I bet Terry Bradshaw is good. I almost laugh out loud every Sunday when he's on.

I would have to say Colin Powell. I heard him speak a couple years ago and he is an incredible speaker - very energetic and enthusiastic. If you have a chance to hear him, take it.

I would have to agree with Grace Hopper. She was a priceless jewel.

Dr. David DeWitt is the one person that I would never miss as a keynote speaker.

Steve,

Love him or hate him (and sometimes I do) I do have to agree that Bill Gates is one great speaker. One of my favorites, is his "11 rules of life" that he gives from time to time to all the kids out there. It's a classic.:-D

Rule 1: Life is not fair -- get used to it!

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping -- they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

"Technology is a weird thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other. ...:-D"

I would add Mark Russinovich. He is one of the best Microsoft has.
