Celebrate National Ice Cream Month with Chef Missy Chase Lapine Recipe

Chef Missy Chase Lapine, a.k.a. “The Sneaky Chef,” is known for crafting delicious recipes that are secretly healthy for you! Her New York Times bestseller, The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals (2017), has advised parents on how to implement healthy eating habits into their children’s diets while avoiding the fuss.

Below is a taste of one of her healthy summer snacks:


Extra Sneaky Strawberry Breakfast Ice Cream

At first glance, I’m sure you’re thinking “Ice cream for breakfast? Where’s the healthiness in this?” Which is exactly what the Sneaky Chef wants you and your kids to think! However, these two-minute recipes are packed with nutritious ingredients, as you’ll see below. (Makes 2 servings)


  • ¼ ripe avocado
  • ½ cup frozen strawberries, without syrup or added sweeteners
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey or sugar


  1. Put all ingredients in food processor and puree on high — hold on tight. The first few seconds are a bit rough until the mixture smoothes out.
  2. Each makes about 1½ cups of ice cream.

Another sneaky hint: Make popsicles out of these ice creams by pouring them into ice pop molds and freezing the night before. It’s double the fun to eat it this way in the morning!

*In addition, these recipes can be quickly converted to a thinner smoothie by adding an extra ½ cup of milk to all the variations above and then mixing them in the blender. *

Missy Chase Lapine makes the connection between what you eat, how you feel, and disease and obesity prevention in her keynote presentations. Let her help you sneak in the world’s healthiest foods into your everyday life.

Three Astronaut Keynote Speakers Who Continue to Inspire

Yesterday marked 48 years since Neil Armstrong uttered these famous words just seconds after the Apollo 11’s historic moon-landing. This significant moment in American history brought an end to the Space Race of the 1960’s and ushered in a new era of advancements in space technology. The landmark event also gave NASA the credibility it needed to establish itself as a powerhouse in space exploration, which in turn paved the way for future astronauts: Mike Mullane, Alan Bean, and Rick Searfoss.

These 3 Astronaut keynote speakers continue to inspire people on earth with their captivating stories of space travel.


Mike Mullane joined NASA in 1978 as a part of the first group of Space Shuttle Astronauts. After completing three space missions aboard the shuttles Discovery (STS-41D) and Atlantis (STS-27 & 36), Colonel Mullane retired from NASA in 1990. His unique keynotes on teamwork, leadership, and safety educate and entertain audiences alike. Colonel Mullane’s recounts of his near death experiences keep audiences on the edge of their seats, while emphasizing the value of leadership.

Alan Bean became the fourth person to walk on the moon in November 1969 as apart of the Apollo 12 mission. Before his retirement in 1981, Captain Bean helped establish 11 world records and was awarded two NASA distinguished service medals. After NASA, Captain Bean turned to speaking and painting as forms of expression to convey the experiences that only a handful of men, including himself, can claim. Captain Bean’s keynotes help audiences reach their personal and professional potential.

Rick Searfoss joined NASA in 1990 and eventually went on to become one of less than 100 people to ever command a human space mission. During his time with NASA, Searfoss served as pilot on STS-76, STS-90, and STS-58—where he worked with a team to perform medical experiments that expanded our knowledge of human and animal physiology. Searfoss uses his spacecraft piloting experience to infuse his keynotes with themes of team building, leadership, and innovation.



While the Eagle may have landed almost half a century ago, Eagles Talent is always sure to land you the perfect speaker for your next event.

10 Keynote Speakers Who Defy Generational Differences With Millennials

I think the stigma surrounding millennials in the workplace can be attributed to rapid advancements in technology. Unlike Gen X, Y, and Z, technology has played a vital role in the formative years of Millennials.

As a millennial, I remember what it was like to have access to anything and everything on the internet. From a young age, we have been able to explore the depths of the world wide web, and because of this, we’ve taught ourselves a variety of skills and gained knowledge on all kinds of topics. However, some people have the notion that millennials have an attitude of irritating self-entitlement. Which is believed to be true for some, but should not be the perceived stereotype for all.

That stereotype often leads to a common problem in the business world, and can create a barrier between contrasting generations; disrupting the natural flow of conversation and ideas at the workplace. Personally, I believe each age group can genuinely learn something from one another, but by not taking the opportunity to work together, both sides run the risk of losing something that could be extremely beneficial.

