Make sure you stick around for an exciting closing keynote session on Thursday, April 15, when Bear Grylls takes the stage to cap off the Vision 2010 conference. Notorious for his Discovery Channel survival show, "Man vs. Wild", Bear has shown on many occasions that he knows how to take control of whatever situation he finds himself in.

Bear is a man who has always loved adventure. After breaking his back in three places in a parachuting accident, he fought his way to recovery, and two years later entered the Guinness Book of Records as the youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest, aged only 23. He has since led groundbreaking expeditions across the world.

But for Bear, it is not just about pushing his limits. It's about overcoming challenges, and living your dreams. This belief, and Bear's gift for communication, has led him to become a world-class motivational speaker, author, and TV host.

Bear's passion and enthusiasm for the outdoors are now shared and enjoyed through his TV programs in over 150 different countries, reaching over one billion people worldwide.

Bear from Man vs Wild is an awesome guy but do celebrity endorsements actually help consumers decide which security products to buy or do they cheapen the brand?

Regardless, I would turn up to a conference just to hear this guy talk.

I think one of the most interesting portions of a conference is finding out who is the closing speaker.  Now I have nothing to anticipate.

DO NOT drink from ANY canteens you may find laying around. You might also want to avoid wearing any of Bear's shirts.

Maybe he'll repel onto stage using found badge lanyards.  Then he can turn them into a handy laptop bag.

I woudln't put it past him, 'this how you swing onto the stage mate!' Great for TV, I don't know how psyched I would be about hearing him speak.
