Jon Acuff

Speaker Evaluation

Keynote Speaker at 2019 EO Portugal University
Jon Acuff is the New York Times Bestselling author of six books including his most recent, Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done.

For 20 years he’s worked for some of the biggest brands in the world to tell their story, including The Home Depot, Bose, and Staples. Most recently, he’s spoken to hundreds of thousands of people across the country for companies such as Microsoft, Nissan, and Comedy Central. Featured regularly on national media, Jon has been seen on CNN, Fox News, Good Day LA and several other key outlets. He’s also written for Time, the Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, Reader’s Digest, and MSNBC. Jon lives with his wife Jenny and two daughters in Franklin, TN.

Starting is Fun, but the Horizon Belongs to Finishers
According to a study conducted by the University of Scranton, 92% of resolutions fail.

That’s a staggering number considering how important goals are to carrying entrepreneurs toward new horizons.

What if we could do some simple things to improve how often we finished what we started? What if there unexpected things that were holding us back from being the leader we need to be? What if we could get more done in a world of bottomless opportunities and endless distractions?

New York Times Bestselling Author Jon Acuff says you can.

Years ago, when he started his own business, Jon quickly realized that in order to reach new horizons, entrepreneurs have to continually reach new goals. He also suspected goal-completion was not luck or genetics. So, he commissioned a study with a PhD researcher to test what makes a person a CONSISTENT FINISHER instead of just a CHRONIC STARTER. For six months, they studied nearly 900 people as they worked on goals that mattered to them.

The good news is, the research shows you can learn to finish. It’s not a natural talent some people have and others do not. It can be taught. Not only that, it can be fun and it can be fulfilling.

Starting is fun, but the horizon belongs to finishers.

In this keynote, you will learn:
  • How to identify the four parts of a goal and understand which your team needs to focus on the most.
  • Discovering the impact fun has on both satisfaction and performance.
  • Dealing with the secret rules, limiting beliefs and self-sabotage that often keep entrepreneurs from crossing new finish lines.

Marty Klein

Speaker Evaluation

Breakout Speaker at 2019 EO Portugal University
Dr. Marty Klein has been a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Certified Sex Therapist for over 30 years—that’s some 40,000 sessions with men, women, and couples.

Marty is the award-winning author of seven books on sexuality and relationships, including the ground-breaking Sexual Intelligence. Psychology Today simply says “To improve your sex life, buy this book.” Marty frequently appears in the popular media, such as The New York Times, National Public Radio, and The Daily Show. Marty is an outspoken critic of many popular and clinical ideas about sexuality and emotional health, and is a dedicated advocate of sexuality training for psychologists, physicians, attorneys, clergy, and school boards. He recently gave two Congressional briefings on evidence-based sex education.

Each year Marty speaks to thousands of people across the U.S., Europe, and Asia—some 35 countries to date. Audiences consistently call his talks thought-provoking, down-to-earth, and entertaining.

Sexual Intelligence for Entrepreneurs
In business, as we all know, performance is central.

In the world of sex and relationships, however, performance takes a back seat to many other things. These include intimacy, desire, empathy, communication, and most of all, emotional presence.
Satisfying sexuality involves much more than friction. And so to make sex more enjoyable—and to increase desire—better performance is not the answer. In fact, focusing on better performance undermines sex. It fills sex with anxiety, makes sex mechanical, and it creates emotional distance. It ultimately decreases desire, because people can fail. And no one hates to fail more than an entrepreneur.

What most people really want from sex is a sense of relaxation, playfulness, self-acceptance, and connection. And to feel special and desired. And so the familiar tools of entrepreneurs—working harder, solving “problems”—don’t work.

But if enhancing sexual satisfaction isn’t about better performance—or exotic positions, new toys, or losing ten pounds—what does make sex more enjoyable? What does enhance desire?

Master sex therapist and marriage counselor Dr. Marty Klein will discuss Sexual Intelligence—what it is, how we develop it, and how it can lead to more pleasure and intimacy. He’ll discuss how to create sex at which no one can fail. He’ll talk about how people can transition from lust-driven sex to adult eroticism. And he’ll show you how to take the performance out of sex for good.

You’ll learn what Marty means when he says “Sex is more than an activity—it’s an idea.”

