AGS Announces Keynote and Emcee Lineup for Conclave 2018

AGS Announces Keynote and Emcee Lineup for Conclave 2018  The American Gem Society announced its three keynote speakers for Conclave 2018, in Nashville, TN, April 23-25.

• The legendary Marie Osmond, world-famous entertainer and entrepreneur, will open Conclave on Monday, April 23.

• Jon Dorenbos famed magician, professional football player, and one of the most sought-after speakers today, will be the breakfast keynote on Tuesday, April 24.

• On Wednesday, April 25, Mike Rayburn, world-class guitarist, will strike a chord in Music City as that day’s keynote speaker. Returning as Emcee—and featured speaker—will be Joel Zeff, back for his third straight Conclave.

“We are so excited about this lineup, and there is more great news to follow in the upcoming weeks,” said Katherine Bodoh, RJ, CEO of the American Gem Society and AGS Laboratories. “Conclave is known for its talented lineup of sought-after speakers and this year is no exception.”

Marie Osmond has spent five iconic decades in the entertainment business performing as a successful singer, television performer and talk show host, dancer, actor, author, entrepreneur and public speaker. She has continued to maintain relevance, remaining an instantly recognizable figure across the globe.

Ms. Osmond is a multiple gold and platinum selling artist and CMA winner, garnering numerous Billboard chart-topping singles and albums, and three New York Times Bestselling books. She has entertained millions throughout the world through television, radio, film, literature, live concerts and Broadway performances. As a philanthropist, she co-founded Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, which has raised over five billion dollars for children to date.

Jon Dorenbos graduated from the University of Texas, El Paso, with a degree in Business. He was picked up by the Buffalo Bills as a free agent in 2003, but has since played for the Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles. He is currently playing for the New Orleans Saints and entering his 16th season in the NFL.

Looking for a means to overcome a childhood tragedy, Mr. Dorenbos got into magic just before his 13th birthday. Magic became an escape during a time of mourning and transition in his life. Mr. Dorenbos talks about overcoming adversity while entertaining the audience with sleight of hand magic.

Mike Rayburn uses guitar and comedy to teach three simple, powerful tools which took him from playing empty bars, to headlining Carnegie Hall—eight times!

Being a successful artist, as well as a savvy entrepreneur and business owner, Mike Rayburn is uniquely qualified to teach artistic principles in a business context, to give businesses and organizations the edge they so desperately need to innovate and perform at peak “virtuoso” levels… and thus transform their success and significance.

Joel Zeff connected with the American Gem Society audience as a featured speaker in 2015, and was so well received that the AGS asked him to return as emcee in 2016 and 2017. He’s back again this year doing double-duty as both the Master of Ceremony and a featured speaker on Opening Day.
