In June 1990, while free rock climbing, Dõv Baron fell approximately 120 feet and landed on his face. The impact shattered most of the bone structure of his face, disintegrating some of his upper jaw and fracturing his lower jaw in four places. After nine reconstructive surgeries, no external evidence remains of the damage; however, this experience was life-changing.
Before the accident, Dõv had spent years building a reputation as a dynamic speaker and teacher in the field of personal and professional development but it wasn’t until sometime after the fall that he began to see the beauty and elegance of what had really happened – the return to his own CORE –what he calls his ‘Authentic Self’.
He was also the host and executive producer of the increasingly popular radio show, “Full Monty Leadership Show,” where Authentic Leaders Let it ALL hang out about loyalty, culture and growth, which broadcast out of Seattle, Chicago, Colorado and globally via the internet.

His “KIllTheKeynote” campaign to change the speaking industry went viral to over 5 million people on social media. He is now speaking for some of Europe’s wealthiest families at Scone Palace, NextGen leaders with UnleashWD and the Legacy Show, and top American c-suite leaders for The #CSuite Network.
In addition to being an author and a radio host, Dõv is also the leading expert on Developing Authentic Leadership and he is the world’s only Corporate Cultural Momentum Strategist, serving top performance individuals, corporations and organizations to generate both exponential growth and fierce loyalty.

RenukaCertified Communications Expert
Even though Renuka Baron’s formal education is in health sciences, she left her career in dentistry in 2004 to coordinate and co facilitate personal development seminars and training focusing on women’s empowerment, uncompromised relationships, parenting and leadership.
Renuka is a certified Communications Expert and has a licensed NLP Practitioner. She also mentors at Dov Baron’s Authentic Speaker Academy for Leadership which is billed as: The toughest speaker-leadership training on the planet. She is a full partner, co facilitator and mentor in Dov Baron International and Authentic Paragon Alliance who train executives and corporate leadership teams to become Full Monty (authentic) leaders.
Renuka’s philosophy is that women must let go of playing small and embrace their feminine power, confidently voice opinions, operate from a place of equality in all relationships, personal and professional. In turn they can create healthy loving environment in their homes and healthy models of empowered women for their daughters and sons who respect and value women as much as men.
She believes women’s realities can only change if each woman is willing to do what it takes to change it rather than waiting for someone else to take the reigns. Unfortunately, we still live in a society where women who challenge traditions that don’t serve us anymore, and laws that create separation instead of uniting us, can be perceived as bitches, even by other women.
Renuka Baron also is the author of Secret Confessions of Queen Bitch:
Stephan StavrakisPositioning Strategist
First and foremost, Stephan is a devoted husband and father of two who devotes his life’s work to his family. After working for a Canadian province wide insurance company and being part of team that reconstructed a business model that allowed that company to save 5million in annual revenues, Stephan decided it was time to go on his own.
His first company: 3D Thinking Inc, was a soft-skills training company. He built that company from scratch with no credibility, no connections, and no list. However, within nine months 3D Thinking Inc was Vancouver’s fastest growing and most profitable privately-owned soft-skills training organization.
Due to 3D Thinking Inc’s rapid growth many other trainers, speakers, authors and consultants approached Stephan to help them build their companies in similar fashion. As Stephan’s reputation for results grew brick & mortar companies such as restaurants, spa’s, salons, insurance companies, doctors, lawyers, and an array of others requested his assistance in re-positioning their business model. Once again his formula proved highly successful.
Currently Stephan has worked with 100’s of businesses internationally and has logged over 15,000 hrs of one-on-one strategic positioning. Consistently moving those business owners from the “me too” positions to becoming “The Only” business in their market. Doing so has consistently lowered costs and allowed these organizations to keep the focus on increasing both sales and the bottom line.
Stephan has gone on to developed a unique system he calls; “Perceptual Positioning” this system is currently being used by 100′s of individuals and organizations as the blue-print for designing their business offers, ads, websites, TV ads, taglines, distinction points etc.
Today Stephan’s insights and humor make him a highly sought after speaker. He is consistently rated as thought provoking and practical by the business audiences he addresses.
Give Stephan Stavrakis 5 minutes and he will turn your business upside down while bringing into focus lucrative opportunities that were completely missed by everyone else. He has an uncanny ability to see that which others are completely blind to when it comes to differentiating you and or your organization from those you perceived as your competition. Very often Stephan’s clients find themselves wondering: “Why didn’t I think of that?” because what he offers makes such perfect sense. He is focused, and highly expedient and as a result he has been known to take entire business models and reposition it for higher profitability within in just one conversation.
Stephan is a highly valued member of the Authentic Paragon Alliance team who works side-by-side, hand in hand with Dov Baron’s formulas, strategies and over all framework for assisting our clients and their organizations become Full Monty Leaders to create exponential growth and generate fierce loyalty and stand out from the crowd.

Francesco Lombardo FEA
Business Families of wealth are faced with a number of risks: Financial, operational, investment and behavioral risk. I believe behavioral risk of the individual family members is the biggest threat to a Business Family.
At Veritage I focus on the behavioral risks within the family and its impact on the decision making for the transition of the ownership in the business. We assist individuals within the family to understand how their beliefs and behaviors about (Money Motto ™) influence their relationships and the wealth transfer process.
Families seek us when they are:
- • Preparing the next generation for ownership/wealth transfer.
- • Looking to better identify with their wealth and make decision for it.
- • Dealing with entitlement and conflict within the family.
Francesco works with the individual families to develop their Family Wealth Constitution and Code of Conduct, which reduce the behavioral risk. The constitution is made up of unique ingredients of the families’ values, purpose, and vision for their wealth; which feeds and nourishes the family’s legacy and continuity.
