynotes to young entrepreneurs and companies and offer them a cookbook, a recipe for success.Belfort has two international best-selling memoirs, The Wolf of Wall Street and Catching the Wolf of Wall Street.

He came to international fame at the age of 22 as the youngest world chess champion in history in 1985. He defended his title five times, including a legendary series of matches against arch-rival Anatoly Karpov. Kasparov broke Bobby Fischer’s rating record in 1990 and his own peak rating record remained unbroken until 2013. His famous matches against the IBM super-computer Deep Blue in 1996-97 were key to bringing artificial intelligence, and chess, into the mainstream.Kasparov’s was one of the first prominent Soviets to call for democratic and market reforms and was an early supporter of Boris Yeltsin’s push to break up the Soviet Union. In 1990, he and his family escaped ethnic violence in his native Baku as the USSR collapsed. In 2005, Kasparov, in his 20th year as the world’s top-rated player, retired from professional chess to join the vanguard of the Russian pro-democracy movement. In 2012, Kasparov was named chairman of the New York-based Human Rights Foundation, succeeding Vaclav Havel. HRF promotes individual liberty worldwide and organizes the Oslo Freedom Forum. Facing imminent arrest during Putin’s crackdown, Garry Kasparov moved from Moscow to New York City in 2013.The US-based Kasparov Chess Foundation non-profit promotes the teaching of chess in education systems around the world. Its program already in use in schools across the United States, KCF also has centers in Brussels, Johannesburg, Singapore, and Mexico City. Garry and his wife Daria travel frequently to promote the proven benefits of chess in education and have toured Africa extensively.Kasparov has been a contributing editor to The Wall Street Journal since 1991 and is a regular commentator on politics and human rights. He speaks frequently to business and political audiences around the world on technology, strategy, politics, and achieving peak mental performance. He is a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Oxford-Martin School with a focus on human-machine collaboration. He’s a member of the executive advisory board of the Foundation for Responsible Robotics and a Security Ambassador for Avast Software, where he discusses cyber security and the digital future. Kasparov’s book How Life Imitates Chess on strategy and decision-making is available in over 20 languages. He is the author of two acclaimed series of chess books, My Great Predecessors and Modern Chess. Kasparov’s 2015 book, Winter Is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped is a blend of history, memoire, and current events analysis.Garry Kasparov’s last book is Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins. (May 2017) It details his matches against Deep Blue, his years of research and lectures on human and machine competition and collaboration, and his cooperation with the Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford. He says,“AI will transform everything we do and we must press forward ambitiously in the one area robots cannot compete with humans: in dreaming big dreams. Our machines will help us achieve them. Instead of worrying about what machines can do, we should worry more about what they still cannot do.” [post_title] => GARRY KASPAROV [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => garry-kasparov [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2019-08-03 14:58:23 [post_modified_gmt] => 2019-08-03 12:58:23 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://aurumbureau.com/?post_type=team-member&p=12698 [menu_order] => 120 [post_type] => team-member [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw )[4] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 13528 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2019-04-10 08:29:51 [post_date_gmt] => 2019-04-10 08:29:51 [post_content] =>

He served as a board member in several technology, health and fitness and consumer goods companies as well as several government technology and innovation boards in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. He mentors tens of start-ups at any point in time.Mo Gawdat is the author of “Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy” (2017). Through his 12 year research on the topic of happiness, he created an algorithm and a repeatable well engineered model to reach a state of uninterrupted happiness regardless of the circumstances of life. Mo’s happiness model proved highly effective. And, in 2014, was put to the ultimate test when Mo lost his son Ali to preventable medical error during a simple surgical procedure.

Still active in politics and campaigns in Britain and overseas, he now splits his time between writing, speaking, charities and consultancy.He has for many years been chairman of fund-raising of Bloodwise, Britain’s main blood cancer charity, but in recent years has become increasingly involved with mental health charities and causes. A former ‘Mind Champion of the Year’, he is an ambassador for the Time to Change campaign to raise awareness about mental illness, ambassador for Alcohol Concern, patron of Maytree, the country’s only charity for the suicidal, and of Kidstime, which supports the children of mentally ill parents. He co-founded the all-party campaign, Equality4MentalHealth, which was credited in Parliament by Chancellor George Osborne with securing an extra £600million for mental health services in the 2005 spending review.Though he left a full-time role with the Blair government in 2003, he returned for the subsequent three general elections to help first Blair, then Gordon Brown and Ed Miliband. He also advised the Better Together campaign against independence for Scotland. He continues to advise left of centre parties, in particular in the Balkans, where he has for some years been a strategic director for the Albanian Socialist Party, who won a landslide victory in June 2013, making Edi Rama Prime Minister. Campbell has been Humanitas Visting Professor on media at Cambridge University, and has been honoured by both University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin for his contribution to the Northern Ireland Peace Process. He is on the advisory board of Portland PR, and in addition independently acts as an advisor to governments, businesses, charities, sports organisations and high profile individuals. He helped to found the world’s first university in football business, UCFB, in Burnley, Lancashire, which has since extended to Wembley and Manchester City’s Etihad stadium.He writes a monthly interview for GQ magazine, and has covered figures as varied as Jose Mourinho and Nicola Sturgeon, Kevin Spacey and Mario Balotelli. Passionate about sport, he was written about different sports for The Times, the Irish Times and Esquire magazine. He was communications adviser to the British and Irish Lions rugby tour of New Zealand in 2005. He has raised funds for Burnley FC, a team he has supported since the age of four. His charity projects have involved him playing football with both Diego Maradona and Pele, and appearing in a one off version of the popular TV programme, The Apprentice.In July 2007, he published his first book on his time with Tony Blair, The Blair Years, extracts from his diaries from 1994 to 2003, which was an instant Sunday Times Number 1 bestseller. He has since published four volumes of the full diaries, and a special edition of the diaries focused on the Northern Ireland peace process, ‘The Irish Diaries’. He has continued to keep a diary and is expected to publish his post Downing Street diaries in the future. His first novel, All In The Mind, appeared in November 2008, to enthusiastic reviews for its frank examination of mental illness. His second novel Maya, a gripping analysis of fame and the obsession it attracts, was published in February 2010. His third novel, published in September 2013, was called My Name Is, and tells the story of a young girl’s descent into alcoholism. This led to him becoming an ambassador for Alcohol Concern.In October 2008 Alastair broadcast an award-winning one hour documentary on BBC2 about his own breakdown in 1986. Both the film, Cracking Up, and All In The Mind, won considerable praise from mental health charities and campaign groups for helping to break down the taboo surrounding mental health, leading to his election as Mind Champion of the Year award in May 2009. He has also made a BBC documentary about alcoholism, and more recently a film about wildlife. He has made a film too about his love of bagpipe music, which ended with him performing in front of 2,500 people in Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall.He lives mainly in London, with his partner of 36 years, journalist and education campaigner Fiona Millar.

