Meet the speakers
Canadian born TV personality Howie Mandel has amassed a prolific career lasting more than 30 years. While many know him from his current stint as a judge on the widely popular TV show America’s Got Talent and his role as former host of the game show Deal or No Deal, he also participated in a wide variety of other shows. Mandel’s success is not limited to solely one media. His memoir, Here the Deal: Don’t Touch Me, that covers a variety of topics and personal issues—including his self-proclaimed germaphobia—was a New York Times bestseller.
Troy Aikman spent his entire 12-year football career as the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. Entering the league as the first-overall pick of the 1989 NFL Draft, he enjoyed legendary success, setting 45 franchise passing records and leading his team to six divisional titles, four conference championship games, and three Super Bowls—a feat done by only three quarterbacks besides Aikman in the history of the NFL. Aikman was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006; and his work as a five-time Super Bowl broadcaster for NFL on Fox earned him an Emmy nomination.
