PBS travel show host and motivational keynote speaker, Michael Wigge, has a great reputation with many meeting planners because of his challenge projects. His television challenge shows and travel books have been aired on NBC and PBS like ‘How to Travel the World for Free’, and ‘How to Barter for Paradise’. The TV adventurer traveled the entire world without money for accommodation, travel, and food. Two years later, he traveled the world again and started his bigger-and-better barter game with an apple in his hand. Seven months later, the Kansas City and Chicago motivational keynote speaker Wigge achieved the incredible and unbelievable: He had turned that apple in a Hawaiian home! Another of his seven challenge stories is entitled 50 States of Wigge. His challenge was to travel all fifty US states within 50 days. Each day on the road, he had to face one adventure challenge in each state. Feel free to watch his trailer for more information.

The United States’ third largest city offers an amazing view from the Sky deck of the Sears Tower, one of the country’s highest buildings. You won’t just enjoy a view over the city but also four different states on the horizon. Michael also recommends to visit the Chicago river that floats through Chicago. As unbelievable it may sound, but this does float backwards. A reversal technique was introduced to lead the river away from Lake Michigan’s fresh water supply.

Last but not least, Michael’s recommendations on Kansas City: Did you know that Kansas City’s largest city park is larger than Central Park in New York City? Swope Park with 1,805 acres actually doubles Central Park in size! Kansas is often entitled the city of education because it has 25 colleges and universities. Kansas City spans over two US states, Kansas and Missouri. You might have some time-off from your conference and like to be in both states at the same time? Walk to State Line Road (well, that name tells the purpose of its being) and put one foot on Kansas and the other on Missouri ground; Michael always stays in the Ambassador Hotel Kansas City, Autograph Collection on 1111 Grand Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64106, +1 816-298-7700 and is highly satisfied with how well he has been treated each time he returned. This is the place to be after an intense conference day! It’s not too far from here to the Convention Center on 3240 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64111, USA.
