KEYNOTE - HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN LUCK
A small town guy from Michigan, Antonio Neves moved to New York City with just $600 in his pocket. Even though he knew just one person, slept on a floor for almost a year and had to work multiple jobs just to survive, he went on to build a successful career with top television networks and today as an entrepreneur. In this keynote, a young professional and millennial favorite, Antonio breaks down his three steps to creating his own luck in his career, helping people understand how they can start setting themselves up for a better shot at success. These steps include “getting uncomfortable;” learning how to “Find the edge;” and asking the important question “Who makes you better?” As the famous quote goes, “Luck is where opportunity meets preparation.” This motivational program empowers attendees to take steps now so that they will be prepared to stand out.
KEYNOTE - #BELESSAWKWARD
Antonio Neves is a stellar communicator, having built a high-profile career in New York City as a correspondent with major television networks including NBC, BET and Nickelodeon. But, he wasn’t always the most interesting person in the room—to be honest, he started out downright awkward! Today, he is using the tips he has learned to help people from all walks of corporate life learn to be less awkward and communicate with confidence and class. Antonio stops poor communication in its tracks by helping attendees learn to share their stories. He teaches them that they can talk to anyone, even strangers, and that they can use influence and persuasion to help themselves by helping others.
"Antonio is a dynamic speaker and has been a hit at Big Omaha. He has a powerful message for entrepreneurs and young professionals that resonates from NYC to SF to the Silicon Prairie."
