An Evening with Henry Winkler

Brought to you by

From his breakout role as The Fonz on Happy Days to his current role co-starring as acting coach Gene Cousineau on the hit HBO dark comedy Barry, Henry Winkler has enjoyed over four decades of success as an actor, producer, and director. His big-screen credits include Night Shift, The Waterboy, and The Lords of Flatbush

On stage, Henry has appeared on Broadway in Neil Simon’s The Dinner Party and The Performers. Beyond the stage and screen, Henry is a New York Times best-selling author. Niagara Falls or Does It? Hank Zipzer the World’s Greatest Underachiever, his first of 34 children’s books written with co-author Lin Oliver, was inspired by his own struggles in school due to undiagnosed dyslexia.

As a speaker, Winkler’s humorous anecdotes, inspirational life lessons about overcoming adversity, and tales of his storied career in entertainment, leave audiences inspired as well as entertained. His passion for supporting others is the result of a lifetime struggle with undiagnosed dyslexia, and he works tirelessly advocating for those who learn differently.

Are We Being Bold Enough?

What does innovation mean for the next generation of senior living customers?  Will they be our customers?  Is increased longevity a blessing or a curse?

You won’t be disappointed!

Surviving a Crash Landing 

Brought to you by

Massive success and its aftermath have sent many artists into oblivion, forever trying to recapture the moment when the world first bowed at their feet. That moment came for Brian Vander Ark when, as the lead singer and principal songwriter for The Verve Pipe, he sold more than 3 million albums worldwide and produced a string of hit singles, including the #1 song “The Freshmen.

The rollercoaster of success can sometimes take a dramatic turn, and even worse; a crash. In this candid talk, Brian will examine how a rise and fall feels and, more importantly, how to walk away professionally stronger, and emotionally sound.