In this keynote, you will learn:
  • Why focusing on improving performance undermines, rather than enhances, sex;
  • Why improving desire and satisfaction involves emotional skills more than technical ones;
  • How to understand the role of Normality Anxiety in sexual decision-making;
  • What to focus on during sex instead of “function” and “dysfunction;”
  • Why self-help books and websites can make sexual difficulties worse;
  • Why we should emphasize the similarities between male and female sexuality more than the differences.

He founded his own recording studio, as well as succeeded at one of the most important production and management companies of artists in Mexico and as the Director of New Business and Coordinator in the Music Channel Division of Televisa Networks.

In 2009, his doctor gave him less than 6 years left to live. Javier decided to leave the world of television to concentrate on healing his body and restarting his life. His journey to be “reborn” led him through Mexico, France, Brazil, China, Spain, India, Panama and the U.S.A. studying Yoga, Meditation, holistic and alternative therapies and nutrition systems to heal the body and the mind.

In 2018, Javier published his first book “Renacer en 90 Días” (R90D).

However, her immense passion to heal through fitness, healthy eating and exploring the world led her to leave the corporate world in 2013 with a commitment to educating others on the benefits of well-being and traveling. She fell in love with yoga for its self-healing properties and has been practicing since 2008.

Sara is featured as the Ambassador of Sanctifly Wellness Travel App and the Face of Fitness and Well-Being for both the international brand, Club Quarters Hotel, and New York City’s stylish Park Terrace Hotel on Bryant Park for in-room fitness and guide for healthy travel tips.

He is also a consultant and speaker in the field of organizational agility and high performance organizations.

Winning in a New World
While change has always been on the forefront of management thinking, the accelerating rate of change witnessed in the past two decades has put increasing pressure on leaders and organizations to re-think the way they approach strategic thinking, planning and organizational design. Unless we understand the nature of change, we cannot adjust the way we lead, manage and succeed.

Entrepreneurs have traditionally been seen as agile decision-makers, but they have also been seen as weaker in operational discipline and execution. Growing and scaling the business are significant challenges for any entrepreneur and will depend on their ability to build solid management practices into their business. Without great management, great ideas run the risk of becoming struggling businesses.

In this session, Nadim will first highlight how the world is changing and the impact it is having on business success, before deep diving into three fundamental skill-sets needed to win in this new world.

In this session, you will learn to:
  • Understand what the main drivers of change are
  • Define a role for leadership in building high performance organizations
  • Drive results by developing a high-performance culture built on disciplined execution

Negotiation Master Class: Essential Strategies and Skills to Achieve Success
Negotiation underlies most successful business and social encounters. While there are some naturally gifted negotiators, most people have not had any formal instruction, and all too often rely on their instinct to navigate crucial conversations. The simple truth is that anyone can learn to bargain successfully.

Effective training and consistent application of key concepts can dramatically improve outcomes and allow individuals to become methodical, confident and purposeful negotiators. Skilled negotiators understand the importance of comprehensive planning, effective communication and the impact of perception, relationships, ethics and reputation. These attributes are valuable not just to ensure success in negotiation, but they are also critical to personal and professional success.

In this session, Mori Taheripour, expert negotiation strategist and educator, shares how negotiation can be the platform to find one’s voice and how bargaining allows us to build connections as we embrace similarities regardless of our differences.

The Negotiation Master Class topics will include:
  • Preparation, goal-setting and the impact of story-telling
  • Recognizing and claiming your power
  • Assuming abundance and rejecting fear
  • Creating win-win strategies and transforming competition into cooperation

In this session, you will learn:
  • Successful preparation for any negotiation begins with self-reflection and having a clear understanding of your values and interests.
  • Empathy, respect and curiosity build credibility and trust, resulting in long-term success.
  • The essence of bargaining isn’t the transaction; it’s the conversation and the human connection that account for its success.

Tech Humanity: The Superpowers of Man and Machine
“Everybody wants growth but nobody wants change.”
Paul Roemer – Nobel Prize for Economics

Today, we live in a world where the rate of change surpasses the ability to adapt. Currently, most conversations regarding technology focus on the brave new world of AI and machines replacing humans. We need to move pass the hype, and start focusing on the next stage of technology. How does it serve us? Often, we overly focus on the next big thing in tech and ignore its role in delivering value to society.

As such, the next big thing in tech should be humanity!

Technology is impacting and changing what it truly means to be human. Our behaviors, preferences and mindsets are vastly different, and the pace of change is dizzying. Companies need to truly understand what is at the heart of this change and how we can tap into this evolution in order to compete and prosper.