Championing such issues as human development, democracy, and demilitarization, he has traveled the globe spreading a message of peace and applying the lessons garnered from the Central American Peace Process to topics of current global debate. The New York Times reported that Oscar Arias’s “positions on Central American issues have become the standards by which many people in Congress and elsewhere have come to judge United States policy.” In a similar way, he has come to take a leading position in international forums and discourse.As president, Dr. Arias drafted the Arias Peace Plan, which was signed by five Central American presidents on August 7, 1987, and established peace in the region. That same year, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and used the monetary award to establish the Arias Foundation for Peace and Human Progress, which promoted equal opportunities for women in all sectors of Central American society, fostered change-oriented philanthropy in Latin America, and worked for demilitarization and conflict resolution in the developing world.Dr. Arias was a visible president, frequently venturing out in public on his own to listen to the concerns of the citizenry. He remains “a man of the people” today and carries a sincere message of solidarity and partnership, to counter the growing threats faced by all nations today and to initiate an era of peace and prosperity for all humankind.

Among his greatest achievements include the execution of complex negotiations resulting in signed agreements with THE BEATLES and MICHAEL JACKSON’s estate. Cirque du Soleil’s production of ‘LOVE’ based on THE BEATLES’ music is the only live show ever agreed to by the iconic group. The celebration of Michael Jackson’s life and work ‘ONE’ was produced after competing with other entertainment giants who had established relationships with Michael Jackson’s estate. Both accomplishments required outstanding business skills to be brought to the fore.Daniel Lamarre’s outlook is resolutely international, but his roots are firmly in his tiny home town of Grand-Mère, Quebec, Canada. This strong sense of self and values is fundamental to how Daniel does business, but it is also a source of great personal satisfaction. Daniel has a close bond with his parents, Gilles and Pauline. His Dad helped him get his first job on a newspaper at 16 after all!Daniel’s strength is his ability to marry the needs of disparate groups and interests, finding positive solutions and outcomes for all. A skill he has fine-tuned throughout his career, with TVA Broadcast Group, NATIONAL Public Relations, and Burson Marsteller.In 2012 he collaborated on the creation of C2MTL Conference, a one-of-a-kind coming together of the creative and business elite of the world. It is a platform for exploring creative answers to commercial questions. In line with his belief that without creativity, there is no commerce.He has been honoured with Doctorates from McGill University, and his alma mater the University of Ottawa.

Would Apple be the most valuable company in the world without Steve Jobs’ incomparable vision? Would FC Barcelona have won all possible titles in one year without Pep Guardiola’s strategy? Would Berkshire Hathaway’s shares have risen on average a compound annual rate of more than 20% for the last 50 years without Warren Buffett at the helm?

The answer to these three questions is, almost certainly, no. Without unifying vision, coherent strategy, and bold, confident decisions made by an exceptional leader, no organization will have much impetus or staying power.

As the great Alondra de la Parra is fond of saying, a leader is like an orchestra conductor: they must know the capabilities of their musicians and their instruments, and how they work together. They must guide them to play in unison with a single united purpose. And they must have the clear values and unshakeable self-confidence that win their followers’ respect and persuade them to follow without hesitation.

Those are the qualities of a leader who inspires change, who has the courage and will to make difficult decisions, and who has the ability to build a large and effective organization. Those are the leaders in Aurum Speakers Bureau’s portfolio. They are on the most prestigious leadership lists like Thinkers 50; they are captains of their industries and have led their teams to success on innumerable occasions.

And their achievements have not come by chance. They offer the insight you need to follow in their footsteps. Don’t wait any longer to bring them to your next event—seize this change to hear their secrets and methods, transform your management team, or motivate your company. Just tell us your preferences and what specific topic you want to address, and we’ll help you find a speaker capable of changing how you think.

So let’s talk leadership, today’s and tomorrow’s. No matter whether you were a born leader or a carefully trained one, our experts will take your event to the next level.
