Anthony Bourdain, he turned out to be universally popular with the release of his initial book, “Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly” in 2000. In 2001, he published the book “A Cook’s Tour” and furthermore hosted a network show by a similar name.
In 2005, he started hosting the Travel Channel’s culinary and social experience programs “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” and “The Layover”. As opposed to filling in as a gourmet expert at a specific foundation, he voyages, cooks, and recounts stories in prevalent books and TV shows.
He has additionally composed the books “The Nasty Bits”, “Anthony Bourdain’s Les Halles Cookbook”, “Bone in the Throat”, Gone Bamboo”, Typhoid Mary: A Urban Historical”, “No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach .
In 2007, Bourdain and his wife, Ottavia, became parents to their daughter, Ariane. The couple and their daughter trained in jiu-jitsu fighting and Bourdain gave up his longstanding smoking habit. They separated amicably in 2016.
It doesn’t appear that family life has slowed Bourdain down a bit. He continues to entertain us with his unique mix of grit and class, simplicity and sophistication, street food and four-star fare. You never know what you’re going to get with Bourdain except that it will be real. His dream project is to open the Bourdain Market at Pier 57 in New York City, a giant food hall with dozens of vendors celebrating street food from cultures around the world.

Michael Phelps, American swimmer, who was the most-decorated athlete in Olympic history with 28 medals, which included a record 23 gold. At the 2008 Games in Beijing, he became the first athlete to win eight gold medals at a single Olympics.
Phelps was raised in a family of swimmers and joined the prestigious North Baltimore Aquatic Club at age seven. He finished fifth in the 200-metre butterfly at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. At the 2001 U.S. spring nationals, he became at age 15 the youngest world-record holder in men’s swimming when he posted 1 min 54.92 sec in the 200-metre butterfly.
He went on that year to win his first international title at the world championships in Fukuoka, Japan. He claimed five medals at the 2002 Pan Pacific championships, including three gold (200-metre and 400-metre individual medley [IM] and 4 × 100-metre medley relay). At the U.S. spring nationals in 2003, he became the first male swimmer to claim titles in three different strokes at a single national championship, and he later broke an unprecedented five individual world records at the world championships in Barcelona, Spain. Phelps also captured five titles at the U.S. summer nationals—the most won by a male swimmer at a single championship.
Phelps’s retirement was short-lived, as he announced his return to competitive swimming in April 2014. In October of that year, he was suspended by USA Swimming for six months after he was charged with driving under the influence, his second such arrest; the first had occurred in 2004. Phelps was the American flag-bearer at the opening ceremonies of the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games, which were his fifth Games, a record for an American male swimmer.
There he added to his unparalleled medal count by winning golds in the 200-metre IM, 4 × 100-metre medley relay, 4 × 100-metre freestyle relay, and 4 × 200-metre freestyle relay as well as a silver in the 100-metre butterfly. It was his gold in his signature event, the 200-metre butterfly, that captured the most international attention.
The finals of that race featured South Africa’s Chad le Clos, who had beaten Phelps by five-hundredths of a second in the race at the 2012 Games and who had exchanged verbal barbs with the American over the following four years. Before the race, cameras caught le Clos warming up in front of Phelps, who fixed an icy stare upon his rival that instantly became a meme on social media platforms. In the following race, Phelps eked out a victory by four-hundredths of a second and had an uncharacteristically exuberant celebration in the pool. Having completed his improbably dominant comeback at the 2016 Games, he again retired from competitive swimming.

He rediscovered his love for art, and now plays in the business world by working through his artistic expression. Erik’s on-stage painting seamlessly becomes a visual metaphor that is the core of his message, encouraging organizations toward profitability through innovations and superior performance.

Widely considered one of the greatest tennis players of all time, Agassi earned 60 men’s singles titles, including eight Grand Slams, over a 20-year career that was characterized by a talent, drive and passion that transcended the game. Since retiring from tennis in 2006, Agassi has increased his focus on the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education, which has raised over $180 million for education reform since he founded it back in 1994.
A tennis prodigy who began playing the game at the age of three, Agassi enjoyed a meteoric rise up the rankings after turning professional at the age of 16. He overcame the disappointment of losing his first three Grand Slam finals to win at Wimbledon in 1992, and would go on to become the first male player in history to win all four of the Grand Slam titles, as well as the Olympic gold medal, in one year. Over the course of his career, Agassi was forced to overcome many hurdles as he battled with both the physical demands of the game and the intense psychological pressure that came with his fame and fortune.
In addition to his incredible achievements in tennis, Agassi has devoted much of his time to the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education, which he founded in 1994. Since retiring in 2006, Andre Agassi has increased his focus on his foundation and on promoting education reform, raising $180 million dollars to date to benefit its mission. In 2009, he released his autobiography, Open, which reached the number one spot on the New York Times bestseller list, and in 2011 he was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
Andre Agassi spoke at the WOBI Forum NYC, and he covered the following Topics:
Talent is just the start: What it takes to become the best in the world and sustain success over the long term.
Developing the mental strength to give you the edge when the pressure is on.
Getting your team right: Identifying the skills and characteristics you need in those around you.
How to bounce back from the inevitable setbacks, failures and criticisms.
Setting goals and staying true to yourself: On authenticity and the importance of giving back.
