            John was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, he created a massive explosion in his garage and was burned on 100% of his body. Given less than a 1% chance of survival, John is proof of the power of the human spirit. His unlikely recovery meant a journey of pain and loss that could have easily been insurmountable. But his experience wasn’t alone. You’ll be moved from tears to laughter as John highlights the intimate involvement of those that helped him along the way. From a dedicated Hall of Fame sports announcer to a visionary burn nurse (and countless others), every individual involved in the 1987 fire and its aftermath teaches us this truth—one person can make a profound difference in the lives of others. Using his fire story as a backdrop, John will inspire you to take back your life, see the abundant possibility within your professional and personal challenges, and change the world.

            The term “Embrace the Shake” is coined from Artist Phil Hansen’s personal story of transformation. After developing a career-ending tremor in his drawing hand, Phil embraced his “shake” both physically and metaphorically by redefining his limitation as an impetus for creativity. Phil not only restored his artistic abilities, he became a much more creative and innovative artist than ever before. Upon sharing his message on the TED stage and millions subsequently after, “Embrace the Shake” has become a motto for many businesses to approach their limitations in a new way. Phil’s powerful message of finding creativity within limitations will inspire you to stop looking on the outside, and start looking inside yourself for resources that can transform your challenges into opportunities for success. Like Phil’s art, “Embrace the shake” isn’t just a talk, it’s an experience! Through jaw-dropping visuals and LIVE interactive art, get ready to break preconceived assumptions, activate your creative capacity, and bring fresh ways of viewing the task at hand that will culminate with success.

            This presentation will focus on medical malpractice trends from the past, present and future. Dr. Billingham will explore the historical origins of malpractice and their impact on medical practice. Current trends in both frequency and severity will be examined as well as the ‘lessons learned’ from these claims. Lastly, we will look into the future to see where emerging risk will come from with the changing healthcare platform and explosion of new technology such as artificial intelligence in medicine.

            The Ranger motto is Rangers Lead the Way. Leadership is the core of every skill developed as a Ranger. But, leadership is not a position but rather an example set by every Ranger. Whether approaching the beaches of Normandy or the mountain ranges of Afghanistan, the world is made better when leadership is owned by each member of the team. Keni Thomas’ stories of Task Force Ranger are extraordinary examples of leadership. And, the stories are not about Generals, Colonels or Captains. For example, Private David Floyd was in charge of one person that day—himself. But his leadership and example saved lives. In the pace of life, it is easy to lose perspective on our value to others. Make no mistake—your presence is crucial! The individuals to the left and right are directly affected by the result of your actions. Each team is a puzzle with invaluable pieces. When you raise your hand or assume a task, you have put on the “uniform.” Duty follows that responsibility. Good is never enough because better is expected. Keni helps attendees see themselves in the light of extraordinary. It is a choice made by many each day to impact those around them. It is the ultimate definition of LEADING the WAY…

            This is probably the best conference I’ve ever been to. The motivational speakers are outstanding. You’re just left with a really good feeling. And then the professional part of the program was outstanding as well. Some really top-notch speakers and their specialties and I felt like I learned a whole lot.

            I choose to come to EXPLORE because it’s well put together. It’s been organized from the top down very well. Every year the speakers have been very good. It makes me think beyond medicine. Sometimes it’s about adventure, sometimes it’s about crises but each time it pulls us out of our silos of medicine and puts it into a different mind thought. I also enjoy the camaraderie of people that I don’t see for maybe once a year, but people I’ve known for maybe 20 to 30 years.

            EXPLORE provides a great avenue to meet with physicians and healthcare workers around the state to educate them on some of the newer things we have as far as technology and advances in treatment for cancer. PLICO has done a great job with this conference and getting their brand name out there.