In this session, you will learn:
  • The technology drivers that are changing what it means to be human
  • How to put humanity at the center of tech-design
  • The superpowers of tech humanity for a better future

Hearing The Call: Having The Courage To Answer
Every single one of us has a calling. Whether we recognize or not, whether we believe we are capable of it or not; yes, even whether we like it or not. There is something that each of us is here to do and be in this world that only we can do and be. It lives in the center of our most authentic selves, it represents our highest contribution and it creates our greatest impact. As an entrepreneur, part of the way we each express that calling is through our entrepreneurial journey. The vehicles we choose may change and evolve over time, but the call is still the call. Some of us easily identify and run towards it with open arms while others shy away, bury it, and even move in the other direction. What does it take to find and embrace this new frontier? How does it shift and change at every stage of growth and evolution in our lives? What are the 3 most common concerns that plague our ability to answer? And what is available to us and our respective and collective businesses and worlds if we do? In this closing keynote, Rha Goddess, Founder & CEO of Move The Crowd takes us on a soul-searching expedition, through the lens of personal story and deep inquiry to discover our own unique invitation to rise into the truth of who we really are as entrepreneurs and in service to the difference we are here to make in this world.

In this session, you will:
  • Engage in an honest exploration of your own unique entrepreneurial journey and calling.
  • Identify your own personal opportunities and challenges when it comes to embracing your calling.
  • Become profoundly connected to the difference you want to make in the world.
  • Examine how your calling wants to be expressed at this stage of your life and your venture.

Breakout Session: Marty Klein

11:45 AM 01:00 PM Sala VI, Gallery Level, Cascais Miragem

Sexual Intelligence for Entrepreneurs
In business, as we all know, performance is central.
In the world of sex and relationships, however, performance takes a back seat to many other things. These include intimacy, desire, empathy, communication, and most of all, emotional presence.
Satisfying sexuality involves much more than friction. And so to make sex more enjoyable—and to increase desire—better performance is not the answer. In fact, focusing on better performance undermines sex. It fills sex with anxiety, makes sex mechanical, and it creates emotional distance. It ultimately decreases desire, because people can fail. And no one hates to fail more than an entrepreneur.
What most people really want from sex is a sense of relaxation, playfulness, self-acceptance, and connection. And to feel special and desired. And so the familiar tools of entrepreneurs—working harder, solving “problems”—don’t work.
But if enhancing sexual satisfaction isn’t about better performance—or exotic positions, new toys, or losing ten pounds—what does make sex more enjoyable? What does enhance desire?
Master sex therapist and marriage counselor Dr. Marty Klein will discuss Sexual Intelligence—what it is, how we develop it, and how it can lead to more pleasure and intimacy. He’ll discuss how to create sex at which no one can fail. He’ll talk about how people can transition from lust-driven sex to adult eroticism. And he’ll show you how to take the performance out of sex for good.
You’ll learn what Marty means when he says “Sex is more than an activity—it’s an idea.”
In this keynote, you will learn:

Breakout Session: Mori Taheripour

11:45 AM 01:00 PM Sala XII, Lobby Level, Cascais Miragem

Negotiation Master Class: Essential Strategies and Skills to Achieve Success
Negotiation underlies most successful business and social encounters. While there are some naturally gifted negotiators, most people have not had any formal instruction, and all too often rely on their instinct to navigate crucial conversations. The simple truth is that anyone can learn to bargain successfully.
Effective training and consistent application of key concepts can dramatically improve outcomes and allow individuals to become methodical, confident and purposeful negotiators. Skilled negotiators understand the importance of comprehensive planning, effective communication and the impact of perception, relationships, ethics and reputation. These attributes are valuable not just to ensure success in negotiation, but they are also critical to personal and professional success.
In this session, Mori Taheripour, expert negotiation strategist and educator, shares how negotiation can be the platform to find one’s voice and how bargaining allows us to build connections as we embrace similarities regardless of our differences.
The Negotiation Master Class topics will include:
  • Preparation, goal-setting and the impact of story-telling
  • Recognizing and claiming your power
  • Assuming abundance and rejecting fear
  • Creating win-win strategies and transforming competition into cooperation
In this session, you will learn:
  • Successful preparation for any negotiation begins with self-reflection and having a clear understanding of your values and interests.
  • Empathy, respect and curiosity build credibility and trust, resulting in long-term success.
  • The essence of bargaining isn’t the transaction; it’s the conversation and the human connection that account for its success.