The following 10 keynote speakers spent a lot of time and effort learning how different generations think. Any speaker would be an excellent candidate to give your organization compelling insight at your next event!

Devon Harris

Captain of the 1992 and 1998 Jamaican bobsledding team, Devon Harris worked hard with his team to rapidly become a 3-time Olympian. Previously, Devon worked as a service man and because of that, he became dedicated to conquering all obstacles with courage.

Devon now shares his story of perseverance and engages his crowds through his empowering messages during his keynote presentations. He continues to impact thousands of companies, non-profits, governmental organizations, schools and universities all over the map.


Mike Eruzione

United States Olympic Hockey Team captain, Mike Eruzione, led his team to Gold Medal victory in 1980 by hitting the winning puck in the game against the Soviet Union. Throughout his whole life, Mike has been apart of all-scholastic teams in baseball, football, and hockey so it’s no surprise he would soon end up in the Olympic Hall of Fame.

In addition to his successful sports career, he now balances his life between charity work, public speaking engagements, and serving as director of Development for Boston University Athletics. As a speaker, he provides encouraging life lessons and triumphant energy that leaves audiences inspired.


Angela Ruggiero

Angela Ruggiero competed in four Olympics with the U.S. Olympic Ice Hockey Team, winning a gold medal in 1998, silver in 2002 and 2010, and bronze in 2006.

Nikki Stone

Two years prior to winning America’s first-ever Olympic Champion in the sport of inverted aerials, Nikki Stone had a chronic injury that prevented her from standing and walking, let alone skiing down a slope. So to say her recovery was remarkable would be an understatement.

Throughout her career, she went on to receive 35 World Cup medals, eleven World Cup titles, four national titles, two year-long Aerial World Cup titles, and a World Championship title.

Nikki has overcome all kinds of obstacles and because of that, she delivers a compelling message to her audiences about believing in themselves despite the odds.


Amy Purdy

When Amy Purdy was given less than a 2% chance of survival, put on life support and placed into a coma; no one could have expected her outstanding recovery. Although Amy was diagnosed with Meningococcal Meningitis and had to have her legs amputated, that did not stop her from breaking records and becoming one of the top ranked adaptive snowboarders in the world, and the 2014 Paralympic Bronze Medalist.

She has been cheered on by millions through her snowboarding competitions, performances on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, working alongside Oprah Winfrey during Oprah’s “The Life You Want” Tour, and plenty more of achievements still in the making!

Amy’s keynote presentations can instill a sense of drive into any audience because she shares the story on how she challenged herself to and attain goals that even those who have both legs struggle to achieve.

Amelia Rose Earhart Reflects on 3rd Anniversary of her Flight Around the World

Three years ago today, I learned the beauty in learning to love the turbulence. Today is the anniversary of the completion of our flight around the world. 28,000 miles, 14 countries, 18 days, unlimited beauty and reasons to soar.

If I seem quiet or a little off today, it’s because I’m back in the cockpit of the PC-12, staring toward the horizon, waiting to see the Golden Gate Bridge after crossing the Pacific.

The lessons I’ve learned are burned into my soul…

The world is full of reasons to keep flying, but it’s also full of reasons to give up. Learn to control the volume on the later.

The world is filled with reasons to connect and love, but it’s also filled with hate, anger and conflict. Keep connecting, keep loving… be aware of the hate, but don’t let it stain your outlook on what it means to treat others well.

The world is filled with people who will support you, encourage you and give you a helping hand. The world is also full of people who are consumed with sadness, which will translate to criticism, mockery and painful attacks of other’s goals and actions. Remember this: the world is changed by our actions, not by our opinions.

Thank you to my family and friends, thank you to my team of close to 100 people who made the flight possible, thank you to the tens of thousands of strangers who cheered us on from afar, and thank you to my critics who made me stay up later, learn more, focus with more intent, and smile wider even when I was holding back tears.

Most of all, thank you to Shane Jordan, my co-pilot on that wild journey. For eighteen days, the world belonged to the dreamers. We chased the sun in the morning and ran from it at dusk, tracing the equator at 27k feet.

Turbulence often occurs when we are crossing mountains… and those who stay locked up in a hangar will never feel the bumps.”



More on Amelia Rose Earhart

Read her comment on recent History Channel Documentary claiming the original Amelia Earhart, survived plane crash!

