During these twelve years, Gravance immersed himself in the Disney culture, developing a seasoned resume with the company and garnering numerous awards for his work along the way. He trained thousands of new-hires at Disney University, and was invited to design, develop and deliver the premier roster of business programs used by hundreds of corporate clients who took part in various courses and training offered at the Disney Institute. Gravance is the recipient of the Disney Partners in Excellence Award and the Spirit of Disney Award and has been recognized internationally as a Disney keynote speaker, having begun his professional speaking engagements on behalf of Disney in 1998.
Gravance continues to offer clients unique training programs with incorporated themes such as “Great Service Serves the Server First!” and powerful initiatives including “NOW Management” and “The Service Power”. And while corporate and employee growth is serious business, humor and heart remain at the center of every Louie Gravance presentation because he also knows, from experience, there’s no business BUT show business!

Executive Speakers Bureau is thrilled to partner with Carl Bernstein and other select speakers bureaus as the legendary journalist continues his illustrious speaking career. Few journalists in America’s history have had the impact on their era and their craft as Carl Bernstein. For forty years, from All the President’s Men to A Woman-In-Charge: The Life of Hillary Clinton, Bernstein’s books, reporting, and commentary have revealed the inner-workings of government, politics, and the hidden stories of Washington and its leaders. In the early 1970s, Bernstein and Bob Woodward broke the Watergate story for The Washington Post, leading to the resignation of President Richard Nixon and setting the standard for modern investigative reporting, for which they and The Post were awarded the Pulitzer Prize.
Since then, Bernstein has continued to build on the theme he and Woodward first explored in the Nixon years – the use and abuse of power: political, media, financial, cultural and spiritual power. Bernstein is an excellent keynote choice for any audience, as he can speak on a plethora of subjects, from politics and government to the media and even rock and classical music.