Breakout Session: Marty Klein

02:00 PM 03:15 PM Sala VI, Gallery Level, Cascais Miragem

Sexual Intelligence for Entrepreneurs
In business, as we all know, performance is central.
In the world of sex and relationships, however, performance takes a back seat to many other things. These include intimacy, desire, empathy, communication, and most of all, emotional presence.
Satisfying sexuality involves much more than friction. And so to make sex more enjoyable—and to increase desire—better performance is not the answer. In fact, focusing on better performance undermines sex. It fills sex with anxiety, makes sex mechanical, and it creates emotional distance. It ultimately decreases desire, because people can fail. And no one hates to fail more than an entrepreneur.
What most people really want from sex is a sense of relaxation, playfulness, self-acceptance, and connection. And to feel special and desired. And so the familiar tools of entrepreneurs—working harder, solving “problems”—don’t work.
But if enhancing sexual satisfaction isn’t about better performance—or exotic positions, new toys, or losing ten pounds—what does make sex more enjoyable? What does enhance desire?
Master sex therapist and marriage counselor Dr. Marty Klein will discuss Sexual Intelligence—what it is, how we develop it, and how it can lead to more pleasure and intimacy. He’ll discuss how to create sex at which no one can fail. He’ll talk about how people can transition from lust-driven sex to adult eroticism. And he’ll show you how to take the performance out of sex for good.
You’ll learn what Marty means when he says “Sex is more than an activity—it’s an idea.”
In this keynote, you will learn:
  • Why focusing on improving performance undermines, rather than enhances, sex;
  • Why improving desire and satisfaction involves emotional skills more than technical ones;
  • How to understand the role of Normality Anxiety in sexual decision-making;
  • What to focus on during sex instead of “function” and “dysfunction;”
  • Why self-help books and websites can make sexual difficulties worse;
  • Why we should emphasize the similarities between male and female sexuality more than the differences.

Why Capable People Suffer from Impostor Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It
The actor Mike Myers once said, “At any time, I still expect that the no-talent police will come and arrest me.” He’s not alone. Millions of people around the world — from senior leaders to bright college students to Oscar winners — secretly worry they’re not as bright and capable as other people “think” they are. It’s called the impostor syndrome and it hurts individuals and the bottom line. Fortunately, there is a cure.
In this lively and surprisingly upbeat interactive talk you’ll discover:
  • Why the impostor syndrome is not “just low self-esteem.”
  • Creative ways “impostors” discount or minimize their success.
  • Perfectly good reasons why smart people feel like frauds.
  • How your personal “Competence Type” may be setting you (or your employees) up to fall short.
  • Procrastination, workaholism, and other unconscious coping strategies “impostors” use to avoid being found out.
  • The high cost of the impostor syndrome to organizations.
  • Why women may be both more susceptible to and held back by impostor feelings.
  • The critically important difference between people who feel like impostors and those who don’t – and why it matters.
  • Three practical, immediately usable strategies to deal with impostor syndrome for yourself or your employees.
You’ll walk away with practical, immediately usable strategies to help yourself, your employees, and even your children to interrupt the impostor syndrome and end needless self-doubt.

Tech Humanity: The Superpowers of Man and Machine
“Everybody wants growth but nobody wants change.”
Paul Roemer – Nobel Prize for Economics
Today, we live in a world where the rate of change surpasses the ability to adapt. Currently, most conversations regarding technology focus on the brave new world of AI and machines replacing humans. We need to move pass the hype, and start focusing on the next stage of technology. How does it serve us? Often, we overly focus on the next big thing in tech and ignore its role in delivering value to society.
As such, the next big thing in tech should be humanity!
Technology is impacting and changing what it truly means to be human. Our behaviors, preferences and mindsets are vastly different, and the pace of change is dizzying. Companies need to truly understand what is at the heart of this change and how we can tap into this evolution in order to compete and prosper.

  • The technology drivers that are changing what it means to be human
  • How to put humanity at the center of tech-design

The Casa Ermelinda Freitas has been dedicated to wine production since 1920.

The surrounding river breeze cools the vines during the dry summers, offering softness and elegance to the wines.

Following Casa Ermelinda, you will enjoy lunch at your next stop, José Maria da Fonseca winery. José Maria da Fonseca is one of the older wine brands in Portugal. After visiting this cellar, you will know everything about the famous Moscatel and even find out why it’s forbidden to kill spiders!
