Opening General Session
The FIS Connect food and wine festival will delight all the senses! Delegates will have the opportunity to sample food and wines from around the world and savor culinary artistry from pastries to pasta. To further delight the senses, Darius Rucker will provide a private concert.
Rucker’s transition from rock into country, and from lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish into a solo career, proceeded so seamlessly that it’s difficult to even recall the slight skepticism that awaited him when he announced he was making that shift. Now, he’s as accepted a part of the country firmament as if it had been the very first stop on his journey.
“The thing that really shocks me is that nobody gets two careers,” Rucker says. “Especially in the same business. And here I am getting to play in two genres of music and having success in both of �em. I’ve been blessed, man.”

Cal Ripken, Jr. nicknamed “The Iron Man”, played 21 years in Major League Baseball for the Baltimore Orioles (1981�2001). A 19-time All-Star and two-time American League Most Valuable Player, Ripken is perhaps best known for breaking Lou Gehrig’s record for consecutive games played, a record that had stood for 56 years and many deemed unbreakable. Ripken surpassed the mark on September 6, 1995 by playing his 2,131st consecutive game, which fans later voted the “Most Memorable Moment” in MLB history.
The keynote presentation will be filled with stories from an illustrious career and share how the keys to success apply to the business world as well as to the baseball field. From his own philanthropy and his dedication to helping children around the country, Ripken showcases how individuals can give back and create new opportunities for others. Ripken is the author of numerous books on sports and parenting, and he is currently writing a children book series with ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd. Ripken’s autobiography The Only Way I Know is a New York Times bestseller.
