Raising the Bar: How the Movies Changed Jurists and Clients’ Perspectives

DR. ROBERT JAMES is the author of the book series, WHO Won?!? An Irreverent Look at the Oscars. In each volume, he goes through the year’s movies and creates what should have happened at the Oscars: which movies should have been nominated (or not); which movies should have won (or not). Currently finishing up the third volume for 1952–1963, he has seen more than 2,000 movies for the project thus far. He earned his doctorate from UCLA in 1995; he has been a teacher and scholar for over 25 years, and is a renowned expert in both science fiction and film. He has been a featured speaker at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and as a moderator and panelist at numerous world science fiction conventions, as well as several national Popular Culture Association gatherings. Sometimes he even remembers that he is married with children, who often play hide and seek behind the piles of DVDs, but he always manages to find them.

Hyrum W. Smith - The Power of Perception

Materials>>

HYRUM W. SMITH, co-founder and former CEO of FranklinCovey, is a highly sought after keynote speaker and author. For nearly three decades he has been motivating people to see reality more clearly and to gain better control of their personal and professional lives. His engaging delivery combines wit and enthusiasm with a gift for communicating powerful concepts that have lasting value and help bring about personal change.

After serving in the United States Army as the field commander of a Pershing missile battery in Germany, Hyrum graduated from Brigham Young University in 1971. He went to work with ADP, a pioneering data processing firm, where he rose to become senior vice president for sales. In 1981, he formed his own training company, Golden Eagle Motivation, focusing on sales management. Later Hyrum worked as a consultant for a time management training company.

In 1983, he helped create the widely used Franklin Day Planner, and formed Franklin Quest Co. to produce the Planner and train individuals and organizations in the time management principles on which the Planner was based. Hyrum continued to serve as vice-chairman of the board of Franklin Covey Co., successor company to Franklin Quest. He helped found The Galileo Initiative in 2001 to focus on teaching and training some of the core concepts he has come to feel the most deeply about in his years of training and motivating people.
