Two powerhouse speakers say that winning in the 21st century involves persuading and motivating those around you to do what you need them to do. Guber is one of the most successful film producers in history, (Rain Man, Batman, The Color Purple), and his movies have earned more than $3 billion worldwide. He has been chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures, is currently CEO of Mandalay Entertainment Group, and recently acquired The Golden State Warriors. His new book, Tell to Win, provides techniques on how to move beyond basic storytelling and garner the power to tell purposeful, persuasive stories. Denning, the former program director of the World Bank, has written numerous award-winning books on leadership, success and more recently with his new book, Leader’s Guide to Radical Management, he's sought to re-invent management to create a more productive and challenging work environment.
