Closing Breakfast keynote speaker.

Craig Karges

Wednesday, February 1, 2006 * 8:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m.

Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center

Craig Karges, master of the extraordinary and award-winning entertainer, will be the keynote speaker for the 2006 Winter Conference Closing Breakfast. His powerful message and his phenomenal ability to challenge the human mind will inspire and intrigue ACA's attendees as he brings the Conference to a close.


Mr. Karges' performance is an extraordinary blend of mystery, humor, psychology and intuition. He dozzles the mind while challenging his audience to question what is real and what is unreal, what is possible and what is impossible.

Mr. Karges first became popular as an entertainer, touring college and university campuses. His success in this field was so great that the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) named him Campus Entertainer of the Year--an award which had previously been won by rock stars such as Bruce Springsteen, Alabama and Jay Leno. The NACA, with a membership of more than 1,000, also voted him the most popular entertainer on the college circuit for four consecutive years. NACA's campus membership also voted Mr. Karges as Variety Entertainer of the Year for 12 consecutive years. In 2003, he became the fifth inductee into the National Campus Entertainment Hall of Fame.

After the college circuit, Mr. Karges shifted his attention to the corporate and association meeting industry, making his presentations for corporate giants, including IBM, General Motors and General Electric.

From entertainment-oriented The Tonight Show With Jay Leno to news-oriented Larry King Live, Mr. Karges has made frequent guest appearances on nationally televised shows. He has also appeared on CNN Headline News, CNBC, E! Entertainment Television, Lifetime Television, The Nashville Network and the United Paramount Network. He has given more than 2,000 presentations in 49 states and in Canada. His one-man show, Experience the Extraordinary, visited more than 150 cities worldwide last year. During that time, Mr. Karges began to study the fields of peak performances and human potential, incorporating into his presentations a motivational message accentuating the power of the mind and showing that nothing is impossible. According to Mr. Karges, "we use only 10 percent to 20 percent of our minds," while the capabilities existing in the remaining 80 percent to 90 percent are controlled by our subconscious.

Mr. Karges has been named the top performer in his field worldwide by the International Psychic Entertainers Association. The National Speakers Association (NSA) honored him with the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, a recognition that fewer than 10 percent of NSA's 4,000 plus members have had bestowed upon them.

Mr. Karges is the creator of Mind Games, a series of exercises, designed as games, which allow people to test and enhance their intuitive capabilities. He is also the author of Ignite Your Intuition, a book in which he reveals how to tap into your natural intuitive abilities to improve your memory, make better choices and be more creative.