You’ve undoubtedly seen the recently discovered photo that may prove Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan landed in the Marshall Islands. The image made headline news because the world is still fascinated by Amelia’s tenacious and adventurous spirit, even eighty years after her disappearance. My parents named me after a woman who knew the risk and proceeded anyway, daring to show the world that adventure is “worthwhile in itself”. For me, the image is exciting because it supports the idea that Amelia was the type of person who course corrected when turbulence came her way. Rather than give up when Howland Island was no longer an option, she rerouted, and headed West, knowing that turbulence sometimes forces us to change our plans. To be honest, Im not sure what I believe about what happened to Amelia and Fred, I’ll let others focus on her disappearance… as for me, I’ll focus on what she stood for while she was living: striving to explore, seek and love the turbulence along her flight path. It’s important to remember that those who never leave the hangar will never have the privilege of feeling the bumps along the way.

Meet Two Keynote Speakers Who are Making Waves of Change for the Ocean

February Eblast image1

National Ocean Month is held every June, and celebrates all the resources and incredible creatures of the sea. It was originally created in 1983, with the goal to recognize the importance of harnessing the seas for our country’s national security and growth.

These two keynote speakers are oceanographers who are known for their successful explorations. From developing technology for underwater expeditions, to discovering the Titanic wreckage — they have both made great contributions to the oceans.

Dr. Robert Ballard

dr. robert ballardFormer United States Navy officer and a professor of oceanography, Dr. Robert Ballard, is most known for his famous Titanic discovery. Dr. Robert is very active in the ocean community with roles such as being the founder and President of the Ocean Exploration Trust, Director of the Center for Ocean Exploration and more. He is a pioneer in the development of deep-sea submersibles and remotely operated vehicle systems, and has taken part in more than 140 deep-sea expeditions. In 1985, Dr. Robert discovered the RMS Titanic, and has succeeded in tracking down numerous other significant shipwrecks. He also discovered hydrothermal vents and “black smokers” in the Galapagos Rift and East Pacific Rise. As a keynote speaker, Dr. Robert shares fascinating stories from his deep-sea expeditions, and connects them to topics such as science and goal setting.

David Gallo

david galloA pioneer in ocean exploration, David Gallo is an enthusiastic ambassador about the relationship between humanity and the sea. For more than 30 years, David has been at the forefront of ocean exploration, participating in the development of new technologies and scientific discoveries that help shape the view of our planet. He is a firm believer that humans need to recognize the oceans critical role in providing the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat — and not take advantage of them. In his keynote presentations, David conveys the excitement and importance of ocean exploration to his audiences. He has spoken internationally to audiences ranging from children to CEO’s, has done 8 TED Talks, and has appeared in numerous documentaries to share his insight.

Keynote Speaker & Tech Expert, Beth Ziesenis has 5 Tips for a Productive Flight

Bethbeth z Ziesenis, also known as “Your Nerdy Best Friend”, is a technology consultant, author and professional speaker. With recent talks of a potential laptop travel ban in flights, Beth was interviewed by INC. to give her advice on how professionals can remain productive without their laptops on a plane.

So what’s her hack? Your smartphone! 

According to Beth, a phone will never replace a laptop, but it can be useful for responding to emails, writing documents or planning schedules.

Check out Beth’s five tips to see how you can make the most out of your phone:

1. Use a bigger phone

If you travel on a regular basis, it will be useful to have a phone with a bigger screen. This is going to be a replacement for your laptop, so the less stress on your eyes, the better!

2. Try a Bluetooth keyboard

A bluetooth keyboard can connect to almost any device, and it will mimic the feel of a laptop when you want to type long documents. And for late night flights, most keyboards have a backlight so you can comfortably see in a dark cabin.

3. Use a phone stand

This works perfectly with tip #2! The pull down tray is a great place to set up your phone stand and it makes the bluetooth keyboard easier to use. Many phone cases are made with built-in stands, which takes up even less space.

4. Get a backup battery source

With Beth’s method, you’re phone will be running more apps and lose battery faster. But an external battery pack can help your phone last throughout a flight, just in case your seat doesn’t include a charger port.

5. Plan ahead

This final tip is the key to making the most of your phone. According to Beth, you have to pay attention to the small features. For example, checking if your apps allow you to work offline or sync to other devices, lets you know how functional they will be in-flight.
